Creator’s Park

2020, Advanced Design 2

Creator’s Park performs as a community park and an accessible film production site for local creatives such as students, web film-makers. This project questions: How might film-makers and the everyday spectator inhabit the same space? How can film-making shape our built environment?  

The park blurs the boundary between film-site and public space, bringing and encouraging creativity into the community. Elements of the film-making process are integrated into the public park and are experienced as one wanders through the park.  Through the study of the film Columbus (2017) by Kogonada, film techniques are restaged architecturally within this project to stimulate the imagination of the wandering spectator. There is a focus on: compositional balance within filmic frames, architecture and surrounding landscapes generating a contemplative nature.
