‘Making Social Spaces’ by Carolina Caicedo

Carolina Caicedo is a co-founding member of The Decorators, a multidisciplinary design practice working with local authorities and public institutions to design, produce and deliver placemaking and community building interventions in the public realm. Working mainly in areas undergoing change, they deliver work that aims to reconnect the physical elements of a place with its social dimension. For The Expanded City symposium, Caicedo presented some of their recent project, including Hackney Circle –  an engagement programme developed with Hackney Council that aims to make the new Dalston Square in Hackney more welcoming for its older residents, and Barking Food Court – a project to reinstate a public use to a once civic building.
