Week 1

Studio AT Denver: WEEK-3

 By Joana Ferro


In week 3 we decided to start understanding the identified constraints of the physical environment. We together with the community identified 6 main problem areas to focus on which included :

1. Site access 2. Water situation 3. Litter 4. Electricity 5. Shack fires 6. Crime.

The problem tree was developed by the group to liaise with the community as a visual to aid with interactive discussion. Collaboratively we unpacked the roots to the dilapidated physical environment and as a result the “fruits” are the visible outcomes of what the community thinks or feels towards their area.
