Market Street Prototyping Festival is a three-day festival where local artists and designers create interactive prototypes that engage and educate the public. The collaboration between the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts and the San Francisco Planning Department envisioned Market Street as the epicenter for cultivating the sense of community. Market Street was divided into three districts. Three Design Captains were designated to each district. This year, the BuildLab was honored to be the Retail District’s Design Captain. As Design Captain, we overlooked other prototypes within the district.
For this year’s festival, the BuildLab brought out the Mobile Craft Module to be the backdrop for several engaging talks between CCA students and faculty. The Urban Works Agency and AIAS/NOMAS held discussions and presentations at the module. Sandra Vivanco, Lorena Del Rio, and Peter Anderson brought their students to the module where they presented their studio work. These talks and presentations were held within the public realm to influence students on how to engage communities through design.
