PROJECTS | NEXT
1to1 was formed as an organisation to support projects with Slovo Park in 2010, since then it has grown and expanded it’s mandate to change the way in which South African spatial design practitioners work with those who make up our South African landscape.
We have formed a relationship with funders and have had the fortune of receiving support from PPC in the adaptation and development of a Public Play Space in Slovo Park. This play space had been developed by working closely with the Slovo Park Youth Forum and the immediate businesses around the play place and is the first prototype for a larger set of micro0urban developments we are calling Public Play for Development. The concept behind these interventions is not the physical intervention itself, but rather the creation of a process of engagement between local leaders, local business and local government or local businesses in the area. We have seen the value of how building something with grassroots entities on site demonstrates to the immediate others the inherent social capital in our city and aim to use the process of co-building micro public space as a catalyst to support local leaders larger goals for their neighbourhoods.
1to1 has parterned with Steve Hoffe of Build a Future and long term project in mind for this endeavour. We are looking for more partners on this initiative and hope to hear from any potential collaborators/supporters
