Community By Design

DSCN1623

I spotted this outside my dinner spot in the Drake Cafe window on my date with the baby tonight.  Between rapid fire supplying Hudson with Sweet Pea Mac and Cheese, and rough sketching my building sections for the MUC house, I noticed this Community Message Centre on the side of the bus shelter.  (also drank a cool glass of Kim Crawford whilst doing all of the above)

It was sponsored by Astral Media, and I think a great idea and in this case that means good design.  It will no doubt get abused in the wrong areas, but here, right outside the hotel it’s a lovely and practical community addition to an otherwise utilitarian space.

Little gestures go miles to creating the overall tone.  True for interior spaces, street scapes and entire communities!
