Community members of all ages came out to the box city workshop to design and site their ideal home. A giant map, 18 ft by 32 ft, was drawn to scale. Participants constructed and planned housing as well as shared community spaces.
Community members also had the opportunity to participate in activities focused on the interior of homes, thinking about the differences between shared and private spaces and particular preferences and priorities associated with each.
