Pop-Urban Picnic Sites Build Community In London

Pop-Urban Picnic Sites Build Community In London

Reclaiming parks for public gathering through guerrilla tactics.

We recently wrote about how guerrilla tactics have been adopted by designers to reclaim urban spaces and build community as seen with designer Alexandra Pulver’s mobile eating utility. This is the very tactic adopted by the Vauxhall Collective, whereby the collective installed specially designed picnic furniture by Gareth Neal across two parks in London’s East End.

London’s East End contains numerous urban parks, gathering (and subsequently community) are often discouraged by the parks’ designs. With few opportunities for picnicking, this move seeks to re-ignite building community and energy into its urban parks.
