A Town Square On Wheels Creates Mobile Public Space

The Cricklewood Town Square is a bike-powered roaming venue for community events.

In the North West London town of Cricklewood, there are apparently no public spaces whatsoever. No town hall, no library, no square or even public benches.

To emphasize that, civic ideas agency Spacemakers created Cricklewood Town Square, a mobile public space that goes around the town and becomes a temporary venue for free public events.

With the mobile public square, the town locals will be able to hold events like film screenings, dog shows, a public dance, and workshops.

The mobile public square is pulled around on a bicycle and is touring Cricklewood until the 28th of September. A program of the events is available on the project website. The project aims to show the value of public space to a community.

The project was designed and built by Studio Kieren Jones. The graphics and signages were created by Studio Hato. The project is supported by the Mayor’s Outer London Fund, and London Borough of Barnet.
