Ruth Payne, Karen Crosby, Ali Farmer, Jon Pigram and Cathy Rogers ran this workshop and projection event, open to anyone interested in trying their hand at urban design, no experience necessary – just a bit of imagination. The desire was to create designs to inspire an international artwork to be realised for a site in Helsinki, and as darkness fell the designs were projected onto nearby buildings.

This project is part of an international public art exchange project between Maidstone, Tallinn and Helsinki.  It involves each city designing a public intervention for a designated site in the others hometown that can be packed flat and sent to the recipient city for them to unpack and build or recreate. This event is also part of LOVE ARCHITECTURE a project initiated by RIBA running nationally in June 2013.
