Artist-led community engagement and participatory planning

In 2015, San Francisco’s Market Street will be remade as the culmination of a four-year city led public process called the Better Market Street Project.  Rebar worked with the Studio for Urban Projects and SPUR to develop a community program to complement this long term planning process by creating a series of interventions that engaged the public in changing the street.

Can the street be redefined through its patterns of use? Through engaging the public in a hands on workshop can we cultivate new ways of thinking about bike lanes, intersections and interactions between people on bikes, on foot, in cars or riding transit?

Reclaim Market street was a ride down Market Street where we created full scale physical mock-ups of potential improvements, discussed plans in progress for future trials and gathered ideas for how to design a better Market Street. The day featured talks with city officials, bicycle advocates and artists. We ended the day at UN Plaza where folks relaxed in Rebar’s Bubble Lounge with refreshments from our pedal powered juicemaker, the Juicecycle.

Special thanks to the Studio for Urban Projects for organizing this tour and the accompanying exhibit at SPUR. Photographs by Lucy Goodhart, courtesy of SUP.
