Lugares Públicos designed a structure for a public square in Mexico City, where locals can gather for cultural events, book sharing, studying and playing.
Lugares Públicos A.C. has created a new meeting place for the local community at the Foro Lindbergh in the Parque México, to promote culture. The structure has been achieved through a new practice in Mexico City: participatory urbanism and placemaking, based on the participation of the community in the creation of active and attractive public spaces.
Lea is a temporary structure for books and games surrounded by tables, chairs and mobile benches that create a background for cultural events. “LEA was inspired by the community”, explains Guillermo Bernal, urbanist and founder of Lugares Públicos. “During the past year we made more than 100 different interventions to see which one would be more successful, and that’s where the design comes from: a place for people to feel welcomed, offering various activities during the day.”
