Next Parks

We collaborated with the Performing Parks design collective, Van Alen Institute, and the National Park Service to create the visual language and graphics for two community engagement workshops at Coltsville National Historical Park in Hartford, Connecticut, as well as a downloadable report prepared for the people of Hartford to brainstorm early ideas for the park. The workshops explore new park models that push beyond preconceptions of what national parks – and any park or public space – can be, and to re-imagine how these places shape and impact our everyday lives.
