A discussion between Jack Hughes (Irish architect and co-founder of Makers hub), Nico Ibaceta (Chilean architect and multidisciplinary artist) and an international group of students.

The discussion will focus on Gamle Oslo’s public spaces and the importance of negotiating the multiplicity of citizens’ voices during participatory processes. Experiments done by the students during will be the base for the debate. How do you consider the users’ wishes and thoughts? What implication do they have in the spatial translation process? Who are you designing for, and how do you balance the needs of the individual with the needs of the collective in a public design project?
