Three teams, three challenges

For the Making Cities Together Design Lab local initiators, international and local urban experts were selected. Three design teams spent a week working on new strategies to positively develop Nairobi’s scarce, poorly maintained and often unsafe public spaces.

Placemakers, local administration and UN-Habitat selected the following cases for the Design Lab:

  • a park in the business district
  • a network of slum streets
  • neighborhood courtyards

The placemaking design strategies were presented to the government, UN-Habitat, organisations and companies such as SNV, DASUDA, Philips and Planning Systems and to the public during an event in a park with more than 200 visitors. A jury of experts selected the strategy ‘MUST SEED’ – upscaling the initiative to improve inner courtyards to the neighborhood’s street network – allowing it to spur development of local vacant factories and commercial spaces, the landfill and train station.
