Development of a Dandora 'Model Street'

Using Minecraft as a digital tool, Placemakers involved local youth, men, women, disabled and small entrepreneurs of the deprived Nairobi area of Dandora, to develop a Model Street that the neighborhood may be proud of. Designs for the Model Street are full of joyful ideas for entrance passages, benches, street lighting, trees and garbage bins, coloured tiles. bricks and side walks. The Model Street serves as an example and test case to replicate the process in more neighborhood streets in the future. On the 6th of April the Minecraft designs were presented by the community to the Nairobi City County and the Deputy Governor Jonathan Mueke endorsed the project. The designs are currently being further developed by the local architects of CAVE. The Minecraft workshop follows up on the Placemaking Design Lab. Read the Minecraft report for more information.

Collaboration partners: Nairobi City County Government, UN-Habitat (Minecraft experts), Dandora Transformation League, KUWA urban spaces, CAVE Architects
Sponsor: Stichting DOEN, UN-Habitat
