Portsmouth students build £3.5k pop-up public space

  • Comment

Students at Portsmouth’s School of Architecture have attempted to re-activate the city of Portsmouth’s public spaces with this pop-up installation


The project entitled #IHeartPompey, aims to bring life to under-used areas of public space in Portsmouth by encouraging local communities to take ownership of spaces and decide on their use. 

Designed by students Richard Williams and Joshua Brooks after an architectural competition, the installation provides a space for socialising and interaction. 

The students worked with the local community in a series of meetings to co-design the structure which they then built together in a couple of days at the end of May.
