Hack-A-Bench: Fostering Community Collaboration in Public Space Design

Hinz Pak

Multi-disciplinary Designer

In bustling cities worldwide, urban planners and designers continually strive to enhance public spaces, often with mixed results and underutilized resources.

Hack-A-Bench is an initiative aimed at redefining the approach to public facility design with a touch of humility and community spirit. Instead of imposing just top-down solutions, this project embraces the collective wisdom of citizens.

Hack-A-Bench invites communities to creatively modify existing benches, fostering a sense of ownership and empowerment. The result? A collection of 10 uniquely crafted, ergonomic benches, a testament to the power of community-driven design.
