How to build temporary furniture to create more community-centric spaces

Process Step

Modular furniture is an easy way to provide temporary solutions for public spaces. From seating options like benches and chairs, to tables, mini-gardens, and functional art pieces, this type of approach to placemaking is easy, cost-effective, and impactful, and is adaptable not only to different interests, but to all age, gender, and other demographic groups. The beauty lies in their ability to be created in a short time, with limited resources, and adapted to the needs of each space and community.
