COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT: Community participation will be developed through the school, by involving students, teachers and the school board. By engaging with them, the project will be able to respond to their own needs and values. By strengthening the connection between people and the places they share, this collaborative process will lead to place making with better integration within the community.
PARTNERS: The main partners are Zayed College for Girls and Unitec Institute of Technology. The college has provided support for the workshops to take place, provided the space and teachers to assist in the program for students. Unitec has provided funding and equipment for the project, as well as knowledge and assistance from a lecturer of digital fabrication. Building industry stakeholders will also partner with the project for the fabrication of the pavilion – the companies Ecoply, Futurebuild LVL, and Resene will be collaborating and sponsoring materials for the construction of the pavilion.
