This series of workshops offered participants the opportunity to allow imaginations to run riot and virtually create the village of their dreams.
With the participation of the community, the project provided a platform for discussion on the design of the village of Oranmore, supported by experts in the field. It provided an opportunity to explore and learn about urban design, using a familiar local space.
Participants were invited to attend a lecture by an urban design specialist in the morning, with some tea and coffee for a short discussion thereafter. This was followed by a virtual introduction to the site/ local space and some further urban design theory. Following lunch participants learnt 3D computer modelling skills and were provided with a 3D model of an existing space in the village allowing for their own interpretations and ideas to be applied.
