George Bernard Shaw once wrote: “If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange these apples then you and I will still each have one apple. But if you have an idea and I have an idea... More > and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas.” Open Field is the Walker Art Center’s three-year experiment in participation and public space. Taking place outdoors in the summer months, the project invited artists and visitors to imagine and inhabit the museum’s campus as a cultural commons—a shared space for idea exchange, creative gatherings, and unexpected interactions. The Walker’s backyard was home to numerous activities, from conversations to performances and temporary sculptures. This volume discusses Open Field’s genesis, exploring the meaning and impact of public practice for institutions.< Less

Open Field Production: A Reverse Archaeology By Alastair Parvin

Open Field Production is a project produced by Alastair Parvin at the University of Sheffield School of Architecture, under the studio brief Softpraxis; an opportunity to re-evaluate the role of the... More > architect in society. It interprets the rise of the amateur as a fundamental challenge to the embedded design values of systems and cities, and proposes an alternative to the ‘creative clusters’ planning model currently favoured by policy makers in the development of a UK ‘knowledge economy’. Using Sheffield as a case study, it anticipates the re-emergence of commons as a primary space of production, speculating with “absurd logic” upon how such a type might manifest itself in design terms. By proposing only minor distortions of existing sites, existing systems and existing hardware, it steps beyond the conventional limitations placed upon what architecture might do; abandoning the preoccupation with form in order to apply design-thinking to the continuous processes of formation.< Less
