Workshop Space

By Meredith Bostwick-Lorenzo Eiroa

Background

Unfinished space has the potential to be creative because it gives ‘permission’ to users to use it in ways that finished spaces do not. Workshop space waits to be defined – an undecorated room, machine shop, hangar, or warehouse space – left rough around the edges.

Its unfinished quality encourages a dynamic fun space in which to tinker, fail, and figure things out. It is a space where experimenting is allowed (and expected). It is a space where it is OK to be messy.

Workshop space can function like a ‘popup whitespace’and can form itself on-demand when there is a critical mass and the need to solve a problem.

This recipe encourages you to make space for yourself by getting together with others to create a private ‘thinking den’ for just such a necessary, convergent thinking place.
