Urban Interventions approaches design positively with the aim of achieving improved urban space in Phnom Penh. The work is a collection of images and text; interventions into the urban realm, as ‘food for thought’, addressing potential scenarios for the future Phnom Penh. The Urban Interventions will be created by the Urban Lab Interns during the upcoming Water Curse or Blessing!?! The Interventions images are installed as ‘advertisements’ on a series of tuk-tuks which travel the city throughout the day sharing these ideas with the public they are designed to serve. The goal is to treat the city as a gallery space and to communicate with a wide audience which may otherwise not be engaged in issues of public space.
