In response to the RSA Student Design Awards ‘Everyday Well-Being’ brief, I created the concept Pockets of Peace.
With 25% of the world’s population likely to suffer from a mental illness in their lifetime, mental health is a major issue affecting us today. The worst affected areas are urban environments and with more than half the world’s population (and growing) now living in cities, this is a problem that needs resolving, with this in mind, I have created the ‘Pockets of Peace’  initiative which looks at merging the boundaries between the urban and rural.  Utilising existing spaces within the built environment that have been wasted, misused or forgotten, these pop up pockets of green space will provide a respite from the city. The areas will take into account the publics needs, offering shelter, interaction and fun for all its users; in turn creating micro communities within the public realm which punctuate the everyday life of urban dwellers and ultimately promote health and well-being throughout the city.
