Our City Oakland event design challenge

Here is the set of first sketches for our Gensler team idea for the Our City Oakland event challenge. 

Now its time to build it, make it, construct it and paint it!



Our City and the City of Oakland are partnering to produce the first Our City: Oakland Fair. The Fair is inviting Oaklanders to imagine, build, and celebrate the future of their community.
This first Fair is focused on the theme of play. From February 4-6 February 2016, Frank Ogawa Plaza will come alive with new public design installations and performances that encourage Oakland kids, families, residents, and visitors of all ages to play in new ways.
