Designers believe that the general public can contribute through ‘creative hacking’ and add values to existing objects in our urban environment too.

We can improvise makeshift seats on lampposts or balustrades and put nullahs or pocket spaces to creative use, hacking out playful (nano) public spaces in the city. Professionals like designers or engineers may act as mediators weighing and refining different proposals in that case. Are you ready to hack?
