Community Census, a community engagement installation, activated underutilized open space in three neighborhoods in Brooklyn, NY for data collection and public outreach to understand local perceptions around programs, amenities, and assets. The installation captured attention by visualizing real-time data collection to spark constructive dialogue between Brooklyn Public Library staff and community members.
Context Approach Outcomes

Project Context:

The Brooklyn Public Library wanted to capture new information, and engage residents and visitors in several neighborhoods to inform and enhance its existing programming, understand community perceptions, and promote library use among diverse demographics. 3x3, in collaboration with TYTHEdesign, developed an engagement strategy and fabricated a mobile installation that derived from the ubiquitous American Census to transform a traditional survey into an interactive tool for structured community input.
