5000+ was a design-led project for the redesign, renewal and reactivation of inner Adelaide.
The 18-month project began in June 2011 and concluded in December 2012. During this time we collected and enabled ideas and propositions from design professionals, businesses, not for profit organisations, government agencies and academia. Although the project has formally finished, its impact is ongoing and many of the pilot engagement techniques are now being used in city planning.
The success of the project and in particular, the engagement approach, can be seen by a more collaborative culture and a new way of working being adopted. The project helped shape the Vibrant City agenda and led to initiatives like activated laneways, temporary installations, trial projects etc.
