National Street Service
City-wide, Philadelphia, PA
The National Street Service is an initiative funded by Gehl Architects and Greenfeild Labs that explores the value and potential of streets as public space. As “City Lead” for Philadelphia, Hinge Collective lead a group of 30 cohorts from all over the city in a 3 month program to conduct experiments in changing public perception of streets through tactical urbanism and unconventional community engagement techniques. With a focus on community empowerment, Hinge Collective was able to connect citizens with services through a tri-block party event that spanned 3 neighborhoods and magnified the mission of The National Street Service.
