This project proposes a system of portable carts for Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, which offers community members a platform to grow food, meet and socialize with others, and serve as portable stalls to cater for passing trade.

 

Through this portable cart system, we aim to empower the community and give them a sense of ownership and pride in the park, which can bring thriving culture and business directly into the park.

Gardening Carts

Families and individuals can use gardening carts to grow their own produce or flowers. This brings communities into the park as well as a well needed splash of color and life.

Farmers Market Carts

This cart market can pop up after games and on specific days of the week to cater to nearby and visitor communities. Through this, we bring businesses and communities together in the park.

Food Carts

Mobile food carts can be rented to individuals and small businesses from nearby communities to make extra income. The food carts are a good way to encourage visitors to stay in the park longer.
