Community involvement in the design process is good for the public and creatives alike. We meet Yinka Ilori, the designer whose artworks have brightened many civic spaces, and visit Tableau Zürich, the Swiss outdoor gallery bringing art to the public. Plus: a preschool in rural Vietnam that puts its local community at the heart of the project.
