Grassroots maker spaces: a recipe for innovation?

Research output: Contribution in Book/Report/Proceedings - With ISBN/ISSNConference contribution/Paperpeer-review



Makerspace has become an increasingly fashionable term that many community
spaces use to label themselves. In this paper, we identify makerspace as an
experience-led community space where people gather to make things together
with the assistance of both digital and traditional making tools. This paper takes
the inspiration from both Tuan’s definition of place and Lefebvre’s ‘triad spatial
model’ and offers a unique analysis of what makerspace is in relation to makers’
experience. In addition, we would also like to discuss how these insights could
inform future makerspace design.
