Multi-functional Spaces

Created through a partnership between the Community Research Connections program and students of Royal Roads University's Professional Communications program, this video explores the roles of multi-functional spaces in communities, specifically by 'unpackaging' the multiple functions of urban community gardens. Multi-functional spaces integrate multiple uses or functions in overlapping time and space. They contribute to economies of scale through sharing of resources, i.e., physical infrastructure, and provide access to diverse uses in one place, thus contributing to a community's vitality.
