Places That We Know is a heritage interpretation project delivered by icecream architecture as part of the wider work of Garnock Connections; connecting people and places through celebrating and sharing stories about nature, industry and people.
The project was developed through partnership working, collaboration with local people and the delivery of creative public walks, workshops and events.
Building on the knowledge of local organisations, we created a local resource for heritage that highlights the breadth and depth of discovery that can take place across the landscape of the Muirshiel Hills, Lochwinnoch, the Garnock Valley, Three Towns, Kilwinning and Irvine.
Places That We Know, which ran from spring 2019 until spring 2022 - resulted in a bespoke set of digital tools and interpretation pieces designed for long term community use and benefit.
Outputs include a Heritage Trail app and map, ‘Sense of Place Toolkit’, an open online Heritage Archive for the community, Virtual Reality visualisation and physical interpretation in the landscape and at key gateway sites.
