Both the project stakeholders and the students were proud to present and discuss their project proposals at the final presentations that took place 18th October 2013.
Over the coming days the active images links will lead to a glimpse of the intensive development process that each group went through during the 5 day event.
Where: KEA, Guldbergsgade 29N, Copenhagen
When: 14th – 18th October 2013
With the coming metro ‘City Ring’, several ‘Quarters’ located within Copenhagen will have a new level of connectivity with the rest of the city, transforming the way people can come to/from those areas. The path of the new Metro in fact brings all of the sites with a 10 minute walking distance from one of the following stations:
In contrast to the man-made connectivity of the Metro system, many other connections have appeared between parts of the city that previously had very little in common. Recent changes in weather patterns have led to conditions that push the current infrastructure beyond their original design limits. In those situations, the excess water that is unable to drain into the sewers, remains on the surface and flows to the lowest areas of the city.
Both types of ‘connection’ will initiate other transformations that could bring great opportunities to the local communities. However, exploiting those opportunities requires focus, patience and determination.
The interdisciplinary teams of students worked together for 5 days to develop a proposal for an interactive digital/physical solution that facilitated a more sustainable and engaging way of ‘living in’ and ‘interacting with’ the locality. Each team was advised by professional experts in digital technology, urban issues, society and sustainable living.
