#placemaking

How are small scale, collaborative, bottom-up placemaking initiatives envisioning new uses for voids, in-between spaces and neglected spaces—and so pushing the envelope on the transformation of our cities? “Climate change, the energy crisis, war, migration, mobility and structural economic change are forcing an ever-increasing number of people to reclaim their everyday autonomy and to initiate social and collaborative processes that create meaning,” writes @bastian_lange_ .
The boiler room “Kesselhalle” at @kraftwerkbille is mostly empty today aside for occasional festivals and art exhibitions. Actors of Urban Change’s Team Hamburg envisions this space as a common good, a space for new forms of work and collaboration, culture, arts and beyond. .

Last week, #TeamChisinau inaugurated #CasaMicle, a pavillion and meeting space where people can learn more about their vision to turn Veronica Micle Street into a pedestrian zone. 🏃🏼‍♀️🏃🏽‍♂️🚶🏻‍♂️🚶🏾‍♀️
During the Sidewalk Forum, Architects, experts in urbanism and civic activists participated expressing their own ideas and views regarding pedestrian streets and public spaces. The adults, alongside with children, valued this amazing opportunity to have, at least for a day, the street as a pedestrian space. They played on it, engaged in long walks and conversations and drew with colored chalk on asphalt. .

Yesterday, we explored the port city of Rijeka and learned from @rijeka2020 and @deltalab_rijeka about an area called “Sweet and Salt” where the river meets the sea, an industrial area with many abandoned spaces that they are now reclaiming for the local community. One of their plans is to restore access for residents to the seaside and riverside for swimming, leisure and more — through simple and cheap interventions, using mostly what is already there. Here are some impressions of the day by the best ever @panosgeorgiou ⛵️🌊

It emerged out of nothing last May, and returned to nothing in September. Now, Berlin’s @floatinguniversity is trying to find ways to keep this inner-city offshore laboratory for collective, experimental learning alive. Actor of Urban Change Dorothee Halbrock from @halllohalllohalllo and #TeamHamburg was dean of Floating University’s open programs. She shared with us her impressions of the summer as well as the project’s outlook for the future. Read her story on our website – link in bio! ⠀

Sebastian and Naomi were just in #Hamburg on a (not so) secret mission. Great things are in the works and we’re excited to explore with @halllohalllohalllo and @kreativgesellschaft and Kraftwerk Bille to see what can happen in this space!⠀

Last week, audiovisual artists Francesco Giannico and Claudia Mollese mapped and recorded the sounds and images of the Salento Botanical Garden. Tomorrow, we will be treated to a live Botanic Symphony to celebrate and support the project of #TeamLecce, who are hosting our Academy Meeting for the next four days. The event is free and open to the public, so if you happen to be in Southern Italy – join us!⠀
