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. .
