Temporary urban spaces while we wait for the cities

More and more people are still moving to the city. This results in constant change and development in urban areas, requiring renovations and new constructions. Between the upcoming and ongoing constructions lie the temporary urban spaces, increasingly utilized as part of this development. By & Havn, as the developer, has recently established a temporary urban space with input from residents, associations, and business entities in the district. Common desires expressed included more greenery, additional places for relaxation and gathering, street food and retail options, enhanced safety-oriented lighting, art, and playful elements. Based on these desires, By & Havn initiated temporary measures such as benches with integrated lighting, sculptural seating furniture and light installations, trees, food trucks, eco-cabinets, etc.

How do we design the urban space in a sustainable way?

To furnish urban spaces in a sustainable manner is not just a trend but a necessity. Today, we are witnessing a movement within the construction industry where the focus is shifting towards a sustainable approach to product development and production. But what does this mean for the design of our urban spaces? In three exciting projects presented at the seminar, the focus was not only on changing the urban environment but also on changing people's behavior. This is the key to creating sustainable projects that truly make a difference.
