Purpose and goal
** Denna text är maskinöversatt ** The goal was to develop physical prototypes for changing the street space through an involving design process. The purpose was to develop methods and design guidelines that can be applied on every street in the country. The project has involved stakeholders from both the private and public sectors, who have collaborated in a continuous ongoing design process from initial analysis, to idea generation and development of the physical prototypes. The spread of the project has been extensive, even abroad, and in many ways exceeded expectations.
Expected results and effects
** Denna text är maskinöversatt ** Street Moves has largely been implemented as a design process based on Vinnova´s mission-oriented approach. Although the pandemic partly changed the conditions, the project has successfully been carried out in its entirety, including all sub-activities. Street Moves has in a short time made a lot to happen. The great interest indicates a great need for this type of solutions. A brief manual has been produced that shows how to do it, for anyone who would like to develop and design Street Moves modules.
Planned approach and implementation
** Denna text är maskinöversatt ** The project was set up as a design process according to the project plan. The work began with a short feasibility study, analysis of needs and sketch process. After evaluations and further development, a design concept was developed which was then tested as a prototype. The prototypes were placed on streets in Stockholm, Gothenburg and Helsingborg. Through inclusive workshops, the design process continued on the streets with learnings. After further investigations, the results were summarized in a manual and the process was documented in a report.
