Purpose and goal
Street Moves 2 is a way of reimagining the street, making it less of a place for cars and more of a place for people. Four municipalities will, in collaboration with the project team, investigate the potential of their local streetscape. Through an including and place based design process, modules will be developed and temporarily placed in the municipalities´ street spaces for a limited period. The modules can, for example, contain social functions, greenery and mobility solutions. In the final phase of the project, the results are evaluated and presented.
Expected results and effects
Creating permanent changes in the public space can involve a great deal of risk-taking. Temporary design can then be a way to test a new solution and a new process without making a major intervention on the existing structure. The expectations are that this project will create new values in the participating municipalities´ streetscapes and that the design process as well as the temporary solutions will be able to generate new knowledge for future urban development processes. Experiences from the project will be documented and shared.
Planned approach and implementation
The participating municipalities will work in local project groups and with local design designers. Citizen influence and location adaptation will be central to the project. To support these local processes, there is a project manager, a project coordinator, a design strategist and a design support at ArkDes. In the spring of 2022, there will be an opportunity for more municipalities to join the project to test similar processes. The project is documented on an ongoing basis and the experiences will be shared during a conference in the autumn of 2022 where mobility issues are in focus.
