The project is further development of the “Hybrid Common Spaces” project.
The studio considers public space as a space of the commons – a space of social interaction where resources are collectively owned or shared between or among communities’ populations. The programme aims to identify issues, and areas of future potential for urban and architectural propositions, developing strategies for specific sites and conditions. The main working tool is urban network – a series of interconnected cross-programmed spaces and architectural interventions, a hybrid combination of overlapping programmes.
The hybrid of a community center and pedestrian footbridges forms a gateway to the river restoration in Sannegårdshamnen that links to the new wetland offering meeting place to bridge “the gaps” in the neighborhood (bringing different people together).
