UiWE won an invited competition to design

At UiWE our focus was creating new ways for

temporary urban spaces in the new neighbourhood

people to use the area, dividing different types of

traffic and users using simple graphic elements

and urban furniture. An ambition was to enable

in this unique, former industrial area into places

people to feel at home in this industrial area. We

where visitors can both hang out and be physically

aspired to enable people to redesign the area over

active. UiWE were responsible for the overall

time (as in your own home), making the urban

planning of the area and designed two squares:

furniture movable and flexible.
