Lively Cities


Lively Cities’ aim is to turn misused, underused and/or non-used spaces into new destinations where people choose to spend their time. How? By using new concepts in Europe: placemaking and place management. Instead of a traditional approach, where the design of a public space is imposed to communities and often made according to aesthetic criteria rather than the needs of potential users, the project chooses an approach where communities are questioned about their expectations and requests on defined spaces in order to propose solutions to decisions makers.
