We are not just designers of places: we also direct the process in space and time. It is an open end process, with no definite blueprint. First we activate public life. We improve the accessibility of the area and give people a reason to come. Investing in public space works as a catalyst for the redevelopment of city areas. It creates the framework in which the program can develop gradually and flexibly. The framework also places the location into a larger context of networks, structures and time. Restructuring the existing city is all about connecting people and places. Spatial design creates the conditions to do this.
