”First life, then spaces, then buildings – the other way around never works” (Jan Gehl) We consider public space successful when it invites people to develop their own activities. In this respect, participation is essential. With relatively simple interventions, we activate the location and give it prominence. We create highlights that give the place identity. People take care of the rest. This is how we design a lively city, with places to meet up and places to be alone, a place to see and be seen.
