New ideas for a more Vibrant Winter City

Winter City - Open Air Neightborhood

Winter City – Open Air Neighborhood

Can the darkness and cold be a potential to create activities in the city during winter time? Often these conditions have been viewed as obstacles for activities, but a new open competition and development project focus on the winter city’s potential for activities in the public space.

Gehl Architects is a part of the jury in the Winter City competition, which is running for the next 29 days on Innosite – a platform for open innovation projects supported by Realdania and managed by the Danish Architecture Centre.

Copenhagen based Open Air Neighborhood are heading the project which also counts producers of urban inventory, a lighting firm, the Copenhagen winter festival FROST, as well as the Danish Technical University. The aim is to gain new knowledge on the conditions for activities in winter time and develop new prototypes of urban furniture to enable new forms of events and other activities.
