Päivi Raivio is an artist-designer and the co-founder of RaivioBumann - Helsinki-based creative studio with a mission to rethink public places using urban design, placemaking and public art methods and tools. Their mission is to create places, where people can meet others and discover the hidden potential of public spaces. Päivi also leads the duo's GreenInfra+ projects, which puts an emphasis on co-created green infrastructure. During their projects this year, more than 800m2 of urban space was turned into biodiverse green areas. Check out Päivis inspiring work.
During her presentation Päivi shared the concept winter in HEL she developed together with David Bumann. They built a bright swing, meaning a siwng that produces light through a dynamo. It's a playful and engaging art installation that invites people to swing and to lighten up the place through the motion. Päivi told about a snow model they created for a skating park that was used by local kids. She also explained the concept of a kiosk that invited people to exchange and gather.
Päivi Raivio's talk was part of the Placemaking Pils winter edition in 2020 hosted by Nabolagshager. We had the pleasure to co-host this event with our partners from Growlab and our PlaceCity partners Superwien, PlaceCity Vienna Floridsdorf, and from Placemaking Europe as part of our PlaceCity project. Placemaking Pils is a tool developed by Nabolagshager and is part of the Placemaking Europe toolbox. Download your free manual to get started on organising your own Placemaking Pils.
