Describe the main aspect of PlaceCity that you are most proud about?
PlaceCity tries to involve actors, residents and citizens beyond the normal administrative standard. The focus is on the city made by the citizen, possibly supported by informal initiatives that make a better reach possible. „Cooperation“ is the keyword. Public space as a mirror of society is becoming more and more into focus. Appropriation, the citizen become more rebellious, which is good. A modern understanding of democracy that needs to be strengthened these days, also in urban planning.
