In connection with the city ofLahti’s “Radanvarsi” trackside site, the city’s inhabitants were asked what kinds of new ideas and hopes are inspired in them about the urban fabric of the city centre. We have been in contact with around 100 local inhabitants during the spring and summer. We received many new ideas, wishes, and thoughts. Thanks to all the participants!
The railway area project is one of the official projects in the WDC 2012 project, in which the objective is the development of a human-centred urban environment.
A lively discussion has again taken place at theRauhankatu streetworkroom about urban planning and how citizens can participate in and influence the development of their own urban environment. TheLahtiresidents really have both enthusiasm and ideas for the development of the central area of the city and in particular the area along the railway tracks. It’s really superb! J
In this blog I have put up photos mostly from last week’s workshops.
Alan ammattilaiset sekä kansalaiset ovat tervetulleita Radanvarren avoimeen seminaariin. Ohjelmassa onn alueen ja kilpailun esittely, aikaa varataan eritoten yleisön kysymyksille alueesta. Esillä on näyttely kansalaisten ideoimista töistä, sekä linja-autokierros alueella.
Why am I specifically interested in young people?
We looked into the future and thought about what life would be like for these young people in the year 2025. We set out to generate ideas from a human-centred premise. What kind of personalities would they be in ten or twenty year’s time? How would they like to live? How would they get around? What sort of factors would persuade them to settle down inLahti? What kind of lifestyles or needs would they then have? The task of the young people was to look into the needs of the urban environment with a starting point in their own everyday needs.
