How do you make an urban space that teases people's curiosity and make them want to stay there? That is the question I have been exploring tough researching existing public spaces (Israels Plads and Mozarts Plads in Copenhagen) and by using architect Jan Gehl's theory about urban planning. If you take a walk in a city, it is easy to feel have urban spaces have different atmospheres, which can have a big impact on if we want to stay there or not.
Urban spaces is often focused on one specific function, where the user can’t have an impact on have they want to use it. Therefore it is important to focus on the human beings to create a living city, where people's curiosity and desire to discover the city is in focus.
To get people's attention and stimulate their curiosity I wanted to bring different textile surfaces and shapes to an outdoor urban space. Where there the shape and the colours changes from all angles, so people have to go explore it if they want to experience it.
