Together with Gehl and Bernard van Leer Foundation, the City of Copenhagen tie Air quality data to urban experiences of children under 5. The collaboration aims to create a long-term vision for a healthy public realm with pilot projects that can be brought to life in the short-term.
We know urban design influences the ways we live. This effort augments data on hyperlocal air quality measurements from the Airview collaboration between Google and the City of Copenhagen with public life data from Gehl. The goal is to provide practitioners, urban planners and decision makers with tools in the form of fact-based design codes for healthy urban environments. The first step of the project has focused on how to establish a clean air network in districts to invite children and their caretakers in to areas with better air quality.
At this event we will present the ideas and preliminary work in the project. The aim is to get a constructive dialogue and feedback.
