PlaceCity – Placemaking for Sustainable, Thriving Cities
PlaceCity is an international project aiming at permanently and noticeably improving the quality of life in urban areas. Placemaking means joint, visible activities with the local neighbourhood, businesses and other local actors. Among the main topics addressed by PlaceCity are the design and upgrade of public space and plinth zones, possibilities for long-term functional and utilisation concepts as well as interim and multiple uses. In addition to the Norwegian capital Oslo, Vienna provides the second of two pilot areas.
The Viennese pilot area covers the central area of Floridsdorf in the 21st district. The Floridsdorf center is characterized by an active population that is already involved in numerous initiatives to develop its neighborhood. PlaceCity builds on this existing commitment and provides the impetus for new activities in the urban area, which are created through networking and new synergies.
