New communities in the city
HALMTORVET V is a locally initiated project in Vesterbro facilitated by LETH & GORI . The project seeks to develop dialogue and communities in the public realm.
The project consists of a series of temporary architectural objects that are integrated into one large piece of urban furniture, which for a short period will transform the urban space and function as the framework for a series of new activities and meeting places in Halmtorvet. The project includes a street football field, an organic urban garden, a long table, places to rest and small plazas.
The intention of the project is that the architectural object for a short time melts into the city creating a new interface for interaction and self-organised activities. For example communal meals, street kitchen, parties, street football tournaments or an extra space for the local schoolchildren to play or study etc.
The urban space will also work as a backdrop for other urban events in the project period, which lasts until the beginning of October.
The project is developed with support from Statens Kunstfond, Dreyers Fond and Danmarks Nationalbanks Jubilæumsfond.
