Dreamhamar Group 10 Logbook

Homeless man working as a photographer:

- Should be more clean... - Keep the place as it was first built! - Respect the history of the square. - Could be nice with a barrier to shield from the traffic. - Vesterbo should be for all kinds of people. - Include all ages! - The paving stone is really nice, and should be kept.

Two men, 22 years old, from Norway

- The plaza is too grey. - To bring some color, we would like some flower beds and and art installations, e.g. a sculpture. - A taller wall to block out some more noise would be great - Great that there is table service out on the square

Two men, around 50 years old, lives in a shelter in Vesterbro

- We are regulars - Too much trafic Whats missing? What should be done for you to use the square even more? - Further screening of the square to create enclosure would be great. - There is only a broken swing in a tree at the moment, so some activity facilities for children would be nice... - More comfortable benches and some public tables with chairs. - An activity on the square, e.g. petanque, croquet or miniature golf. - Reduce the trucks that drive on the square to unload their cargo. - Reduce the influence of the commerciel stuff on the square (cafes, bars etc.) - create unity through free activities and community enhancing good. - Make it usable in wintertime by creating a canopy or pavillion a skating rink in winter would be lovely too....

Middle-aged lady:

- The square has a rough look (old materials, combination of different stones = good) - Remove the poles (no function) - People know each other, you feel kind of home here... - More prostitution coming, the areal going in the wrong direction close the square in some way. - Place some more flowers (dont think they would be destroyed) - Screen the cafs more. - The seats round the tree should have a backrest. - In winter make some small houses for all the dogs + the houses around the square is used more in winter integrate them in the square. - More lightning

Old lady
- Want the old stores and cafs back, much more nice atmosphere. - Has lived in one of the building on the square in 28 years. - Too many bikes at the square, special too close to the cafs, shops and corners close the passage next to Obelix caf. - Less traffic - Installing a skating ring in the winter. - Petanque play against the little wall.

Swedish guy:

- The seats possibilities are not good enough, benches not comfortable, should be more straight. - Removing or replacing too much at the square would ruin the square. - Maybe something some small in the middle of the square with different levels (moving activities) - The colors of the building should not be repainted in the Disney colors as they have been.

Street cleaning guy:


-Cobblestones make it difficult to clean ground cover properly. Things get stuck in between the stones and the sweeper is hard on them. Even the small stripe of asphalt along the wall is difficult to sweep, as dirt and garbage sticks to the rough asphalt. It should have been like the asphalt on the road, or even tiles (though this last thing seemed hard for him to imagine) -Vesterbro Torv is primarily used in summer season. Not many activities, but lot of garbage and dirt, especially after weekends. That of course is normal for Copenhagen nightlife. - People mostly just past through or sits on the benches, mainly foreigners and alcoholics. Last mentioned seem to have their social life there.

Two homeless men:- Living in a homeless shelter, where smoking and drinking is not aloud, makes

this area attractive to social gathering with other people in the same position. There are benches to rest on, city life to entertain, and shops nearby. - The commercial use of the area makes it difficult to change functions and use. - Better comfort for sitting would be nice, a table here and there, maybe some spots with bigger walls to block traffic view, a shelter when it rains -Play possibilities for children, as a swing or something to climb on -More green areas, maybe grass to play croquet, sand for petanque, a mini-golf course. - Music would be nice, as the church sometimes gives concert in the square - Sometimes they even line up with free food to homeless people or other who could use it - In winter it could be fun with an ice-skating area like in Frederiksberg, some shelter and maybe a heat source.

VESTERBRO TORV
Functions of the city squares Observations and reflection of Scandinavian Living related to - Squares in Scandinavia are often connected with activities and meetings. - Social gathering with friends and family more often takes place in door and often in private settings, rather in public areas. - Squares in Scandinavia are primarily used during summer time. - Scandinavian citizens are fascinated by the atmosphere in the South European squares and often adopt the constellational settings in hope to create the same atmosphere. Observations and reflection of South Europe -Higher cultivation of social gathering with family and friends in Squares and other public areas. - South European squares are used during most seasons. Conclusion - The difference in functions versus settings in The South and The North seems primarily to be bound to climate and culture. - Interactions between people are primarily based in cultural and climatically conditions. - Environmental settings are often bound to traditionally thinking. - Tradition is a way to make society and culture recognizable and familiar. - Tradition can cause monotony in the city. Especially squares often seem much alike environmentally as well as functionally. Rethinking Nordic culture and tradition => new functional settings/ new settings for more functions/flexible settings for functional diversity

Analysis and reflections related to City squares in Scandinavia


Architects rethink settings and use new methods to break monotony. But they can only shape surroundings, not necessarily make people accept it and use it the way it was originally imagined. How to get common citizens to take part in the creative process - How do you bring people to confront and deal with traditional thinking and culture? - How do you make people rethink and think beyond original/usual settings? - What is it the citizens really would like in relation to what they think is possible? - What methods/tools can be used to make people interact differently with well-known functions as well as environment? - How is it possible to get in dialog with daily users and other citizens to make them share their experiences, thoughts and ideas? - How is it possible to help them generate new ideas?

Square comparisment:
STORTORGET SQUARE, Hamar + large square + NOT functional as a public meeting place A more comprehensive interference on the square is needed VESTERBRO TORV, Copenhagen + small square + already functional as a public meeting place Little interference to emphasize what is already there
