EXPERIENCE@PARIS
creating a community between locals and visitors

Travelling today became a low-cost commodity therefore a less enhanced experience, easy to consume

THIS IS HOW YOUR PARISIAN JOURNEY LOOKS LIKE TODAY

A memory of Paris?

These tourists display a shared commitment to a non-institutionalized form of travel, which is central to their self-identification as backpackers. When travelling, they are constantly looking for a real experience related to the city and travel destination.

Jai choisi cette auberge car jen ai marre de voyager en suivant les conseils du guide Lonely Planet. Avec cette auberge jai dcouvert une autre ville, et jai pu composer mes propres expriences. Cest en tapant experience + travel que je suis tomb sur cette auberge. Ya un buzz de fou sur internet... Comme jadore goter aux cuisines du monde, le ct culinaire de lauberge ma forcment tout de suite appt! Si jai bien compris, lauberge a cr des partenariats avec des coles de cuisine franaise. Les tudiants y viennent faire des stages anims par de grands chefs et il y a un roulement qui assure la relve. Tous les jours on peut goter des plats gastronomiques petits prix. Dailleurs le restaurant est toujours plein! Mme les parisiens y djeunent et y dnent alors cest pour dire! Je voulais aussi goter laventure, et la possibilit de dpenser seulement 15 par nuit pour dormir dans une capsule ma permis dutiliser le reste du budget pour explorer la ville !! par ailleurs jai pu inviter une super jolie fille (que jai rencontr dans une soire rock & cake) dner chez Guy Savoy! Ici, lauberge, les capsules ont chacune des fentres avec des vitres teintes, du coup on na pas forcment limpression dtre enferm dans une boite. Quand jtais allong, javais toujours un champ de vision sur le couloir et la salle de bain commune. Il y a aussi une alcve sur tout le ct qui sert dtagre et de rangement. Cest vraiment bien pens. Comme javais la cl de ma capsule pour le temps du sjour, je navais pas besoin de ranger et sortir mes affaires tous les jours pour les mettre en consigne. a ctait vraiment pratique!Depuis que jai vcu cette exprience je dois dire assez inattendue, jai deux envies pour mes prochains voyages: - trouver une destination avec cette chane dauberge pour revivre quelque chose dassez local, - revenir un jour Paris (dans pas trop longtemps jespre) pour suivre des supers stages de cuisine franaise On verra bien! En attendant, je vais me remettre au boulot!

Ida: Anna et Ingrid sont encore petites, mais mes souvenirs denfance sont tellement importants que je voulais absolument leur en offrir de tels. Avec mon mari nous avons choisi de venir dans cette auberge car nous nous considrons encore jeunes et dynamiques! Comme je travaille dans la mode je viens souvent Paris. Jai dcouvert cette auberge la dernire fois que je suis venue, lors dun de mes dfils avec un groupe de stylistes europens. Le magasine pour lequel nous avions t commissionn avait organis le repas ou tout le gratin se regroupait dans le restaurant de cette auberge. Apparemment ctait le lieu in du moment mais assez underground. Finalement jai rcupr les brochures et jai t sduite par les chambres et les lieux communs. Du coup nous sommes dans une chambre individuelle avec une petite mezzanine pour les filles. Elles sont ravies de monter dormir dans leur cabane! Le restaurant propose des petits djeuners parisiens tous les matins, avec un rapport qualit prix imbattable. Mais ce que nous apprcions particulirement ici cest la cuisine en libre-service. Nous adorons aller acheter de la nourriture franaise, les marchs, les charcuteries et les poissonneries. Nous ramenons toutes nos trouvailles et nous cuisinons le soir aux filles. Comme les filles doivent se coucher tt cest tout de mme mieux.

1 AN INSTANT URBAN ACTION TO GO


CHANGING THE PERCEPTION OF THE SQUARE THROUGH A SIMPLE EVENT STORY N.1

34

35

Being based in Hamar for 4 months was an opportunity to work closely with the community and to understand the existing issues...

Nowadays, worldwide, from Wall Street in New York to the paths of Delhi, a movement of disenchanted and leaderless citizens is reclaiming public space. The same generation is widely using Internet, where the possibilities for consumption and creation are endless, as the main tool for creating communities. As architects devoted to the 21st century society we cant work, as most architects did before or are still doing today, offering a well designed product to a well dened society. We are living in a world that is rapidly changing and constantly reinventing itself using the virtual world. The overload of information and mix of cultures and disciplines require new ways of thinking and working. In ecosistema urbano we believe there is no such thing as a universal solution. Each project is different, and Dreamhamar required multiple solutions for multiple challenges that only had one thing in common: Stortorget. We wanted to put forward the conviction that before planning a new square we needed to build a community of people who would use the square, who would keep it alive. A community is the foundation of a public space.. Yet, the truth is that the steps for building a community are impossible to plan. Nevertheless, we needed a plan and we found a concept that embraced all the possible solutions: we called it network design. Being based in Hamar for 4 months was an opportunity to work closely with the community and to understand its existing issues. Dreamhamar is about encouraging residents to become the creators of public space, instead of being just consumers. Its about starting conversations between different stakeholders, and doing things together in public space. Its about understanding Hamars current needs by iniciating a brainstorming and dialogue around the future design of Stortorget square, by means of workshops and urban actions.

INSTANT IMPROVEMENTS Painthamar was the rst urban action we performed in Stortorget, and the ofcial launching event of Dreamhamar. The idea was to rapidly transform the square, which until then had been a parking lot for years, by painting it. Then when people would come to see Stortorgets new colors, we could tell them all about Dreamhamar and how they could participate. It turned out this was not an easy task. Being the rst one, the very denition of the urban action was ambiguous. Its temporary and ephemeral nature created confusion regarding budget-result formula, and its hybrid nature made it difcult to effectively communicate the event to the targeted and needed community. We quickly noticed the need to generate interaction between the citizens, the Hamarsingen, would be an essential condition to iniciate the process. Interaction is very similar to a chemical reaction. We had A and B not reacting together. In order to make the reaction possible, we had to nd a catalyst. On September 27th a group of 25 third year students from the Bergen School of Architecture came to Hamar to imagine an instant urban intervention on Stortorget. They were part of Dreamhamars Academic Network. Their stay was short but intense and full of energy. Two and half days of workshop at the Physical Lab aimed to reactivate Stortorget, to get people aware of what was going on, to collect ideas, to have fun, to use the space in a different way, and to provide the conditions for people to react, become proactive, and make them socialize. During the workshop, two questions arose: - How can we bring people to the square? How can we create an atmosphere so they want to meet each other? - How can we make a mock up of what the nal square could become? How can we transform this former parking lot into a public space?

36

During a 20 minutes brainstorming session, the students came up with 20 different possible ideas for a new urban action in Stortorget. Chairs, an outdoor cinema, a stage for music, a skate ramp, a balloon landscape, a talk show, a sound installation, free painting on the road, an open call to do crazy things, an area for gymnastics, a heated pool to take a bath, a barter market such as bring a shovel and take a horse, connecting the square with the lake, a labyrinth, celebrating an outdoor mass, a storytelling by people, a candle light in the evening, a dark night dancing competition, a temporary public library, relocating the Bazaar building in the square, making a hole in the asphalt and lling it with candy, a poetry square, wearing rubber customs, building a staircase to watch the lake, placing a trampoline for people to jump, creating articial clouds, making a barbecue, organizing a dancing competition on a slippery oor, a ski jump, a sleepover party or even making Stortorget an independent country with its own king and queen. They were all interesting ideas from which we selected the Cow - to provide fresh milk for the coffee - and the free public lunch - to invite everyone in Hamar to join the event and to mingle. The idea was also to take advantage of this meeting to encourage people to write down and share their ideas for the future design, and personal memories around the square. Creamhamar was created, and the second urban action of Dreamhamar came out.

CREAMING STORTORGET On the D day, the cow from GJESTVANG GRD came to visit Stortorget, while students ran about to transform the square. They divided into groups, each assigned a different responsibility for Creamhamar: one of them settled the tables and embellished the urban scene, one prepared the food, one made the design, and one sold the farmers products. Once everything was in place, the only thing missing was the people. The long table was so nicely organized that at rst, no one dared to use it. But after one group opened the feast, everyone came rushing in. The results were amazing. It looked like someone was getting married in Stortorget and everybody was invited. People from all walks of life came, ate, enjoyed, talked, shared, met others, chatted, and relaxed under the sun. Students, retired, international, families... The students were running around mingled with the people, taking notes of their ideas, handing out info about the workshops, collecting suggestions for the square... All sort of conversations started naturally around the tables and people got a unique chance to meet others as never before at Stortorget. The conversation lasted and gradually involved all the people sitting around the table. We ended up making new friends and spreading the word of Dreamhamar. Around the table there was a group of foreigners who were studying Norwegian at the adult learning centre just up Kirkegata street. One of them was Joanna Mikulska. She was very curious about Dreamhamar. We met

and she told us about her previous work in Warsaw, which involved people in participative processes around the history of their city. Gradually, we came to the idea of creating a workshop for Dreamhamar around History. She was invited to write a post about her past experiences of similar actions, and to use it to invite people to take part in her project.

By temporarily curating the space, the event transformed the squares perception from a parking space to a meeting place. In other words Creamhamar created new experiences in peoples lives and therefore future stories to be told within the local community, regarding the square. Storyhamar workshop involves to me, a lot of uncertainties but also a lot of hopes. During the couple of hours with Hamar citizens, we will try to nd out important stories of the Hamar society. Stories that are part of Hamars memories. First we will re-discover the meaning of signs already existing in public space. Do the monuments of Hamar really refer to some common experience? What is their story? Second, we would like to focus on personal histories and try to discover how they reect the story of the city. Photos are crucial elements. Everyone will have to bring an old one that is important for them. Usually these kind of photos include a lot of private information, theyre like an introduction to the novel. Of course, to do this properly, to make up a kind of archive, we would need to collect them for months. Here we will make a small laboratory out of them. I hope well nd some real traces of Hamars identity that will form a creative inspiration to construct something referring to it on Stortorget. Storyhamar workshop invitation by Joanna Mikulska

SHARING EXPERIENCES The serendipitous encounter with Joanna not only gave birth to a beautiful initiative of a new workshop coming from the community itself, but also pointed out a signicant relation between the urban action and the workshop. Meanwhile Joannas history workshop Storyhamar - sought storytellers to narrate past experiences and rediscover new ways of reading the public space, the urban action generated an event which created new experiences for future stories. Stories are important to relate to a space and recognise a situation. While writing this story we listened to Paco Gonzalez and Ethel Baraonas second lecture in the Tactical Urbanism online workshop about storytelling, and how narrative gives us access to local knowledge, to the better understanding of the community creating it. Creamhamar was an action aiming to bring people together by using the exibility and accessibility of the public space to create an open, simple event.

NAME : Joanna AGE: 28 years old PROFESSION: Culture Animator. Worked on various project engaging the local community to explore their local history. FROM: Warsaw, Poland. CURRENTLY: Hamar, Norway QUOTE: First I would like to say something that is maybe obvious - Dreamhamar (called magenta project by my friends from Hamar) will not happen without ecosistema urbano. Because all those workshops, lectures, creative works and especially ideas to do them, could only come from people who are not from Hamar, who are from outside. From another country, culture, a different experience with public space. Second, the big value of this project is that everything is happening in process; taking into consideration a lot of different contexts, ideas, involving different groups of people who are using the square and just coming here from abroad for few days, and those who have never been in Hamar but are participating in the project through Internet. All those things cause a lot of unexpected ideas which are priceless in creative work. Its the rst time I see architects who are working like that, so much in touch with the community they are working for. Its very special and I think Hamar should feel really lucky to get this chance to nd identity. They just need to use it now! For me, the most interesting is meeting with local Hamar society, talking with people, some of them have lived here all their life, some of them were born here, later, many years ago, moved out and now came back. And while talking I also have a feeling that great people are living here and Dreamhamar gives them the chance to meet each other and makes their dreams come true.

Storytelling is a very basic part of human life. It is engaging, it allows individual interpretation and triggers imagination. It is about identities and meanings and about joining individual details together into a larger entity Sandra Via, Tuuli Mattelmk

Opportunity to reveal Hamars history. We focused on old and personal pictures, on Hamar monuments and on the past of Stortorget, in order to bring up the citizens private stories. Process started shyly but minute by minute people started sharing their memories. For example, I always wondered why there are so many monuments representing animals in Hamar: pigs, a horse, a bull? I knew agriculture is a very important part of peoples lives here, but it also turned out that in the past, for many years, a very famous animal market used to take place in different areas of the city. An amazing experience was also seeing an old movie from 1960 about Stortorget. It showed the square through different seasons: winter, spring and summer when it became a very lively place, where people would meet, mostly because the market was there. You could nd owers, vegetables, hand made tools or goods...; Stortorget was the real center of Hamar. After showing the movie, during a discussion with the participants, it was said that a great wish was that Dreamhamar would bring the square back to people. I hope this dream comes true.

Architecture is about curating places through the Mise-en-scne of experiences. Hence, learning about experiences from past events in Hamar in Storyhamar and the spontaneous performance of Creamhamar were essential to our understanding of the square and community, and important steps regarding our future interventions on Stortorget. IMMEDIATE AND EPHEMERAL Dreamhamar process allowed manifold urban actions to invade Stortorget and experiment different strategies of colonization: - OPEN-INSTANT EVENTS (Creamhamar) to bring all visitors by providing a platform to enhance social inclusion. - PUBLIC ART INTERVENTIONS (Arthamar, Painthamar) to create a new dynamic, possibly interactive, and identity of the outdoor space, in order to attract the crowd. - LIGHT ACTIVITY INTERVENTIONS (Greenhamar, Playhamar) of exible use to develop a temporary identity through a new active and interactive program. An urban action is not an art installation, nor a commercial event, but a sort of temporary instant improvement. They bring an immediate transformation allowing an ongoing exibility of the square through a variety of programmes and interventions promoting a change in the perception of the space. In Creamhamar the challenge was how to get people to meet outdoors when they usually meet indoors. How to bring people to Stortorget, a square where usually nobody would stay longer than ve minutes. Using light and movable furniture like chairs and tables, and local products from surrounding farms made the event possible very fast. These actions could be repeated easily coorganized by the community or by the council. During the lunch one Hamar politician and local citizen said this is something the Municipality could organize 4

times a year, to celebrate each season!. An urban action is an ephemeral intervention to change peoples perception of a space, and build a collective memory. They aim to arouse peoples curiosity and interest, and cause different reactions, which we observed and considered in order to understand the local and collective identity of different individuals. This was particularly relevant in the case of Hamar, where diverse activities were required to attract a diverse, multi-aged crowd, in order to consider a hollistic approach. In Creamhamar, this point emerged as equally important: creating a collective memory around new experiences. In order to collect memories from the past and wishes for the future, the students from Bergen came up with the idea to bring a cow to the square, offer free local food and sell local products, knowing that Hedmark was an important agricultural site. The interesting thing is that Storyhamar later revealed how important agriculture and rural life were in the collective conscience of Hamarsiens - it was constantly repeated during the workshop, and considered as a potential occupation of the square. Whereas in conventional architectural projects, the design process only concerns the architects, consultants and the clients, and often generates isolated solutions from the communitys needs and sites identity, the experimental and exible nature of the urban actions allowed us architects to react to real time issues of Hamar, by actively and instantly achieving temporal solutions.
