CiTyBee is an offshoot itself inspired by many of the experiments done in Supertanker. One of these experiments was a “Camp” – Local Interaction – that we held in 2007 as a way of starting a 5 year project in a social housing area in one of Copenhagen’s western suburbs.
“Local Interaction” set out to research the possibilities for ‘design as a positive catalyst in an everyday context’.
We had invited both local and international artist/architects etc and the 2 day workshop/Camp was a strong inspiration – also for the present ideas in CiTyBee.
Before the Camp we held a workshop with kids from the local school in order to get their stories and ideas. This formed the starting point for the Camp.
