Citizens’ participation: Families in Hamburg
In 2005 Binary Objects realised the first online dialog in cooperation with the TuTech Innovation GmbH for the City of Hamburg. In the course of the general concept „Growing City“, citizens were invited to present their ideas and wishes about a suitable environment for families to live in big cities. What criteria make a living place suitable for families? What is offered in Hamburg and what should to be improved?
The results of the discussion were summarized as guidelines which served planners, and also the politics and the administration as a checklist which gave important tips for the family-friendly design of living-spaces and the structure of housing areas.
