Adressaparken: A Multi-use Playspace


Presentation Title:

  • Adressaparken: A Multi-use Playspace




  • We conceptualize place beyond the domain of architecture or planning per se, invoking instead a more flexible and user-driven orientation towards space. Learning from the cultures of the counter-establishment and remix innovations in art and digital media, we invoke the idea of “Multi-use Playspaces”, a public space facility exploring technological infrastructures, mobile technologies and materials, and placemaking community interactions that are designed to be freely extensible. Multi-use Playspaces aim to spark creativity and engagement through the cultivation of robust forms of play, learning, and engagement in public space. Here, we present our design-led development process in creating an exemplar Multi-use Playspace in the Adressaparken public park in Trondheim, Norway.
