The Charlotte neighborhood in Hedehusene, Denmark, is a diverse residential area with no less than 39 different nationalities. The social initiative "Mennesker i Fokus" ("People in Focus") works with cultures, events and "self build together" projects to focus on the positive aspects of diversity and the strength of cooperation across cultures. With these "self build together" projects the residents are involved in developing the common areas from concept to finished construction. Residents will have the opportunity to help shape their neighborhood and create the space they think is needed.
In 2013 I helped some guys from SUPERTANKER (a project and research network working with innovation and urban development) creating a 3D visualization of a unique playground which was designed by 6th grades students from the local school, called the Charlotte School, in the Charlotteager district of Hedehusene, Denmark. The project involved local craftsmen and throughtout ten schooldays the children where tought in many different subjects including math, english, danish, woodworking, nature & technology. I created the video above and the visualization images below using 3DS Max and Photoshop.
