(yes in our back yard!)
“Y I O B Y !” is an urban development strategy that focuses on adaptation, dialogue and mutual increased-value between the existing and new buildings. The project aims to praise these qualities and the various features that can be experienced both on the site and the neighbouring areas, by emphasising them to spark new synergies, in order to better not only the community’s backyard, but also the city’s backyard.
The area is being developed during a time where technology characterizes social development, and our habits and preferences are quickly changing. Services are supply are modified along with these trends, and many believe that our future surroundings will be defined by a certain generalisation.
We believe that this site can handle a high density, including underground, where large areas and buildings can meet each other. We feel that potentials for use are many, from cultural programs to experience-based shopping, health/well-being, food, production and more.
