A context-aware tree in the center of Copenhagen

TREE.0 is an urban interactive installation created in collaboration with Copenhagen Solutions Lab, Danish Design Centre, Danish Architecture Centre and Gehl Architects. The installation was a part of Street LabĀ and a redesign of the area around Vester Voldgade in Copenhagen, where a digital-physical prototyping was a part of an experiment with the implementation of new Smart City elements in the urban environment. Throughout the project we tested design principles that adds to an ongoing discussion on how thick data can support the way people use the physical spaces in a valuable way.

“The collaboration with Interactive Spaces Lab is an opportunity to complement the tools we normally use at Gehl to understand and document the interaction between urban space and life. Our partnership focuses on understanding how the city is used and new ways of using data to improve the quality of the urban spaces”.
