13. ACTIVATING architecture and urban planning 50 Examples of Development of Attractive and Active Urban Spaces

Type of project: Guidebook Organization: The Sports Confederation of Denmark and The Ministry of Social Affairs http://www.english.sm.dk/

Description

This extensive guide comprises concrete recommendations and inspirational material from Denmark and abroad concerning the transformation of existing urban spaces into spaces that promote movement. The publication can serve as a concrete planning tool for municipalities, for example when urban planning in connection with an area renewal scheme seeks to support an active lifestyle. The need for more physical activity in everyday life can be met by increasingly integrating movement in the architecture and design of the urban spaces we use in our daily lives. The guide makes recommendations as to how access to sports and physical activity in urban spaces can become a natural part of municipal urban planning and development in the future.
