Reprogramming the City
Reprogramming the City is a concept developed by American urbanist Scott Burnham. The philosophy behind the concept is that structures, surfaces, objects and systems in a city can be given new functions.
This is Reprogramming the City
Making cities car-free frees up space that can be used in other ways. The Kvadraturen district is currently being surveyed to determine how it can be used in new ways.
Project 1: What about Kvadraturen?
Reprogramming the City is not only taking place in Oslo alone. The method will also be employed in the further development of the borough of Laksevåg in Bergen. The project is a collaboration between Design Region Bergen, The Department of Design at The University of Bergen and DOGA.
Project 2: Reprogramming Laksevåg
DOGA collaborated with ByKuben, Telenor Cultural Heritage/Norwegian Telecom Museum and Edvard Munch High School on a project focused on reimagining new uses for the iconic, red listed phone booths from 1933, as well as developing their surroundings.
