Swarm – creating ideas for the future of urban space
The word swarm defines a large number of insects – or people – together in motion. Demographic and technological changes of these last decades have greatly intensified human swarms which now culminate in urban areas around the world. The direction and the characteristics of human swarms are ever changing and difficult to grasp. Designathon 18 wants to challenge its participants to critically think about urban spaces in regards to this notion of swarm. How does the swarm – as well as its single elements – affect public spaces, transportation, cultural values, quality of life, work, security and while we’re at it, happiness?
