REVIEW 2016

THIS IS WHAT WE'VE BEEN UP TO.

THE LIVE-IN LAB 

CO-LIVING

We wanted to find out what happens when you live and work with the same people. How can spaces help us work interdisciplinary? We learned about how community and spaces make each other. 8 participants +100 visitors. 

The indie publisher Word-O-Mat was born from this process.

THE CROWDSOURCED CITY 

URBAN DESIGN

We ran a crowd-funding campaign to make a tool kit on how to intervene a space based on the learnings from the project in Persborg. We didn't get fully-funded but we learned a lot in the process. Guide will be out in 2017. 

THE DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC SPACES 

URBAN DESIGN

It's not always clear what our role as citizens are when it comes to public spaces, so let's just build a bike to carry materials, give ourselves a name and uniforms to go out there, make some art and figure it out.

3V5/9 STPLN INTERVENTION

URBAN DESIGN

We worked with temporary open spaces,  co-creation and dome structures outside our workspace STPLN. It was a big learning on collaboration and how to translate the process of creating something physical through an interdisciplinary approach. This project opened up the possibility to adopt new technologies on how to measure the impact of infrastructure on how people relate to each other in space.

THE SALON

EVENT

This year we had 11 international speakers from different backgrounds sharing their work with us. Politicians, designers, artists and makers of all kinds. We developed The Salon into an experience event/ panel discussion. Next year the event will come back in a new format. 

#36 Wasted! Food waste in Europe
#37 Started from Bottom, crowdfunding to the top
#38 Citizen Journalism and Demanding more from Media
#39 I'll be back / Data x Design x Public Spaces

IT TAKES A VILLAGE

URBAN DESIGN

Together with Germany-based Yalla Yalla! we developed a concept for a modular community-based space which takes different forms: from a shared kitchen space, to a workshop to a meeting room, to a festival venue.

WORKSHOPS

ย 

COLLECTIVE INTELLIGENCE

This year we explored different ways of sharing our learnings. We hosted workshops, classes and created different spaces to exchange knowledge with others. We learned that we want to keep doing more experimental interdisciplinary work.

SEGE PARK CONCEPT

URBAN DESIGN

Together with Citytek-now CoUrban, and Jesper Berseus we developed a concept for a neighbourhood designed around community living and circular economy. Full of shared spaces for making, car-free and integrated to an existing park.

FUTURE COWORKING

URBAN DESIGN

We are studying what will the future workplace look like: the physical elements, the space and the community. We are creating a flexible workplace somewhere between virtual and physical work.

CROWD-SOURCED VISUAL IDENTITY

COLLECTIVE INTELLIGENCE

During 2016 we evolved from Connectors Malmรถ to The Connectors Society without defining a fixed logo. We wanted our visual identity to change with us and remained undefined. Different artists had made their own interpretation of what we do.
