“The street is the river of the city, the people come to these places not to escape, but to partake in it.” William H. Whyte

The sitymeter draws attention to the success of the Queen Louises bridge in Nørrebro, Copenhagen as a great public space. It celebrates the wonderful synergy that happens between the structure of the city, the history and the people. Its goal is to celebrate and encourage sitting, relaxing, taking a break and hanging out. We call the attention to a success, rather than a failure.

We looked at the bike counter on Nørrbrogade as a beacon for the city of Copenhagen. A culture and city built around cycling. We saw the counter as a reflection of ones presence in the city on the bike-. It says: You are part of the culture, you are part of this city as you ride your bike. The Dronning Louise Bro is a host for the culture and community of Copenhagen – it is a great public space. Our mission was to call attention to that.
