Dome of Visions and Theatrum Mundi / Global Street invited young
urbanists, musicians, activists, artists and musicians to meet for six
days to imagine the future of Christianshavn in Copenhagen during a
unique in-situ Ideas Camp, 2013.
The interdisciplinary charette was designed to imagine what could be done to create a vibrating life in the spaces-in-between of the city. Solutions could be physical,
temporal, sonic, visual, political, or a mixture of all this. With daily
interventions (masterclasses and critics) from established creators in
the Theatrum Mundi network and the creative milieu around the dome, the meeting resulted in new conversations about urban life and in a public exhibition of the outcomes on the final
day, with participation from the municipal authorities.
The Copenhagen municipality, NCC entrepreneurs, local makers and the Theatrum Mundi fellows working with the disciplines of sound, movement,light, space and politics all presented during the workshop, including the Theatrum Mundi director Richard Sennett. Financial Times architecture correspondent Edwin Heathcote and Guardian architecture correspondent Oliver Wainwright were amongst the many who responded to the work.
