Part of building the smarter city is making room for ideas and fun to run free. That’s why the city has offered up our old ferry pier to anyone who wants to create, well, almost anything. And it’s totally free. How does it work? You just pick one of the 10×10-metre pixels in the 692-square-metre space and fill it with your ideas! There are tools on site that you can borrow, and it’s manned on certain days by staff there to help you realise your idea. It’s always open, and you can use your pixel for just one day or perhaps for a whole year. The area has free Wi-Fi, indoor workshops, a beach, a skate park, restrooms, a plant workshop, graffiti walls, picnic tables, and firepits for barbecuing.
Do you have an idea or project you’re eager to get off the ground? You can also apply for up to SEK 10,000 to get the materials needed to bring your pixel to life by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. So come build something, start an urban farm, host an event, or just hang out and enjoy the awesome views.
