In the second week of April 2018, a sixth grade of the primary school “Kartaus” in Zurich temporarily transformed a parking lot, as part of a project week on mobility and public space. In one and a half day, the school class built a bar from recycled wooden material: the Carrozza bar. In teams, they developed a design idea, a communication concept, several means of communication such as a flyer and posters, and prepared the decoration for the bar.
On April 8th and April 15th 2018, the official opening of Metamorphosis was celebrated in the two participating residential settlements in Zurich, “Bändli” and “Tiefenbrunnen”. In both settlements, a mobility share point with an e-bike and an e-cargo-bike each was inaugurated. The bikes can be used free of charge by the residents. A bike mechanics demonstrated to the residents how they get their own bikes ready for the bicycle season. Soon, young and old were busy cleaning, greasing, pumping, and tightening screws.
On February the 27th, Tilburg municipality and NHTV started with an innovative GPS- tracking experiment at primary school De Stappen. During a period of two weeks children will carry a GPS-tracker with them to research their multiple transport modalities within the primary school surroundings and neighbourhood. The idea is to show the routes of the children on a map. The routes can help to decide where to take measures in order to (re)design a child friendly neighbourhood. If for instance a route is very crowded with motorised traffic, do the children also experience it this way?

Fachaustausch in Düsseldorf
Im Rahmen der NRW-Landeskampagne „Mehr Freiraum für Kinder. Ein Gewinn für alle!“ haben sich 22 Kommunen auf den Weg gemacht, sichere Spiel- und Bewegungsräume für Kinder zu schaffen und zurückzuerobern.

The game was created as a celebration of the Grand Union of 1918 and wants to encourage the citizens of the city and the tourists as well to enjoy this special moment in a fun way.

Walking through the city you will find several artistic urban furniture:
Wooden bench- by team Kooho- 4 meters long, with a 2 meter tall back rest. The back rest is interactive, is made of mobile boards and can be moved to change the overall picture at every touch. It recreates a picture of the idea of the union of the Romanian nation, a century ago.
