Zsebpark

KÉK organized a public forum about the development possibilities of inner Elizabethtown (7th district of Budapest). The forum involved around 50 civil society actors and inhabitants of the area who discussed the possibilities of revitalizing public space and vacant lots, reorganization of parking, bike transportation and the development of new types of street furniture. The moderator of the forum was Roland Gruber from Nonconform Architektur, an Austrian architect specializing in community planning. The forum was an attempt to channel the local needs towards decision makers and to include bottom up initiatives into top down planning.
