Our Friendship Forest

WHAT Involving children in a new outdoor zone 
Østerbro, Copenhagen
 2021 / June
TEAM Julie and Charlotte

Outdoor spaces are vital for children’s motoric and cognitive development, and the project is focusing on designing a mutual outdoor space between the two kindergartens Centerbørnehaven and Børnehuset Kilden. A garden where the children in the future will be able to meet spontaneously on their own and enter new friendships across different ages and handicaps. For two weeks children from both institutions added form to dreams and visions for their future “friendship forest” together with All About A. On the basis of the children’s observations, registrations, architecture models and filmed interviews by the architects, All About A has developed a set of “the children’s design principles” which will be implemented in the future garden.

Thank you Statens Kunstfond for supporting the project.
