Greener daycare yards!
We are piloting Parkly-modules in Green Daycare Yards -project run by our design office, RaivioBumann. The project is part of European Green Capital Lahti -programme. During the project we are developing daycare yards with multi-use elements and by adding more green in the yards. The project is based on urban design and participation design methods. A total of eight daycares take part in the project, which we will monitor over the summer. As a result of the project, we will develop a vision for improving daycare yards with placemaking and urban design methods to a greener and more activating environments.
During the project, we will use Parkly-modules to bring more green to the sand- and concrete yards. The children will grow edible and pollinator friendly plants in the modules. Parkly modules are designed to be an easy solution to develop different surroundings, it is easily scalable and multi-use element. It is also a low threshold alternative for big and expensive yard renovations

Kalasatama & Forum Virium
We are creating an inviting and green hang out place in Kalasatama for the summer. The agile piloting is part of Smart Kalasamata project by Forum Virium Helsinki. We are testing Parkly-concept and modules in a newly built residential district and connect the pilot to phasing too. For instance Parkly will visualise and mark the future green areas as well as the tram stop for the new tramline from Kalasatama to Pasila. Parkly modules will also have embedded sensors which measure the surroundings. The pilot will start in June 2021.

Vuotalo & Vuotori
Vuotalo is an active cultural centre in the Vuosaari district of Helsinki, which radiates active cultural activities and events also into the public space. Vuotori, a square outside the building will be one of the most active public squares in Eastern Helsinki during the summer. It is also a central point in the replanning of the Vuosaari centre. Parkly will bring life, places to sit down and relax and more urban green into the square. This is also linked to the phasing of the development of the square.
