Team & mission
We created Parkly to fast-track transformation of public places and to accelerate sustainable urban change. We believe that happy places and happy people go hand in hand.
The COVID-19 pandemic with its new challenges made us zoom out and reflect on our experiences in different urban design and placemaking projects from the past 10 years. We wanted to design a new way of doing things and founded Parkly, an impact startup company to bring out the best of public places and their potential with a flexible and smart solution.
Parkly is founded by RaivioBumann public art, placemaking and urban design studio founders Päivi Raivio & Daniel Bumann.
Päivi Raivio and Daniel Bumann are artists and designers with a “walk the talk” -attitude. They are passionate about better public spaces – the core of good city life and thriving communities. Makers by heart, seeing the concrete results and creative methods come to life in public space is the fuel which drives them forward to create change in urban environments.
