Developments such as the new Warsaw highway and the removal of the tram system has meant that the lower town of Gdansk is now seperated from the city centre, and falling into cultural and social neglect.
This ongoing project initiated by the Laznia Centre of Contemporary Art aims to revitalise the lower town using competitions, workshops and exhibitions where architects, artists and politicians attempt to redevelop the area, especially utilising the old waterways.
The project intersects with recent public debate in Copenhagen about air pollution in the city. In collaboration with Senior Scientist Jørgen Brandt from The National Environmental Research Institute in Denmark a first prototype is developed for making an indicator that can be placed in the city and display local levels of pollution as well as pollution forecasts on individual streets. The project holds an open source script for displaying data from the Internet in a variety of forms.
