Aarhus Festival

1:1 Architecture

1:1 is the name of the part of Aarhus Festival concerned with architecture and urban space. During the previous years’ festivals, the city has been transformed, for example with a forest on the central city square, new green areas, and a bridge crossing one of the most busy roads.

Once again, Aarhus Festival asks the question: ‘What if…?’

What if both cars and vulnerable road users could move safely and share the urban space?
What if the square in front of the train station could be a square for people and not just for cars?
What if the urban space inspired conversation with fellow citizens?

We want to contribute with tangible projects that bring urban development up for discussion.
