This color splash represents the Children’s Pop-Up Space in Kontula. Designed in collaboration with children, it incorporates toys and games for everyone to enjoy.

Creating child-friendly public spaces is crucial as it contributes to the overall well-being of our communities. Children’s Pop-Up Space is a testament to the significance of involving the younger generation in urban planning, ensuring that public spaces are not only aesthetically pleasing but also cater to the diverse needs and playful spirits of children.

This project is a vital component of the broader Fiksu Kaupunki (Smart City) initiative by the city of Helsinki and Forum Virium Helsinki. It strives to enhance public spaces and the urban experience for children, acknowledging their unique perspective and needs in the cityscape.

The placemaking project is a collaborative effort spearheaded by RaivioBumann, with a focus on sustainable greening led by InnoGreen. Together, they are shaping a city that not only prioritizes functionality but also prioritizes the happiness and well-being of its youngest residents.
