This project defines the dweller as a key driver of urban development and change. Urban dwellers’ ways to live in and use the city creates pressures for urban planning and the housing markets in cities. DAC-project focuses on this urban mosaic of needs and creates measures for improving social urban development, with particular interest on experiments and innovation, new partnership formations, hybrid housing solutions and flexible ideas about collaboration. From urban design viewpoint, we will create solutions, which respond to several social and cultural needs of citizens and are replicable in other cities.
