Focusing in the local problematic of Pejton they will face a global problem: the interactions between the cars and cities. The car is designed in order to make pleasant the way we transport ourself however there is not too much thinking in how we can benefit from it when is park. There is a way to convert this private element invader of the public space of the city into something valuable for the citizens? From the point of view of Architecture and Sustainability which are the solutions and alternatives that we can offer? The workshop will focus in implementing different techniques of design thinking, brainstorming and group dynamics to tackle together in a creative way the challenge of the parking lot in Pejton.
“Cities are evolving every day, changing their concept of life and architecture towards a life without brightness and nature. Why don’t we create something, which solves our problems for now, survives for decades and becomes part of our identity? / This is how we came with the idea of the Bollard Hats. Bollards happen to be placed all around Prishtina. Their only function these days is to prevent the cars to park on the side walk, otherwise they just meaningless. That’s the reason why we dedicated to modify them a bit. We already know that Prishtia is thinking of adding bollards in Pejton. Our only change is to make it multifunctional and we achieved it through our idea. Also, itʼs a project, which can be used on the existing ones so itʼs cheaper to apply them. Its unique design provides the ability to be changeable and removable, according to the situation. The fact that we came up with 100 ideas for these hats in less than 3 days tell that there are so many ways for them to be applied.”
