The project

Enhancing the city’s livability through light & sound interactions with the various dedicated public spaces.

The square is surrounded by the town hall, a retirement home and residential housing. School pupils, high school students and employees at the town hall are among the people who pass through the square on a daily basis.

What the project aims to solve
