Space Transformers: How to transform car parking space into traffic-free and usable space for everyone.

Graz, Austria
Wed 22.01.2020 14:00

In Graz (AT) we are transforming parking space legally and without permission into public space again. We built the “Raumwandler” or “Space Transformer” to do so. Simply put, the “Raumwandler” is an adapted cargo bike in the size of half a parking lot. So, two “Raumwandler” put together, take up the space of a whole parking lot and because it is an ‘ordinary’ bicycle, we could park them legally on every public parking lot in the city, for free. You want to learn how?

Raumwandler: Wie man Parkraum in einen für jeden zugänglichen, verkehrsbefreiten Raum transformieren kann.

Graz, Austria
Thu 23.01.2020 10:00

In Graz (AT) transformieren wir Parkflächen, die meist von Autos verstellt sind, in öffentlichen Raum auf legale Weise zurück, ganz ohne sich im Vorhinein eine Bewilligung der Stadt einholen zu müssen. Dafür haben wir den „Raumwandler“ oder auch „Space Transformer“ gebaut. Dabei handelt es sich um ein adaptiertes Lastenrad, welches die Fläche eines halben Autoparkplatzes einnimmt. Zwei „Raumwandler“ ergeben somit den Raum eines ganzen Parkplatzes.
