ACT is a design practice in Copenhagen which specializes in the integration of physical activities within the built environment at all levels of design, from landscape, architecture and urban design to the design of public furniture.
ACT is particularly interested in what the design itself can do! How design can not only help to create attractive spaces and environments, but more intriguingly how design can create spaces rich with events and activities, thereby adding extra value to the surrounding context. ACT helps projects move beyond a well-designed aesthetic framework by providing real strategies and models for activity zones and focusing on the design’s inherent potentials and abilities to move and be put in motion.
Through a process of evidence-based design, ACT possesses a critial understanding of the necessary design parameters and the process of selecting and planning for appropriate project activities. Drawing upon multiple sources of research, including our own, and experience with existing “active” projects, ACT works in tandum with municipalities and private clients to produce overall design solutions that provide quailty results.
