The Neighbourhood Index is open!
Explore our online exhibition showcasing neighbourhood projects, practices and perspectives
The Neighbourhood Index can be accessed at neighbourhoodindex.org and showcases more than 250 neighbourhood projects, practices and perspectives from all over the world.
In spring 2022 we announced an Open Call for projects contributing to more sustainable, diverse and thriving neighbourhoods. Check out all 251 entries from architects, planners, urban practitioners, academics, artists and activists from all around the world.
The Open Call searched for ideas and examples on how to form better neighbourhoods: How can we share more at a neighbourhood scale? How can new urban areas become more diverse and sustainable? How can we make better use of the streets for neighbourhood life?
The many submissions show a wide variety of urban planning and architectural projects, urban practices and academic and artistic perspectives. All together an impressive demonstration of neighbourhood engagement and thinking. Many submissions display creativity in both (architectural) form and (cultural, social) content contributing to more diverse, generous and sustainable neighbourhoods.
"The energy from the statements and projects are inspiring and illustrate inspiring solutions for more sustainable neighbourhoods."
Jenny B. Osuldsen, partner Snøhetta, professor landscape architecture NTNU
"Neighbourhoods are vital to our urban communities. I am truly inspired by the many projects from all over the world."
Camilla van Deurs, City Architect of Copenhagen
