Placemaking Belgrade

Activation of Sremska & Marsala Birjuzova Street






Belgrade | Serbia


World Bank Group


World Bank Group Urban Partnership Program, City of Belgrade

In the framework of the Urban Partnership Program, initiated by the World Bank Group, superwien was engaged to strengthen capacity of Serbian urban planners in the area of participatory planning, to introduce new tools and approaches in planning as well as to develop and organize a participatory planning intervention for an area in the City of Belgrade. Placemaking is introduced as an additional tool for urban development, suitable for short-term and small-scale projects at low cost that have high visibility in public spaces and are led by the community.

Stari Grad Living Room
Superwien worked on the activation of two pedestrian streets in the heart of Stari Grad that need to be re-organized in order to become public spaces with high qualities for pedestrians and residents. The dialogue-oriented planning process included several interviews and stakeholder workshops, including feedback sessions with the local community. Based on the definition of development goals, Superwien proposes short-term and long-term solutions for the area, that combines the Hardware, Software and Orgware. All interventions are based on a zoning concept of the public space, determining commercial, non-commercial and cultural zones

Capacity Building
In order to share knowledge and experiences about placemaking, three capacity building workshops were organized for city employees, architects, urban planners, landscape architects, students, teachers, NGOs, etc. in Nis, Belgrade and Novi Sad. The workshops react to the specific local conditions of each city, such as riverfront activation or Transport Oriented Development (TOD). A toolbox of different dialogue-oriented methods is not only introduced, but also tested on the ground. The results of the workshops will be documented in a step-by-step guidebook on placemaking, including a variety of tools for different phases of a planning process.
