In recent years, the city has witnessed growth in the biotech industry and the relocation of universities to the area. Now, the city aims to kickstart urban development by collaborating with its citizens to envision new possibilities.

The Desire case in Kalundborg, Denmark, revolves around the introduction of a new architectural education in the town. In recent years, the city has witnessed growth in the biotech industry and the relocation of universities to the area. 

Now, the city aims to kickstart urban development by collaborating with its citizens to envision new possibilities, such as developing the city and encouraging the use of urban spaces. Our partners - The Royal Danish Academy and Knowledge Hub Zealand - are actively involved in engaging local citizens, with significant assistance from the Phoenix Group, formed by proactive residents.

Desire is a part of the New European Bauhaus initiative from the EU.
