Data insights helped inform the design of pilots by identifying places where air pollution levels were high and where there were concentrations of people spending long periods of time, not just moving by. In Islands Brygge we saw high concentrations of air pollution along Artillerivej coupled with many daycare institutions and playgrounds along the street. Another location was the Ørestad Metro where people were waiting up to 20 minutes. The pilots involved rethinking the already existing public spaces in these locations – playground and bus stop – by adding new qualities and programs while creating barriers that could help reduce the exposure to air pollution. 

It also helped identify possible co-benefits by designing spaces that could help create more human-scale spaces with improved microclimate.
