Nordhaven | Copenhagen Denmark
An international ideas competition was commissioned by the Danish Government and the City of Copenhagen to develop and reinvigerate the entire Port Region of Nordhaven. The overall vision was to create a sustainable city district of the 21st Century that could serve as a lighthouse because of its innovative and future orientated solution to meet the challenges of climate change and resource consumption. The Spatial and Structural Plans detailed a spatial concept for the overall urban architecture and entire urban foundation and a main spatial concept for each individual district. A hierarchy of parks, water areas and pocket parks, squares and recreational facilities on and at the water illustrated hierarchies or urban life. The plan presented proposals for overall traffic infrastructure to the rest of Copenhagen to promote the use of public transport and bicycles and inspire people to walk instead of driving.
