Project Background

With the coming metro ‘City Ring’, several ‘Quarters’ located on the fringes of Copenhagen will have a new level of connectivity with the rest of the city, transforming the way people can come to/from those areas. These connections will initiate other transformations that could bring great opportunities to the local communities. However, exploiting those opportunities requires focus, patience and determination.

A number of primary locations were identified in collaboration with Copenhagen City Council and the local communities that will form the focus areas to be allocated to the interdisciplinary teams.

The teams of students worked together for 5 days to develop a proposal for an interactive digital/physical solution that facilitated a more sustainable and engaging way of ‘living in’ and ‘interacting with’ the locality. Each team was advised by professional experts in digital technology, urban issues, society and sustainable living.
