Project Background

Every month one thousand people move to Copenhagen, both from within Denmark and other parts of the world. This influx places increasing demands on the city’s infrastructure that, to some extent, is being addressed by projects such as the coming metro ‘City Ring’. In addition to this, the task of enabling local inhabitant as well as newcomers to feel at home in their surroundings is an ongoing challenge.

The demands of modern life require that we spend increasing amounts of time away from homes and more time in public/semipublic domains such as work environments. However, we still need time to ‘revitalize/recharge our batteries’, but ‘how’, ‘where’ and ‘when’ can we do this? Can we revitalise the locality whilst we revitalise ourselves?

A number of primary locations were identified in collaboration with 'Områdefornyelse Nordre Fasanvej Kvarteret' (part of Frederiksberg City Council) and also COBE Architects that formed the focus areas that were allocated to the interdisciplinary teams.

The teams of students worked together to develop a proposal for interactive digital solutions (that in some way was rooted in the physical environment) that facilitated engaging ways of ‘living in’ and ‘interacting with’ the locality.

In addition to this, the intention was to develop an urban intervention that worked together with the digital solution (buildings, spaces, and renovations) focused on encouraging a stronger sense of connection between individuals and their surroundings.
