The proposal gives Bryggervangen and Sankt Kjeld's Square a strong identity as the city’s landmark for bluegreen climate adaptation. The project defines a distinctive urban nature of Copenhagen, that learns from characteristic biotopes in Copenhagen such as Utterslev Mose, Kongelunden and Amager Fælled and uses their processes in a rational and aesthetic way.
The result is an urban nature that is aesthetic and functional, biodiverse and sustainable, green and blue, climate adaptable, and creates a sense of community. An urban nature, which gives the Copenhageners a strong aesthetic feeling of nature right on their doorstep.
The project won the prestigious award 'Årets Arne 2020' by The Danish Association of Architects.
