2008 1 OF 3 NEW URBAN SPACES – LEIFSGADE
CITY OF COPENHAGEN - first prize
Leifsgade is one of three urban spaces in Copenhagen which will be build upon underground parking facilities. The idea is to establish an activity area with playground, sport facilities and sitting areas. The Urban space will be a shared space between cars, bicycles and pedestrians. The space is one large square from façade to façade. A willow tree planting will create structure and a pronounced green character.
