COPENHAGEN - second prize
The basic geometries of the 7 squares are 7 sections in the new city structure - leftover spaces of the original common’s horizontal landscape. A concept, in which geometry frames and incorporates the aesthetics of the unfinished. In doing so, the project is empowering the possibility of an independent growth of a social life in the new spaces. Each of the 7 squares has a percentage of common space which presents itself as a space of opportunity. As a principle, these areas are 0% maintenance areas. All activities and installations in the common are temporary and can only exist for a year at the time. The suggestion differs between the random, self defining order of temporality and the hard materials of the permanent urbanity which defines the safe and well organized city space.
