WAN Award 2009 Urban Design Sector joint Winner
New waterfront regeneration plan for Danish port
The competition brief called for urban planning and innovative architectural strategies to create a dynamic, unique, and sustainable city district poised for growth over the next 50 years. This 200 hectare waterfront site is currently a container port and cruise ship terminal. The new district is expected to house 40,000 residents, create 40,000 jobs, and provide access for 40,000 bicycles.
The project vision, entitled City Regenerative, connects urban infrastructure, extends existing waterway, and weaves open space through a series of neighborhoods and commercial nodes. The project sets a new standard for low-carbon consumption by satisfying all of its energy needs; optimising water resources and recovery whilst minimising and naturally filtering waste, aswell as recycling materials and buildings.
