Project on 5th & 6th semester
Group project with Christina Särs Vernersen & Daniel Boesen
Masterplan & development strategy
of the former farmers' market in Copenhagen.
The transformation theme of this former industrial site has been to keep the print & traces of the original structures and super dimensioned roads, replacing the outlined areas with new building typologies.
A main spine runs from north to south through the site with different strips & sequences along the way clashing with the spine, each with own theme and identity.
Identeties & areas in Valby, local green connections, green infrastructure and connections to public transportation.
Concept of transformation:
from the orginal structure to a main spine through the site with crossing
strips dividing the areas with smaller paths within.
The layers of the structure:
arrival & entrances, rational &
irrational, prominent buildings & point-de-vues, space of transition, settlement density and special identities in each strip.
commerce, offices, creative workshops, culture, concentrated residential are, mixed residential use and public institutions.
Contemporary urban space
New urban space
Arrival at the main entrance to the new Grønttorvet.
The buildings are turned in different angles in order to break the visual
line towards the centre spine.
The 'water strip' divides two areas and creates a calm and recreative area with capacity of collecting rain water, changing character when the bassins are full.
The north border towards the train tracks contains a raw urban shortcut from east to west, while creating open landscape courtyards facing north.
