Nørrebro Plads: A Vital Edge

Jack Alderman, Jesse Shan, Kevin Van Meter, Tatyana Vashchenko

Nørrebro Station is located on the boundary between two neighborhoods at the outer edge of Copenhagen, DK. This area is both vibrant and diverse but has historically been under-served by the municipal government. It lacks urban ecology, climate adaptation, and social infrastructure. The project site is split by a linear barrier, that is both physical and municipal. A rail line bisects the site, and demarcates the edge between two neighborhoods. Our design strategies for Nørrebro Plads shift, dissolve and lift this edge utilizing a multi-dimensional approach that is playful and innovative. Our proposal aims to provide rich public space that merges climate conscious design and aesthetic definition.
