Air pollution is currently a problem for Copenhagen and, in a broader scale, has contributed to climate change. Langebro (Long Bridge) and the roads leading to it, are experiencing the worst of the city’s pollution due to the heavy volume of traffic this area endures daily. To combat this problem, environmental organizations, including our sponsor Miljøpunkt Amager, have conceptualized a greater potential green strip for Copenhagen in the hopes of reducing traffic and naturally absorbing air pollutants from vehicles. Through the use of interviews and street surveys, this project explored the balance between the city’s political and public preferences for green spaces in order to create a surface design for, and web page to promote, the potential Langebro section of the larger green strip.
