Abstract

Our team assisted Miljopunkt Norrebro, an environmental organization in Copenhagen, in selecting a pathway for reopening the piped Ladegardsaen canal. We identified design options that meet the city's goals to add green space and alleviate flooding along the chosen route. Using maps and expert interviews, we developed and justified design concepts for a canal, pedestrian areas, rain gardens, bike paths, and a dual-purpose tunnel serving as a motorway and reservoir.
