This project provided Miljopunkt Norrebro, a Danish environmental group, with designs for a stand-alone pilot project featuring a daylighted river and green space that addresses both stormwater and pollution concerns. This small pilot project is part of the larger vision of daylighting the Ladegårdsåen, which would lead to the creation of a city green strip and flood management highway tunnel. Public feedback and expert opinions, gathered through surveys, interviews, and a focus group led us to incorporate natural and multifunctional spaces into our green space design. We are confident that a successful pilot project will showcase the potential benefits of a larger scale green strip for the city of Copenhagen.
