Nordhavnen Redevelopment : AR Future Projects Awards – MIPIM 2010 Regeneration and Masterplanning Winner

Winner – Nordhavnen, in Copenhagen, Denmark, designed by FXFOWLE Architects.

Developed in response to an International competition by the City of Copenhagen, the brief invited entrants to set new standards for urban development. Through the creation of land reclamation, the plan connects urban infrastructure, extends waterways and weaves open space into new residential neighbourhoods and commercial areas fit for urban life over the next 50 years.

The judges were intrigued by the way FXFOWLE’s scheme had taken a former industrial zone and optimised its exposure to view and water which created a new, holistic vision. The coherence of the plan has with it the promise of a series of distinctive individual place.

Nordhavn København, Danmark

Nordhavnen, or Nordhavn, is a harbour area at the coast of the Øresund, founded at the end of the 19th century in Copenhagen, Denmark. It covers an area of more than 2 km².

Most of Copenhagen Harbour’s traditional activities are situated in Nordhavn, notably ferry berths, a container terminal, marina, and industrial companies.

The agency By og Havn has started the 668 million DKK expansion of Nordhavn into Øresund. The project is the largest construction job in Denmark in 2013 and the largest consumer of steel in Northern Europe.
