A continuous green urban space

The vision is to transform the square of Skt. Kjelds Plads into the green heart of the Climate-Resilient Neighbourhood. A beacon for how we create the climate change-adapted urban spaces of the future. An urban space where nature is permitted to spread and where traffic operates in fine interaction with recreational areas.

We are adapting Skt. Kjelds Plads and Bryggervangen to climate change at the same time, in response to the rising volumes of rain expected in the future. We adopt green and blue solutions that bring nature into the city, where it makes life better, healthier and more social for the residents of the Climate-Resilient Neighbourhood.

The landscape architects SLA Landskabsarkitekter, the consultancy Alectia and the engineer Jens Rørbech are behind the winning proposal for the Skt. Kjelds Plads and Bryggervangen of the future. It will create a symbol for the Climate-Resilient Neighbourhood, showing how rainwater management can provide a spectacular setting for green, social and active everyday life in the city.
