  1. 1. On the EdgeConnec ng city, harbour and nature at Fisketorvet Copenhagen MallUrban Design Studio Assignment 3Faculty: Henning Thomsen
  2. 2. DIS Architecture + Design Spring 2013Assignment 3: On the Edge - connec ng city, harbour and nature at Fisketorvet CPH Mall The Place We are on Vesterbro. Just next to the harbour. The area is a designated urban development area. It ic slose to central city. It is close to Islands Brygge (urban development area) and close to Amager Fælled (green, recrea onal area). The site - that goes under the name ‘The Circus Square’ because it has been used for some years by travelling circus’ - is just next to the largest inner city shopping center in Copenhagen, Fisketorvet Copenhagen Mall. It is next to a major road leading from the highway system to the central city. Both for housing, office and commercial uses the area is extremely a rac ve. This said, the area is also extremely fragmented, with a mix of different building types and forms, that don’t always suit each other but more work as individual elements. The major road next to the site is heavily trafficked. And good pedestrian and cycling connec ons through the area are currently missing.Frederiksberg Allé today The Task A private developer has acquired the site and made plans to build 26.000m2 offices and 17.000 m2 apartments. This will take place in a star-shaped siteplan with buildings between 5-8 storeys gathered around a green courtyard. As such the municipality has agreed to this plan. But they have also asked the developer to come up with concrete plans that show what kind of urban life, the area ought to cater for, and in par cular how the promenade along the water and passing by and through the new development can be landscaped and designed. The developer has asked you to take on this task. The Design Challenges The developer has presented you with a task: do your magic and get him the go ahead for the whole project from the municipality. The design challenges involved in this task, he said less about when he called on you. Most of the challenges, you need to observe, lie (hidden) in the recommenda ons from the municipality: • The treatment of the edge (promenade) from Tømmergraven to Fisketorvet • The treatment of the edge towards Vasbygade • The treatment of the edge around the housing/office-blocks • The treatment of urban life • The treatment of water, including rain water (supplementary municipal strategy regarding this which needs to be respected)2
  3. 3. DIS Architecture + Design Spring 2013Assignment 3: On the Edge - connec ng city, harbour and nature at Fisketorvet CPH Mall The Learning Objec ves Using a real life project we aim to learn: • how to understand the recommenda ons of a municipality when it responds to plans brought forward by a private developer • how to understand the role and opportuni es for urban designers/landscape architects when they get involved in a project that is already well on its way • how to analyse a fragmented urban area focusing on both urban fabric and urban life (and the poten al for more and/or be er forms of urban life) • how to communicate the lessons learned in the analysis of the site and its surrounding urban context • how on behalf of the private developer to respond to the recommenda ons of a municipality and use the lessons learned in the analysis of the site to produce an urban design/landscape architecture proposal for the design of the public spaces and promenades in connec on with this new development • and finally how to present this urban design/landscape architecture proposal in a communica ve and engaging way. The Proces The project will fall in three major phases: • Analysis (30%) • Development (20%) • Design (50%) A detailed me- and produc onplan will be submi ed to you at the beginning of the project. Each phase will terminate with concrete products The Final Presenta on Requirements: Analysis including documenta on photos and descrip onsEdge at Bo01 in Malmö, Sweden Context map Statement of intent Inspira on material and/or reference photos Diagrams in various scales Site plan Sec ons 3D representa ons, interior and exterior Presenta on Format Final drawings are to be presented on a DIS board, 120 cm x 120 cm.
