Tredje Natur , a Copenhagen based architecture firm has unveiled plans to develop Saint Kjeld’s Quarter into the city’s most resilient neighborhood by planning for extreme weather events, particularly cloudburst rain storms. The concept is straightforward, change about 20% of the existing layout to accomodate consequences of climate change,and create a new experience for users of these urban squares. Also the project must not interfere with current existing city functions, such as transportation.
“By far the greatest challenges our society face lies in the existing city. The goal is to upgrade the city to residents’ expectations as to how the city must perform in terms of sustainable, social and health related issues. Our key concepts are driven by the notion that a coherent and natural design creates the most powerful strategy and solution for the neighborhood as a whole, but also comprise a sensitivity to individual spaces, places and the people in the area,” says partner in TREDJE NATUR, Ole Schrøder.
