Interconnection

Marked urban hotspots are linked and related to each other. Getting together in the group we have discussed our individual observations and impressions of the site referring to its potentials and qualities as well. Each one of us explained their concept model and their addressed issues. This way we found the similarities of the individual concepts that helped us develop a combined concept with new issues, problems and opportunities. We overlapped all the values found by individuals and marked the interconnections.

quality of the canal needs to be recultivated. Our three final issues are: • Hotspots. Create visible and attractive urban hotspots. • Water. Use the water quality and open up the cityscape to the canals. • Context. Use the steel materiality to relink the site to its industrial heritage.

The heritage of the site needs to be persevered and remind people that the most important part of Frederiksvaek is the industrial history and the production of steel. Also as part of the heritage the water

Further more we have discussed the different possibilities and got into a bit more details in relation to the design elements, which will be useful in a later stage of the design process.

Visualization of the densification strategy. Using three types of trees to densify and define the important spots of the city.

Exploring the parks and public spaces of north – east Spain we got inspired by different places and elements from various projects From the center of Barcelona, then its suburbs, through the coastal Cap de Creus and finally reaching beautiful Girona, we were looking for inspiration and education we can get from the places we visited. Observing how local inhabitants use these parks and urban places, building simple research models

“inspired by different places and elements ”

of the spaces on site and bringing them in the Frederiksvaerk context resulted in the concept evolution. Recalling particular realizations on each site we have been discussing and tried to relate them to our concept for Frederiksvaerk.

Learning from Barcelona

There were a few parks we found more interesting for our concept development. We studied them carefully and tried to translate the composition into Frederiksvaerk context. The movement, the broad range of used materiality and the idea to combine different parts and levels

of the city were studied in Torrent dén farre Public Park. The idea to guide the user, in a very gentle way, with the materiality seems an important view for our main concept. It refers to one of the issues we focused on - using steel as a significant eye-catcher to define some of the important urban spaces and create links between them.

“Parc Central Nou Barris “ was also an inspiration for us, as the park is extending within the buildings creating a smooth combination between the housing complexes and the park. Our concept also includes the idea of public spaces spreading within buildings and housing blocks to create connections and

combinations. But also to attract more people into public spaces and certain important points in the city that we have defined, which will become destinations. A significant project for the current stage of our work for Frederiksvaerk is Placa d´Islandia. This Barcelona Park shows the movement and the link between two separated by the street parts of an urban space by using different ground materials and plants. The idea of getting a structure and a direction out of the plants and vegetation has played an important role for the work on Frederiksvaerk and helped to develop the concept of interconnections.

“Densification plan based on using trees” Developing the concept

During the Barcelona trip densification plan based on using trees almost as architecture was suggested to come to light. Vegetation is used to give character and identity to the hotspots that were identified in our first concept. Every chosen urban space should get a physical structure, a volume. There is no need for new urban spaces in Frederiksvaerk but the existing ones should be clearly defined. Using a body of trees we are

Defining urban spaces concept model adding a new physical layer to the urban spaces or problematic sites that are undefined. This way we will give character to the spaces and define them as attractions and areas with activity. We act with three different tree kinds to show different areas and structures of the city. Except of the main focus on densification strategy there were few concept directions we have discussed as well. We propose an inner and outer ring of hotspots to connect every important place

around the city, which have qualities to develop. This aims to relate the urban spaces to the more natural context of Frederiksvaerk like the vegetation on the hills and the water of the sea.

Final issues

Hotspots. Undefined urban spaces will be defined by a densification strategy of adding a layer of trees to characterise the important spots. Water. Use the water quality and

The existing path circulation will be improved and new paths will be added to link the indicated important public spaces of Frederiksværk - To open up the city to its surrounding landscapes. This will be achieved by the path networks and the new development of the main urban spaces, which will provide better connections to the surrounding landscapes both physically and visually.

?

Surrounded by the busy road, exposed open area of the urban plaza does not invite to use it as a public space. Located by the shopping mall and main pedestrian street has great potential to work as an interesting urban space.

High quality urban space is created through the densification strategy. Green volumes provide more intimate character and a higher coherence.
