SITE ANALYSIS

BACKGROUND RESEARCH

No one knows precisely how the world will develop technologically, in population terms, politically etc., or precisely how this will affect the climate, and whether this will be overlain by natural disasters etc.[2]The consequences that climate change may have in Copenhagen come gradually, but the pace of development of predicted to increase steadily, with the most substantial changes occurring after 2050. A number of key factors are needed to consider in order to successfully adapt the city to the climate of the future:

Flexible Adaptation:

For a long term planning, it should not be simply according to a particular scenario for future development. In the other word, our green project should provide more possibilities for future development. Thus, flexible jointing between panels is one of our main focus, which future alterations always be allowed.

High Technical Level:

Technology has to be well-explored to ensure the wind power is being optimised as well as the establishment of the wind farm would not cause disturbance to the community. Thus, in our project, we allow minimum spacing in between every single panel leaf, in order to prevent severe friction occurs between them, which might cause the reduction in energy efficiency as well as noise impact that would disturb the community.

Synergy with Other Planning:

The city is being planned in such a way to provide convenience to the cyclists .Besides, green transport also becoming the mainstream of the city. In addition, the urban design also integrates with the wastewater management to resolve the pollution issue at the harbour. A wide range of water management systems are being installed to increase the water supply in order to meet the increasing demand. Thus, to incorporate the wind power well to these other planning, the ‘not in my backyard’ attitude must be overcame. They all should be working together in order to optimise the output. The sculptural project could heighten the awareness of the public about the wind power by attracting the community to experience it.

An Attractive, Climate Adapted City:

In Copenhagen, climate adaptation measures are representing the assets of this city. Thus, meanwhile, green energy becomes the attraction point of the city. In our sculptural project, we aimed to make it outstanding amongst the rest. Rather than only producing green energy, we would like to add in the aesthetical value to it.
