LOCO PROPOSES A PUBLIC SPACE OVER A FUNCTIONING RAIL-YARD IN DENMARK FOR A POST-COVID WORLD
Loco envisions a post-covid future for the city of aarhus (denmark's second largest city) with a proposal to cover up a "Wasted space" and give it back to its residents. Aarhus' functioning rail-yard is soon to undergo works to electrify its rails and replace it's diesel based trains, which means this is a perfect opportunity to take back a significant "Waste-land" that divides the urban centre and turn it into the breathing lungs of the city. One that listens to its residents and gives hope for a better future, with a brand new yard.
