 LOCO PROPOSES A PUBLIC SPACE OVER   A FUNCTIONING RAIL-YARD IN DENMARK   FOR A POST-COVID WORLD 

AARHUS, DENMARK

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.

CLIMATE CHANGE AWARENESS. A PROPOSED INSTALLATION INSPIRED BY THE MELTING ICE IN THE POLAR CAPS. THE LINES REPRESENT FUTURE RISING SEA LEVELS IN DIFFERENT CITIES ACROSS THE WORLD.

THE SPACE BENEATH THE WAVES SEEKS TO HIGHLIGHT THE POTENTIAL OF THE WATER AS A PRODUCTIVE URBAN SPACE THROUGH THE CREATION OF A SUBMERGED ‘’CITY GARDEN’’ UNDER KLAVEBOD BØLGE IN COPENHAGEN’S INNER HARBOUR. IN ADDITION TO PROVIDING NEARLY 100 M2 OF GROWING SPACE THE INSTALLATION SERVES AS A UNIQUE DISSEMINATION VENUE WHERE VISITORS ARE INVITED TO WALK ACROSS THE SURFACE OF THE WATER TO DISCOVER THE WONDERS AT THEIR FEET.
