Carlsberg_Connected

Carlsberg_Connected illustrates the possibility of
developing the Carlsberg site to feature a very high
density. Like a piece in a jigsaw puzzle, Carlsberg is
fitted into the surrounding urban structure, leaving a
convincing mosaic that links both the surrounding
districts and the site’s local history. The jigsaw piece
is divided into 18 smaller fields of development containing
both existing and new buildings. When these
smaller pieces are interlocked, streets similar to
open squares are created, thus gathering the individual
elements of the area together in an integral
whole. The puzzle pieces include elements such as
the Elephant Gate, which is given a new foreground
and a new background. With several such new interpretations,
the proposal presents both a serious approach
and a playful lightness in its relations with the
history of the place.
The size of the development fields is very realistic
compared with the process of construction financing
involved, but the proposed form they take of superblocks
represent an urban planning/urban space
principle which in the opinion of the jury is unclear in
terms of the degree of public orientation of those
blocks. Given that the superblock concept is taken
very literally and the superblocks are emphasised
topographically by means of plateaus, the apparent
risks are intensified and the nonhierarchical
street spaces lose credibility as the glue that binds the
fields together and as fertile ground for the development
of new urban life in the area. The entrant describes
a number of diagrammatic considerations
relating to the urban development of the fields, but
the entry is unclear from an architectural point of
view, despite its high level of ambition for the urban
plan and urban spaces.
Because of the density illustrated, including the density
of the area close to Enghave Station, Carlsberg
_Connected as a whole contains elements that are
suitable for further development and that bear testimony
to a high degree of professionalism, dynamics,
overview, and gungho
approach to and courageous
desire for innovation.
