bjarke ingels has presented plans for a public promenade to be built in aarhus, stretching along the harbor of denmark’s second largest city. developed alongside gehl architects, the mixed-use scheme includes over 200 residential units alongside a variety of spaces for recreational activities that adapt to the surrounding context.

 

known as ‘aarhus island’, the project incorporates large and small scale interventions within its design, with carefully programmed areas intended to encourage social interaction and activate the entirety of the esplanade. construction on-site is scheduled to begin in 2015, with the first apartments ready for occupation by 2017.

  • Aarhus island is a masterplan designed both by BIG and Gehl Architects! Blinded by the starchitect perhaps….
