More information on a project that is extremely interesting both form it’s innovative use of the total environment as well as its collaborative nature from Damian Holmes of World Landscape Architecture.
Recently TOPOTEK1 was part of the winning team for Amagerforbraending Waste-to-Energy Plant international design competition. The winning submission stated that the site directly north of the main entrance to the Amagerforbrændingen (Copenhagen) should be used for recreational purposes in the future. The team propose to create topography as a natural continuation of the artificial mountain meadows on the roof. If the roof is the glacier – the park is the green meadow in the valley. The landscape has been modeled in a way so it offers informal sport activities in summer as in winter. The materials are simple and robust to make sure the costs for construction and maintenance is kept reasonable.
