Arhus Harbour Strategy, Denmark


The harbour area of the medieval town of Arhus, blighted by industry and expansion of contriver terminals, is disconnected from the old town and reduced to a traffic corridor. This strategy provides radical traffic management, combined with open public spaces along the water edge is designed to release the place’s inherent potential. As well as connecting to the woodland to the north and south of the city, five character areas are articulated: station, cathedral, converted power stations,new developments and special open spaces. Winner of International Competition.
