Copenhagen-based WE architecture shared with us their proposal for the urban plan of Rødovre Syd in Denmark. More images and architect’s description after the break.

Rødovre Syd is a suburbian area of Copenhagen, characterized by a mixture of open green areas, a network of roads, large apartment complexes and low row-housing enclaves. The project offers to transform the existing planning by adding buildings in a pixel-patchwork, as an addition to the 60’ies planning. The greater density allows for urban feel and commercial activities at specific zoom-in areas as well as a greater variety of residential.

By creating a green loop, along which the zoom-in areas are located and the densification occurs the infrastructure prioritizes pedestrians and bicyclists. Movement along the loop offers a varied experience, switching between low-dense areas, green space and nerve centers such as a market place, a sports area and a station plaza.
