The Metropolzonen – Copenhagen (DK)

In Copenhagen, Noema conducted a cultural mapping visioning exercise for the central area of the city. The project (led by the Mayor's Office) was initially developed as part of an international competition. Noema entered the competition with a team of architects and urban designers, which included: Testbed from Malmo, and Danish architects DSB. The first stage of the project involved the development of a series of proposals on how to turn this highly touristy part of Copenhagen into a more exciting and liveable neighbourhood for everyone and not just for visitors. The proposal by DSB, Testbed and Noema was selected by the Mayor (assisted by a team of urban experts which included architect Rem Koolhaas and Gehl Architects) as the preferred development option for the area and is now being implemented.
