Life between the waters

  • Site: Odense Harbor, DK

Like many other Danish ports, so has the industry here in Odense decreased in to small areas and instead, there is a surplus, which now allows for new environments of life that can better involve the city!

The project combines the tight spaces that already exist in the medieval town of Odense with canals, where houses, streets and squares are in an intimate and integral connection with water.

As the port feed our urge to travel, so the projects scenic water areas also brings memories of alien and exotic locations. Cities like Venice, Amsterdam, Sydney and Granada, is here exemplary references to how water can be passed through a new town.

This project was done short after "New Times in Old Spaces" and here we developed and experimented with the same concept.
