This idea proposal takes it starting point from the built environment in Høje Gladsaxe and adresses the question of how we can rethink the neighbourhood for generations, to create space for interaction and strengthen the local community.
Høje Gladsaxe is a residential area in the outskirts of Copenhagen built in the 1960’s. It is a showcase example of the modernistic architecture and planning ideals, of what back then was a promise of the future and higher living standards - today is an area where the
architecture itself is creating difficulties to create a safe and lively neighbourhood. It is time to bring back the human scale to these neighbourhoode, to create a built environment that can facilitate meetings between residents through generations.
This proposal is named “The Frontyards of Høje Gladsaxe” and is exploring how the existing premises can be transformed to strenghten the local community and create a neighbourhood for generations.
