A Walking City

A Walking City is a project on which I was design team member while I was employed at WE Architecture in Copenhagen, Denmark. The proposal was our entry in an international competition to reinvent the city of Drammen, Norway.¬†The approach we took on this project was that of reinvigorating the historic city center of Drammen and transforming the city into a sustainable 21st century cultural metropolis. Although the city center had a prime waterfront location, it was essentially cut off from it because of a strip of industrial buildings and a railroad that ran along the water’s edge. This industrial complex has been struggling, and our proposal aims to reinvigorate the city by¬†reappropriating existing structures along the waterfront and transforming the once industrial center into an cultural spine.
