my design work in and out of architecture

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.
