CPH-Ø1 is the FIRST IN A series of new experimental FLOATING PUBLIC spaces IN COPENHAgEN HARBOR

SMALL ISLAND - BIG IDEAS

CPH-Ø1 is a small 20m2 hand made wooden platform with a linden tree at its centre. It is a simple and iconic metaphor for an uninhabited island and represents the first taste of a completely new type of public space coming to Copenhagen. Moveable, floating, public spaces free for people to explore and conquer.

A 'PARKIPELAGO'

The copenhagen islands will introduce a completely new type of public parks in Copenhagen - A “Parkipelago” that focuses on the place and function of public spaces in the city  - both in a local context where rapid urban development along the harbor side threatens the recreational spaces, but also in a global context where rising sea levels creates new challenges for urban environments.

The islands will be dispatched on suitable locations around the inner harbor but will also find their way to more forgotten and underused corners of the harbor, catalyzing life and activity. Hopefully giving back a little bit of space for whimsey and wonder to old industrial harbor sides. 

 

 

FlOATING FEATURES

CPH-Ø1 will be joined by CPH-Ø2, Ø3 and many more. They will include some simple swim zone platforms but also a floating sauna island, floating gardens, floating mussel farms and a floating sail-in café, all free to be explored by the increasing number of kayakers, sailors and fishermen in the harbour.

Floating flexibility

During winter and for special events or festivals, the islands can be brought together, creating a cluster more easily accessed from the harbour side.
