How transformed an area of 8,000 inhabitants of a new master plan? Future Brøndby Strand Parks is an area that includes a high quality urban and located in the middle of nature. It has the best of nature and the best of the city. Nature up close and a rich urban life. This refers environment into every aspect of daily life – and become a benchmark in energy, transport and socially. Today, all the buildings and the landscape orchestrated east-west. The settlement appears monotonous and makes the place poor in experiences. The buildings are classified by function and layered both in plan and section. The ramparts and the separated traffic pattern means that pedestrians and cyclists in general have never track, which ultimately means that it feels unsafe to travel in area. At the same time we have climate challenges at district level especially in terms of rainwater where we as a society in the coming years have to devise new solutions. These major changes will be used to create values, spatially, socially and environmentally. A new face to the world. These challenges emerge for 5 overall landscape strategies: Establish 4 new locations are buildings hinges and new face to the outside world. Opens up the seats, so spatial orientation changed to go south-north across the buildings to break the homogeneity. Establish a stormwater park in Esplanade Park which merged with the settlement. Establish a new east-west connection in level urban Strait, which brings together cyclists and pedestrians at the same level at the center of the seats. Establish a new green super bike path that meets the Straits by the four new seats. The master plan won the 1st price 2014 Extract of dommerbetænkningnen “project description of storm water management, the competition most ambitious and as such exemplary climate protection and the generator of a new urban development.” Collaborators: Domus, BCVA and Moe A / S Copyrights: Domus, BCVA and Moe a / S Media: POLICY BO WEST ARCHITECTS ASSOCIATION YOUR HOME E ARCHITECT
the sea with
Climate boulevard combines recreational assets with climate protection. Through the simple raising the road towards the sea and establish a green belt, get Åbenrå secured to the sea and new recreational values. The cost of flood is huge and is a key driver for future security. We have in our project provided a flood-protection to level 2.50. Protection against flooding is done by digging a canal along Gasværksvej. Earth used to build a dike while there etab¬leres a green promenade along the canal. On the islands in the harbor secured against frem¬tidig flooding by dredging of channels and placement of the ground to the desired height.

Square Caroli opened and dedicated. The proposal is built around a coherent floor in natural stone, branching both inside and out, forming the basis for the interaction of inter-tiered seats. Square Caroli is the focal point for a transformation of the neighborhood and district, and is used as a generator to lift the district’s urban life. SHL is the talented architects on the job. The place is worth a visit and the very structure of the shopping center is different and new. The neighborhood makes a positive contribution to the city and urban life – congratulations to Square Caroli and Malmö City.

We have won the master plan and landscape design for the Sino ecocity, in competition with Steven Holl and GMP architects. The project covers a land area on 50.000 m2 a park and a platform that connects 5 cultural buildings. The nature and the city merge together to one unit. Park, culture, nature is mixed with a foundation of green. It evolves from each other and provides benefits for both. The city provides new possibilities for nature, new sites for green and the nature provides shadow, breaks the wind and creates a nice microclimate, scenery and variations throughout the season. In cooperation with the amazing Chinese architectural company Archiland . We have several ongoing projects in exports in collaboration with Archiland, among other Samaranch memorial museum. It is by far the most interesting and largest project the office has been involved in so far.

Kiruna conversion, or the city of Kiruna fled, is the ongoing project that involves moving parts of the city of Kiruna, Norrbotten County in northern Sweden. This is a result of mining in Kiirunavaara causes deformations in the ground, which move towards the city. The City of Kiruna Municipality has decided to city center should be moved to the east , approximately 3 km to 67 ° 51’1 “N 20 ° 18’2” O.
Mining in Kiirunavaara occurs underground with the so-called sub-level caving. This means that it breaks off and unload the iron ore from below the ore body. Waste rock is then allowed to fill the void that the ore is left behind. Orebody in Kiirunavaara inclined at approximately 60 degrees towards Kiruna. The rock mass overlying the ore body is called the hanging wall, while the ore body rests on is called the footwall. The slope of the ore makes the waste rock from the hanging wall collapses in and fills the cavities formed during ore extraction. Tensions in the rock makes the rock above the crack and gradually follow the downward path. The displacement is spreading upward and markdeformationer occurs at the surface, which over time develop into cracks.
Kiruna is located on the hanging side, and it is because of this that the city must be moved, not destroyed by ground displacements.
To markdeformationer occurs is a power of sublevel caving and it has long been known that the land affected by mining in Kiruna. In the 1970s, you had to cordon off the town island, which was very close to the quarry area, because of the cracks that occurred in the soil. The houses demolished since and people had to move from there. LKAB also drained Southern Luossajärvi to avoid markdeformationerna would cause the water from leaking into the sea mine. Dry facility began during the 1990s and is currently closed.

Kragh&Berglund April 2012
for the development
of Sandvika, Norway
Kragh&Berglund has been pre-qualified for the parallel assignment ‘Sandvika, Norway’ together with COBE, DRMA, Via Trafik and Yngve Andrèn.
The purpose of the parallel assignment is twofold and the two parts are to be seen in relation to each other:
• Demonstrate how the station area’s functionality, capacity, accessibility and adjustment to the city can be improved.
• Show how Sandvika downtown east can be developed and revitalised in a financially and environmentally sustainable way.
The parallel assignment will be used as an input to clarify the future use of the area through the area’s zone division and detailed plans. The competition will also be used as a basis for other work on other initiatives and revitalisation of the downtown area, which will be performed by the municipality and / or landowners, companies and other relevant parties involved in the project.
One of the purposes of the parallel assignment is to bring different strategies and solutions to a complex and challenging task.
A foundation for a gradual development showing initiatives and short-term and long-term potential is to be prepared.
Sandvig beach promenade is under construction and will open on 14 June. The project is to provide better access to Sandvig beach and increase the use of the area.
