Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


En ny bydel (A new neighborhood), is a report investigating the urban life of Ørestad City of Copenhagen. From critique of the planning methods, to the lack of urban city life, much have been said and written about the shiny new part of Copenhagen, but yet very little has been, if at all, studied about the many inhabitants of Ørestad. What is attractive about the area and what have initially motivated them to move, to a sometimes slandered area outside of Copenhagen, and how are their views of Ørestad city now? These are some of the questions we seek to answer. The report include elements from urban planning and uses theories ranging from sociologist Anthony Giddens, urbanist Manuel Castells to architect Jan Gehl, among others. The report is furthermore based on the demographics of Ørestad City and the inhabitants view and desires of their surroundings and urban city life. This report can be seen as an inquiry into the use of many modern urban theories, on a particular new and relatively small geographic area, but also as a remark to the ongoing and sometimes discourse driven debate about Ørestad City.
