This project deals with the questions of whether a bunker may be a recreational environment that can complement the City of Copenhagen’s strategies for green spaces. In this report we focus on a paradox between the City of Copenhagen’s strategies for green spaces and pocket parks, and seasonal changes. We have focused on a bunker on Liva Weel’s square which is included in a district plan for central Vesterbro. Through analyzing the City of Copenhagen’s strategies we identified three qualities of pocket parks; availability, location, and their purpose as recreational environments. By applying Kaplan and Kaplan’s ’Attention Restoration Theory’, we analyzed the concept of recreation and identified in what sense pocket parks can be perceived as recreational environments. Through the focus on the bunker, we have used post-phenomenologi to analyze how the state of fascination can emerge in an artificial environment through sensuous experiences. We interpret the natural elements in the bunker, and further we apply an urban life perspective. Our report ends with a concept proposal to the city council, which presents our concept for the bunker as a recreational environment in the urban open space.
