Studenteropgave: Basisprojekt


The focus of this project revolves around the Copenhagen Climate Adaptation Plans. More
specifically, the redevelopment of Tåsinge Plads in the context of neighbourhood-scale water
management. Our theoretical lens collectively comprises of sustainability, liveability, and critical
realism, and it is with this combination that we devise our own umbrella term - liveable
sustainability. In the body of our writing, we explore the implications of this new approach upon the
future of sustainable green space for the Tåsinge Plads neighbourhood as well as Copenhagen. To
this extent we draw upon Jan Gehl, Stephen M. Wheeler, Robert I. McDonald and Stephen Luoni
and their work within the field of liveability and sustainability melded into the cityscape.
Conclusively, we propose that Tåsinge Plads is currently fulfilling its intended multifunctional
purpose within the parameters of our liveable sustainability considerations.
