Collaborative effort wins City Island design competition in Denmark 

A proposal by young Danish Architects MASU PLANNING and CORNELIUS + VÖGE, together with engineers Grontmij / Carl Bro, has been appointed as winner of the ambitious competition "City Island" at the port of Odense in Denmark. The postindustrial area is set to be a cultural island for the entire city - a place that gathers people not only in the city but the entire region with activities of sports, living, leisure, art, conference, business, sustainability, culture and water activities.

The project introduces a masterplan for the area, and a strategy and concept for a new urban city life. A new structure of building public spaces is integrated in the industrial history and heritage of the area making it poss-ible to activate the area from the beginning.

The jury felt that the winning proposal has a clear concept and a flexibility that made it robust in relation to the future use of the harbour. The proposal emphasises the experience of the harbour and the interaction be-tween public places and buildings. The architectural relationship between building and urban spaces is unique to the project, which also focuses on experiencing and exposing the specific history of the site.

The competition has been implemented in two phases; the first phase was conducted in late 2009 as an open competition. After this, three teams were appointed to proceed to the second phase, from which MASU PLANNING and CORNELIUS + VÖGE together with engineers Grontmij / Carl Bro was appointed as winner.
