Copenhagen Will Soon Have A Set Of Roaming Artificial Islands As A Public Park (10 PICS)

Sometime this year, the harbor of Copenhagen will have its very own floating islands

The islands will feature plants, trees, and grass—everything necessary to provide a habitat for life over the water and under it. “The top of the islands will be planted with endemic grasses, bushes, and trees, which will provide a sanctuary in the middle of an otherwise highly developed part of the city for the local seagulls, swans, pigeons, and ducks,” said the architect Marshall Blecher.

 

The “parkipelago” was designed by Australian architect Marshall Blecher and Studio Fokstrot

For the construction of the Copenhagen islands, their designers will use traditional wooden boat-building techniques. The floating structures themselves are flexible in their use, while the materials that will be used are sustainable and also recycled.

 

The floating public spaces will be constructed using recycled and sustainable materials

For the construction of the “parkipelago” of floating islands, recycled and sustainable materials will be used—steel and floatation elements clad in Forest Stewardship Council-approved timber. As for the process, the designers will be using traditional wooden boat-building techniques. The islands will be moved from season to season between different parts of the harbor.

 

And will be moved to different places of the harbor seasonally

The new project is following the success of the first prototype island CPH-Ø1 that was launched back in 2018. It then became an attractive part of the harbor and won many design prizes. Later this year, it will be joined by three more islands. “The largest island will comprise nine modules with additional separate islands floating nearby,” architect Marshall Blecher told one media outlet.
