The goal of this 2010 project, which won the Velux Natural Resources Award of the International Union of Architects (UIA), was to develop a land-based solution to coastal sea-level rise in Copenhagen. The competition brief noted that a dam at the mouth of the inlet was not desirable. The solution was proposed in one area with a notion of duplication in surrounding areas. The entire project was developed and publicly presented within 5 days. Water should not be seen as an enemy or invader, but a natural aspect of the environment that must be lived with in harmony. I worked on a 4-person Master’s student team in Copenhagen for the project.
