Gellerup

 

Gellerup is the largest solitary modernistic dwelling area in Denmark. Once a modernistic dream and the largest development in Denmark with a range of excellent public amenities - it now suffers from a bad image and is referred to as a worn down problem area or a concrete ghetto the mass media. How can we transform this from a monofunctional concrete ghetto into a diverse urban district? The project seeks to radically change Gellerup by adding a network of new roads that opens up the area, and over the next 20 years double the density by adding diverse functions and typologies in between the old blocks and transform the vast semipublic green areas into urban streets, plazas and a revitalized green heart.
