Ny Tøjhusgrunden, Copenhagen
I passed through here after visiting the harbour bath at Islands Brygge. Its a huge new mixed-use quarter in the city. I was highly impressed by its people focused public spaces. They were well planted, had substantial bike parking facilities, picnic areas and playgrounds and any car parking spaces were relegated to below ground level! In light of the lack of people in them I must highlight that these pictures were taken early on a Sunday morning! When I passed through later in the morning, these spaces were actually in use! It also featured as a case study in the What makes a liveable city exhibition at DAC. Read more here.
The 91,000 sq. m. Ny Tøjhus site by the Langebro bridge in Islands Brygge has been transformed into a new quarter with mixed use. By the end of 2008, four big commercial properties and some 750 housing units had been built in a total of nine complexes separated by artificial basins and canals. The site, which is bordered by Artillerivej, Amager Boulevard, Thorshavnsgade, and Njalsgade, will serve as a new link between Islands Brygge, the University of Copenhagen’s Amager campus, and Ørestad North. A segment of the green bicycle route will also run through the area, part of the kilometres of bicycle paths that have been laid out up, down, and across the city.

In interesting video showing how injecting a bit of fun and interactivity into the public landscape can change people’s behaviour and actions.
