Amager gardens & Queens forest
This project is a vision for a new formal garden and forest on Amager Fælled in order to safeguard the area from new urban development. Two former landscapes are being highlighted and re-interpreted: the military shooting range and the old coastline (A.). They represent the contrast between the aesthetics of hortus and the aethetics of pastoral. The existing structures and elements (B.) are worked into the design proposal (C.). The military landscape becomes the grounds with seven gardens, and the coastal landscape becomes a wetland and forest with the former coastline itself becoming a walkable route.
