Møller & Grønborg and ADEPT win bid to develop Denmark's most visited nature park
POSTED 11 Jan 2019 . BY Andrew Manns
Scandinavian architecture firms Møller & Grønborg and ADEPT have been selected to design seven new pavilions at Amager Nature Park near Copenhagen.

The wooden structures, set to adorn the 35 sq km reserve's coastline as well as its existing entrance and information centre, are expected to serve as focal points for sightseeing and leisure activities, such as birdwatching, kayaking, and wild swimming.

Plans for the architects' proposal, which has been described by Copenhagen's technology and environment mayor Nina Hedeager Olsen as managing the park in "the best way possible", also include the creation of a jetty and other recreational facilities.

The DKK60m (US$8.5m, €8m, £7.2m) expansion scheme is being cooperatively developed by the Danish Nature Agency, the Nordea Foundation, the Tårnby and Dragør municipalities, and the Copenhagen City and Port Development Corporation.

Speaking on the project, Henrik Lehmann, director of the Nordea Foundation said: "The project will make more people see, experience and use the nature where they live – in the middle of the big city."

In a joint statement, Møller & Grønborg and ADEPT, whose concepts will take shape with the assistance of infrastructure consultants SNC-Lavalin Atkins and BARK Rådgivning, said: "It was crucial for us to carefully fit the architecture into the landscape."

Construction on the park, which – once complete, is projected to draw approximately 2 million visitors annually – is slated to begin in 2021.
