Kopenhagen: Ørestad & Amager Fælled
Ich hatte noch eine letzte Serie von meiner Chorreise von voriges Jahr, nämlich von der Dänischen Hauptstadt.
Im Stadtzentrum habe ich fast keine Bilder gemacht door reden ivm. Aber unsere Jugendherberge im Süden des Amager Fælled, ein großes Naturgebiet zwischen dem Stadtzentrum und Ørestad. Wenn wir einige Stunden Freizeit hatten, ging ich spazieren in Ørestad, der zweite Teil enthält Aussichten von einem Hügel im Amager Fælled.
Die Bilder sind von Juli 2009.
Nachdem ich Ørestad besucht hatte, kamen wir in einem Museum, wo man ein Buch verkaufte: ‘New Architecture in Copenhagen X 2009/2010’. Ich wusste also nicht im Voraus, was wo ist und was interessant ist, aber in jedem Fall werde ich bei den Gebäuden, die in diesem Buch stehen, die Erklärung hier stellen.
1. Zuerst ein bisschen Stadtzentrum.

“Ørestad is, until now, the biggest overall city development project in Copenhagen. A considerable area of the green Amager Fælled was set aside for town development, partly because the population, is growing, and partly because the city was about to start building the Metro. The profits from the sale of the lots in Ørestad were used to finance parts of the extensive metro building. Roughly speaking 3 new districts have come into existence: Ørestad North, City and South.
The closest neighbour to the old Copenhagen is Ørestad North, created with the ambition of giving the city a new centre for culture, media and communication technology. Placing Copenhagen University here is a natural choice. The IT University, several residence halls for students and the new DR-Byen have already been constructed, leaving Ørestad North as the most built-up part of Ørestad. The university and the residences have already brought special life to the still very young district. All in all 2000 inhabitants, between 5000 and 10000 employees and 20000 students are expected to take over Ørestad North.
The developing of Ørestad City has been much more of an effort. The starting point here was virtually a bare field. The huge shopping centre Field’s makes for lively shopping, but does not offer its surroundings anything but huge closed facades. There are on the other hand plenty of architectural experiments with VM Husene and VM Bjerget topping the list. The district is laid out around the enormous Øcity Park. It is a very long process for a city to take shape. Behind Field’s Daniel Libeskind has drawn the plan for yet another area full of curved arches and quirky shapes. Carrying it out, however, may not be possible for a long time to come, and there are no current building projects.
Ørestad South, which truly is a bare field, is furthest away. The plan was ready. The intention was to construct a fairly densely built-up town in close contact with nature around it and a number of unifying and extremely innovative urban spaces. However, the economic crisis set in and for the time being there is only a solitary residential complex far away surrounded by a lot of open space. While waiting for better times the whole area is being sowed with grass. A temporary layout sees to it that there is plenty of space for roller-skating, skateboarding, wild play and other physical activities.

“One of the biggest challenges posed by the development of the capital was to bring life to the new areas. Øcity Bypark belongs on a list of places which prove that these things take time. It was laid out as a large communal park for the many new homes bordering on the enormous area. Yet, despite wide expanses, paths and multiple benches, it did not attract the life that unfolded behind the windows. If the park was to be used as a social venue for residents, it therefore had to be redesigned.
Brainstorming and collaboration between architects and residents resulted in a park with 8 garden, park and landscape ‘islands’, each appealing to different users. The 8 islands form small, clearly demarcated gardens fitted out for diverse activities and experiences for playful outdoor people of all ages - from a beach volley court to a kissing bench. A communications agency created signs with alternative, cheerful orders under the motto “here you are free to…”. Time will tell if this sweeping transformation of the park boosts the number of visitors.

“In the centre of Ørestad City the first of Copenhagen Towers’ 4 phases has gone up. A central atrium open to the public joins a 25-storeyed hotel with a 20-storeyed office tower with the biggest incorporated solar cell system in Denmark. The aim here has been to create a working environment with a high service level. The employees are offered access to everything from a dentist to shopping brought to the car. Thus serviced, the future work force, although counting 5000 people, is destined to make a minimal impression on the immediate surroundings.
Architect:: Dissing+Weitling / Foster + Partners.

“The 288 housing units for young people in Ørestad were actually built as 72 relatively spacious basic flats, a layout that will make it fairly easy to transform the clusters into family flats. The complex is located on the canal right behind the gigantic shopping mall Fields in the new Ørestad City. The building stands out clearly with its multicoloured panels, a feature that makes the facade change character as one passes along the waterfront. The design was intended to create a youthful contrast to the adjacent buildings.

Ich ging mal ins Geschäftszentrum Fields in. Es war ziemlich groß, aber gigantisch war es auch nicht. Es gab wenig Leute, weil die Geschäfte gerade schlossen.

“Boasting a 7-storeyed black tower and a location in a traffic junction the international pharmaceutical concern Ferring has become a symbol and a landmark in Ørestad City. From Malmö the tower can be seen as a black line in the air, and when you stand close and look up along the building’s glass facade covered in black slats, you feel almost dizzy. In Copenhagen 20 storeys are still a lot.
Looking at it from the outside the slats cause subtle colour changes in the facade when you walk past Ferring. The flooring in the building’s foyer is practically identical to that of the open space outside and is only delimited by large windows. The building consists of 2 parts. Ferring’s laboratories are placed in a 3-storey building, closed round 2 green garden spaces. The laboratories face west, away from the busy crowds round the Metro and Field’s. The transparent tower of glass and black aluminium slats contains administration offices.

“As the name suggests, VM Husene (VM Buildings) are shaped like the letters V and M when viewed from the air. The buildings represent the architects’ vision of how to provide optimal light and views for the largest number of residents within the confines of a limited space and at relatively low costs. The 4- to 12-storey buildings are constructed of concrete, steel and extensive glass facades. The V Building has 40 and the M Building 36 different types of flats, most extending over several levels.
Most people first notice the pointed, triangular balconies jutting out from the facades of the V Building like sharp spikes. The south-facing balconies were designed not to impede light to the flats below. To keep construction costs down and to provide the most light possible for every unit, there are no partition walls in the flats, some of which have floor to ceiling heights of 5 metres. Instead residents can erect partitions to suit their individual needs. The V Building is raised on 5 metre high columns to let light into the northern courtyard.

“ Suburbs and typical areas with single-family houses clearly served as a source of inspiration for Bjerget (the Mountain), standing immediately next to the elevated Metro tracks in Ørestad City. The award-winning residential complex was built as a number of individual plots stacked on top of one another, cascading down a mountain slope where the roof of one flat is the garden of the one above. A gigantic parking area in striking colours inside the Mountain gives residents direct access to their homes, while people in the neighbourhood avoid a parking lot.
The building was made for modern people who wish to combine the splendours of the suburban backyard with the social intensity of urban density. The suburban style is further highlighted by the building’s position on the site, with all terraces facing towards the old single-family housing district on Western Amager. Thus the view from the Mountain is of back gardens. On the other side of the Mountain, the style is not suburban, but a futuristic urban scene featuring the elevated Metro tracks and new, contemporary residential properties in Ørestad City.

""Futuristic imagination!" This is what the sales literature says about Metropolis, a 40-metre tall residential building. And its round shapes, radiant light-blue colour and organic look make the description pretty apt. The building is surrounded by water on 3 sides on Sluseholmen's outermost peninsula, which was expanded by about 2000 square metres of landfill.
Metropolis commands a distinctive, yet solitary position opposite the rows of new housing blocks and the snug little Valby Boat club lining the waterfront on Sluseholmen. A long gravelled path leads to this curious edifice and continues all the way around the outside along the edge of the water. With its basement parking, the building has a strong aesthetic character, though still somewhat enclosed within itself. An image that may change, though, when a new public harbour lido is established at its foot in a few years.
