Demolition has started in Gellerup so probably about time to open a new thread about this interesting development. The vision is great, especially if the lightrail can be used to open up the area.
The Dispositionsplan gives a great overview of the project and includes a lot of images. Politken also ran an interesting article on the project and the hopes of the residents for a brighter future in this drab area:
This is by far the most ambitious project to date in Denmark for transforming a ghetto area. If successful it will set standards for the whole country and perhaps beyond. If not, it will not only be a catastrophe for Århus and Gellerup but for all ghetto areas in the country.En anekdote fra indvielsesdagene lyder, at arkitekten så sin kone græde ved synet af Gellerupparken og troede, hun var bevæget over byggeriets storhed. I stedet stod hun og græd, fordi stedet så »så forarmet« ud.
