Epicenters - Shortlisted
In order to make Islev area attractive for people to live, work, and socialize it is proposed that the district’s current center is extended and sided by new retail, leisure and housing program that ensure its activation until late hours. Its new dimensions bring the local square closer to the light railway station. Each of the 5 sub areas of the site is given a distinctive complementary programmatic character. Three types of programmatic anchor points are distributed in the area to organize and distribute collective activities; iconic buildings, playgrounds and light structures and events. The iconic buildings at focal perspective points offer a strong counterpart to Rødovre Centrum, whose spatial experience is on the contrary generic, concentrated, exclusive, and introvert.
