World Landscape Architecture is a globally recognized ‘webzine’ and they honoured ‘The Soul of Nørrebro’ for being a best practice example on providing climate adaptation and resiliency while adding social and recreational value.

The project centres on the renewal and climate adaptation of Hans Tavsens Park and Korsgade in Inner Nørrebro in Copenhagen. The 140 million DKK (20 million US Dollars) urban space project will be a flagship example of how cities can deal with cloudbursts in dense inner city neighbourhoods while adding unique social, cultural and natural values to increase the life quality of its residents.

Last year, the project beat out 145 entries from the Nordics and won Scandinavia’s largest and most ambitious architecture competition regarding sustainable urban development, Nordic Built Cities Challenge.
