Amager Nature Park in Ørestad is a unique piece of nature very close to Copenhagen. Not even half of the citizens in Copenhagen have been to this area and a partnership of Naturstyrelsen, By & Havn and three municipalities wanted to make the area more accessible.
The proposal is a vision of bridging between city and nature, between landscape and water and to tell the story about the formation of the land. We created seven site-specific landmarks that could bring the visitor closer to an understanding of the nature.
The bridge is a motive that creates connections and passages between stages and places. Every nature bridge is an elevated path, a ramp, a stair, a platform on the water or land, a roof for shelter, a bird watching tower or a viewing platform.
These timber constructions are remarkable yet light foot prints in Amager Nature Park, which is partly protected and a place for sensitive nature that should stay as untouched as possible but make way for unique nature experiences.
Like the nature, these bridges are changeable, and the light constructions are easily disassembled, relocated or removed and the terrain can pass freely under the bridges that enhance the landscape in recognizable objects.
The design competition focused on three main entrances and four new facilities along the coast. We designed the project together with Spektrum Arkitekter, Niras and Økologi & Bærekraft.
