An ambitious project aimed at ushering urbanity in the cross border region of Denmark.

As part of the 2010 Venice Biennale, the Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) exhibited its ambitious project called “Loop City”, a new Metro system that they hope will transform the cross border area between Sweden and Denmark into a model region by developing infrastructure for public transport, electric cars and energy exchange around all its stations.

Archdaily has more on the Loop City project:

The project will serve as the new sustainable model for the area as it will implement strategies for energy exchange, waste management, water treatment and electric car stations.  ”At certain points the rail becomes a building itself almost like a Roman aqueduct passing through the suburbs, at other points it forms small pockets of urbanity around the stations,” explained BIG.

The proposed new light rail will create a new 50 year development perspective for a cross border region between Sweden and Denmark. Where the Finger Plan from 1947 was about connectivity from suburb to center the Loop City is linking a string of highly differentiated urban nodes, universities and working spaces in a center-less metropolitan region around a blue void. This ring, comparable in size to the San Francisco Bay area, has enough development areas to contain the growth of the region the next 50 years, and could become a model for a both sustainable, dense and super recreational development of the region.
