Loop City: Developing World Class Infrastructure In The Suburbs Of Denmark
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.
