Prisen går til Alexander Hejgaard Fagerholt for projektet In Between Typologies – The Future Challenges of Refshaleøen.
Projektet spørger, om vi designer på baggrund af markedskræfterne eller for at facilitere byliv og dernæst om vi kan forene de to hensyn? Juryen skriver:
“The resulting project is at once rigorous and playful in its expression. A piece of infrastructure as well as a social and cultural destination, the building will transform itself with the seasons, with the changing currents of the water, or society. It manages to be simultaneously permanent and temporary, thereby posing important questions into the qualities of temporal and how much – or little – building one can get away with to make a measurable impact in an urban environment. Deeply contextual, one can imagine that if it were to be built, it would be hard to question whether it had not been there from the start.”
Legatet går ligeledes til Alexander Hejgaard Fagerholt. Juryen skriver:
“The winning project investigates today’s redevelopment of our cities’ central industrial areas. On the broader scale, it is an experiment of private ownership and public urban life. It challenges development controlled by market forces and suggests a new type of development inspired by urban life.
The project cleverly analyses the way the area has developed over time and gives the potential for building on top of this unique and strong industrial character. The area challenges traditional building typologies by giving the old industrial buildings a new use.”
