SUPERKILEN. A Project by Big, Topotek 1, Superflex

Danish architects BIG (Bjarke Ingels Group), artist collaboration Superflex and landscape architects Topotek 1 have transformed an urban park in one of the most ethnically diverse and socially challenging neighbourhoods in Denmark into a vehicle for integration that reinforces local sentiments of ownership, while turning public participation into a driving force of design. Completed in 2012, Superkilen is a kilometre-long park filled with global objects sourced from 60 different countries – representing the 60 nationalities of the people from the neighbourhood around he park – ranging from exercise gear from muscle beach LA to sewage drains from Israel, palm trees from China and neon signs from Qatar and Russia.
