Karen Blixens Plads
by Cobe

Rasmus Hjortshøj

Karen Blixens Plads is an undulating public plaza with sheltered parking for bicycles designed by COBE in Copenhagen.

The plaza is one of the biggest public squares in Copenhagen and has room for more than 2,000 parked bicycles.

The square has a unique undulating landscape with hollow bicycle hills and low beds, creating a new and innovative way to park bicycles.

The open and welcoming urban space is an innovative and multi-functional design that accommodates and promotes green transportation, climate change adaptation and biodiversity.


This project has been longlisted in the landscape project category of Dezeen Awards 2020.
