Kroyers Plads Seed is a conceptual proposal for a public space and structure that cultivate social interaction and agriculture on the waterfront of Copenhagen's inner harbor.
Kroyers Plads is near destinations like Noma and Det Kongelige Teater, yet devoid of accomidations for residents.
To inform the public space I explored connections and circulation around Kroyers Plads. First finding the site could use a stronger link between the harbour and the canal and a more pronounced and accomidating edge along the waterfronts.
Simulataneously, I thought about the building's footprint and relation to the site. The final footprint is highly porus to encourage waterfront use while providing shelter.
The proposed waterfront provides residential and mixed use accomidations, vertical agriculture, increases canopy cover, and allows pedestrians access to swim.
As seasons change on the waterfront public activities can shift from exterior to interior spaces.
As people interact on multiple levels, atop sits the greenhouse structure. Inside produce is grown for CSA subscribers.
