Godsbanearealet Urban space and climate adaption, Aalborg

Our vision for the masterplan of Godsbanearealet, Aalborg is to transform the abandoned industrial landscape of the disused railway goods-yard into a sustainable and green part of the city. The design takes its inspiration from the robust and sturdy structures of the railway infrastructure, creating a transitional space between the old medieval town and the city’s suburbs.

Godsbanearealet encompasses both an urban masterplan and recreational areas, with a particular focus paid to designing for climate adaption and long term sustainability. The open spaces are turned into a recreational landscape which, while being beautiful, will also absorb future rain downpour challenges. The goal is to manage as large a volume of water as possible locally, minimizing rain water run off through establishing green roofs, and by use of percolation and storage in waterbeds and basins around the site.
