Public Life - Public Space Survey & Strategies

Nørrebrogade is a hectic two-kilometer main street in the densest and most ethnically diverse part of Copenhagen, with high numbers of buses slowly winding their way through the traffic. A municipal initiative to improve bus access led to the involvement of Gehl Architects to take a broader look at the potentials of the street. The proposal includes a conversion into a mainly bus-cycle-pedestrian street with a range of smaller public spaces and recreational breaks along the entire street, thereby making it more pleasant for the many users, not least the more than 30.000 cyclists passing daily.
