Vasbyhave is a park located in Jernbanebyen, a former rail yard area currently being transformed into a green and thriving neighbourhood.
One of the most powerful tools for public health intervention is green, public space. One of the integral green, public spaces in the first area to be developed is Vasbyhave – a one-hectare park in the first phase of the development. The park represents an incredible opportunity to test health interventions at the neighbourhood scale.
Through this competition, we invite you to provide your best ideas on how the park can prevent and promote health for the residents and visitors of the area. We are seeking ideas on how the park can promote healthier living for the diverse groups of people who will be using the park and living in the surrounding area with a special focus on intergenerational uses.
Our focus is not only on people but also on the planet, which is why we are also seeking inputs that focus on creating the foundation for promoting planetary health through measures such as climate adaptation and the development of biodiverse ecosystems.
Approx. size of area:
- The park itself is one hectare but is a part of the 9-hectare first phase of the development.
- The park connects to a two-hectare park, Lokomotivskoven, on the other side of a bridge that connects the North and South of the area.
- The park is located within the first phase of the development, a mixed, community-oriented neighbourhood with diverse housing options and integrated education, play, work and healthy food options.
Priority areas & main expectations:
Three specific priorities apply to the design of the park, but overall, it is expected that the park be programmed in a way that promotes the health of both people and the planet.
The design should furthermore focus on the diverse user groups, creating intergenerational meeting points, and enhancing inclusivity. Additionally, the park should boost climate resilience through adaptation measures and biodiversity while also taking its connection to the wider city into account.
