Toftegrds Plads Syd (Toftegrd Square South) in Copenhagen, Denmark has remained largely unused for several years. In its current form, it far from reflects the fact that it is one of the most important and most distinctive gateways to Copenhagen. The City of Copenhagen has therefore decided to launch a competition to obtain ideas for the creation of a lively, human and vibrant urban space of high architectural quality. Entrants in the competition may also include proposals for new buildings, various types of coverings and other structures in the square. The new square must be part of the ongoing development that will turn the southern part of the Valby district into one of the most interesting areas in Copenhagen.
Architects, landscape architects and urban designers are eligible to enter. April 1, 2008 is the deadline for questions, and May 14, 2008 is the deadline for submissions. 750,000 DKK or roughly $148,000 CDN will be awarded.
Registration is not required to submit entries in Danish design competitions. You will be registered as a participant when you ask for the annexes to the competition brief.
