The Kockum landfilling, or as you call it, the sand is left. Our Nordhavnen concept is made on such a landfill, now partly full of waste and toxins – a dump so to speak. May be so in the western harbour to? You ask what is the next challenge between sea and land at the western harbour. A search in a larger geographical scale on the net and in your library would have opend at least comparative knowledge from other cities by the sea. For many years this kind of transition of industrial sites from one state to another has been the urban sport nr 1, boosting new city brands and profiles. BO01 in Malmø is such an example. Our Nordhavnen concept reformulated such a traditional, offensive transformation with urban ideals and ideal lifeforms, and launched instead a concept in a permanent dialogue with the changing seascape. A terminology on behalf of the landscape and seascape.
I don’t know Malmös plans and strategies along the coast. But a do know that Christer Larsson, Stadsbygnadsdirektøren, has been introducing an archipelago in front of Malmö relating to changed sea levels. To your question of what destroys the sea as a living biotope:
When you ask such a question you should go behind it and speculate more openly with yourself. The relation between agriculture, plowing, rivers and Øresundet is, as all over the world, a main poluter. Now introducing International Coastal Management – a path to follow to gain new knowledge on the future of the seascape and bottom.
In your Emerging Students blog it would have been fine if you could have come up with some thoughts on Malmö as a knowledge city. Malmö lies between Lund and Copenhagen, and is part of a web of research and teaching. Challenge your own questioning.
