Skies and Machines

We went to Nordhavn to enjoy the waterfront but fell in love with skies and machines instead ūüôā
To make room for Copenhagen’s development, City & Port will expand 100 hectares over the next 20 years. City & Port receives soil for the expansion of Nordhavn.

Diversity

It has been a unique place to explore once. Old hulls, small wooden houses, giant cranes between towering container stacks and sand piles as high as mountains.
Old chairs and sofas forgotten by their owners stood deserted and alluring with empty seats. Small coves with construction waste taken over by the most beautiful flowers and grasses. There were many great fishing spots, where a folding chair could be used along with a packed lunch and a good cup of coffee.

There are still a small area with small wooden houses where people pursuits with their boats and flowers or repairs of a weather vane.
But I recognize a difference. Small improvised roadblocks pop up like dandelions in asphalt, so that curious urban residents don’t disturb the quietness¬†that still exist in the area.
They are almost gone the intriguing places, and what is left is fenced … and yet, out there where a large cruise ship docks, here’s still cozy activities.

Fiskeri og Badning i Nordhavn

L√¶nge leve mangfoldigheden ‚̧

Det har v√¶ret et unikt sted at udforske en gang. Gamle skibsskrog, sm√• tr√¶huse, gigantiske kraner mellem t√•rnh√łje container stakke og sand bunker s√• h√łje som bjerge.

Gamle stole og sofaer glemt af deres ejere stod √łde og dragende med tomme pladser. Sm√• vige med byggeaffald overtaget af smukke blomster, gr√¶sser og bl√•t hav. Overalt var der gode fiskesteder, hvor en klapstol kunne ‘indtages’ sammen med frokosten og en god kop kaffe.
Der er stadig et lille omr√•de med sm√• tr√¶huse, hvor folk sysler med deres b√•de og blomster, eller reparerer en vejrhane. Men jeg opdager en forskel. Sm√• improviserede vejsp√¶rringer popper op som m√¶lkeb√łtter i asfalt, s√• nysgerrige byboere ikke forstyrrer den smule fred, der stadig eksisterer i omr√•det.
De er n√¶sten v√¶k de sp√¶ndende steder, og hvad der er tilbage er indhegnet … og alligevel, derude, hvor et stort krydstogtskib ligger til kaj, her er stadigv√¶k hyggelige og sjove aktiviteter.
