Around the World in Superkilen

March 19, 2016

Superkilen is an intricate urban park broken up into three sections: Red, black and green. Designed by the artist groups, Superflex, Topotek1 and Bjarke Ingels Group, on a former rail yard, Superkilen is one of the more gorgeous green spaces in Nørrebro with 108 objects donated from 60 parts of the world.

Originally designed to celebrate diversity within Nørrebro and improve the quality of life in the area, the groups designed something unique and beautiful.

Superkilen is slightly unreal. With a glorious blue fountain from Morocco, a playground from Japan and painted stripes on the floor, minimialistically Nordic, they create a hodge-podge of cultures that don’t clash in a way that you’d expect. They compliment each other and the whole area is surreal and beautiful.

As it’s free, I would definitely recommend visiting Superkilen, especially if you’re staying in Nørrebro.
