Urban area, old Christiana gardening and bicycles in Copenhagen, Denmark
I didn't have the feeling of connection between different areas in this city. It was a bit tricky to find things, everything felt in the back of something else.
When arriving from the airport, I saw an area of new buildings, something that almost have some of the elements for a ecocity. I decided to walk there the next day, even if I didn't know what or where it was.
Even if the new area has lot of greenspots, closeness to water (bathing and boats) and a long and narrow park along the water, it felt very boring. With no people at all (because of the rain? the newish feeling, or the contruction? everyone in the mall?!), straight and lifeless squares, a lot of paths but not cosy (enough).
You can see green spots in Copenhagen, but when you walk there it hard to find it. In Christiania, for example, it's still some gardening and green spots, houses with green corners and some special apperience.
Christiania is just a remnant of what it have been. But we found some cosy spots. Small houses, small gardens and a lot of green...
I also like the bridge between the houses!
Also, this building with greens- made a special appearence of this road in Copenhagen.
