Abstract

Within the theme of the conference Design. The urban project between city and nature the proposed contribution assumes the relationship between city and nature as an essential basis for the urban project. Within this general idea, the construction of residential units of dimensions that conform to human needs, conceived as constitutive elements of the city, is intended as a tool for the definition of an idea of a city made of morphologically finished parts, in which the natural fact becomes a real green infrastructure, which contains public spaces, communication and mobility infrastructures, parks, leisure facilities and agricultural land; in it we can trace the element of order and connection capable of reactivating structuring and constitutive synapses between heterogeneous urban parts. These issues will be developed with reference to the case study of the city of Copenhagen in Denmark. Here the Regional Plan of the Five Fingers, approved in 1949 and based on an infrastructural network and green spaces connecting fingers the axes of urban development as a strategy to control the city and its growth, has demonstrated the effectiveness of the natural connective space between the built spaces for the reorganization of urban relations on a regional scale. Along the coast overlooking the Øresund, the three residential complexes Bellavista, Søholm and Ved Bellevue Bugt and public facilities (theater, restaurant and seaside establishment) designed by Arne Jacobsen in an area between the Bellevue beach to the east and the Deer Park and the railway line to the west, but also the civic center (library and town hall) and the housing builings designed in Rødovre, along the north-west direction, form urban parts expressions of a coherent and city-oriented planning where the constitutive relationship with nature is the central reason.
