Henrik Ulsfort speaks on temporary architecture at Byens Ejendom Nordhavn Conference

Last Friday, MUTOPIA’s Henrik Ulsfort gave a talk on new means of supporting bottom up urban development at Byens Ejendom Conference on the development of Nordhavnen. The current industrial Nordhavnen harbour of Copenhagen is in the process of being transformed into a new neighbourhood with a total capacity of 3.5 million square meters mixed residential and commercial programme, which will create space for 40.000 inhabitants and 40.000 work spaces by 2060.


MUTOPIA has developed a concept for kick-starting the development of unused sites by means of temporary activities aimed at providing exciting opportunities for urban life based on the unfolding of existing qualities of the urban context such as accessibility, history, location and existing activities.

A temporary hotel of customizable prefab modular units will provide much needed and highly attractive lodging and service space to support the activities of Culture Docken, a former salt warehouse which has become a popular culture venue since 2006 by providing a spectacular site for conferences, theatre, concerts, exhibitions as well as corporate events.


The first units have been constructed, and will soon be assembled on-site.


Byens Ejendom (The City’s Property) is the largest provider of information on urban development in Denmark.
