Fredericia C – Temporary park

SLA: FredericiaC is an urban development project in the urban harbor in Fredericia, developed in partnership between Fredericia and Realdania City. The landscape project is created by the Copenhagen design studio SLA. The project transforms a 14-hectare empty former industrial area into a temporary, recreational landscape that is integrated in the strategic, long-term urban development through the method process urbanism.


The landscape project uses nature’s processes in the urban development to create natural climate adaptation, great citizen engagement, economic added value and a clear local and historical identity in the new district even before the first ground is broken. FredericiaC opened the temporary area to the city in 2010. The first stages of FredericiaC are now being planned and it is expected that the development can commence in 2014.
