Topotek1 present Superkilen


This morning Martin Rein-Cano gave a lecture on public space at the Garden Museum. The lecture sponsored by the European Commission was part of a day of presentations discussing delightful cities.

Rein-Cano presented Topotek1‘s project in Copenhagen, titled Superkilen. The expansive public space attempts to ’emancipate’ ideas of migration by collaborating with the surrounding communities to insert features from their home countries. What is achieved is an arresting array of images, signs and recollections that challenge the users perception of space, scale and place.
