Harbor Bath
Udforske Vandet is a project I worked on while studying in Copenhagen, Denmark. Copenhagen is famous for their year round playful bathing spaces. All age groups are welcome to experience the integrative social space. This project is located in the neighborhood of Nokken. The Denmark community is made of quaint houses surrounded by gardens and large trees.

PUBLIC WATERFRONT ENGAGEMENT
Copenhagen is famous for their year round playful bathing spaces. All age groups are welcome to experience the integrative social space. The concept for this project was focused on educating visitors on the current status of the water. Copenhagen is known for having the largest supply of healthy waterways and many younger residents have forgotten how polluted the waterways were in the past. The project’s title, ”Udforsket Vandet,” means, ”explore the water,” in Danish. The design pushes each person to change their viewpoints of the water. When exploring the bath, one becomes eye level with the water, walks at the waters edge, and also walkways a story above the water.
