crosspoint through movements
Thors Bakker was an enclosed area downtown of Randers. We carve out an urban strategy bringing life into the area by interaction to its surroundings.
Our output includes a new identity to Thor Bakker based on its location as the highest point in the city, cultural history and listed buildings as the Court House, former Brewery and Dragon Regiment. Placemaking Thor Bakker as an important hub and crosspoint between its neighborhood and the avenue Østervold.
We present various sketches as urban examples of different values, possibilities and objectives.
