Copenhill

The waste-to-energy plant, Amager Resource Centre, also known as Copenhill, is located in an industrial area, that throughout the years, has turned into an extreme sport destination for thrill seekers. Different extreme sports activities take place in the raw industrial facilities such as cable wake boarding, go-kart racing, and rock climbing among others. The Amager Resource Center is the most significant landmark in the area and the building i in need of renewal.

We propose a new breed of waste-to-energy plant, one that is economically, environmentally, and socially profitable. Instead of considering Amager Resource Center as an isolated object, we mobilise the architecture and intensify the relationship between the building and the city - expanding the existing activities in the area by turning the roof of the new Amager Resource Centre into a ski slope for the citizens of Copenhagen.
