Copenhagen is about to get itself a new place called the Red Square. As opposed to its famous pendant in Moscow, the one in Copenhagen is red, literally.

The square is painted in red tones and in rectangular shapes. When viewed from above, it looks like a three-dimensional skewed shape.

The square is a part of the urban park 'Superkilen', a long stretch which also contains a green and a black zone. Each zone facilitates different activities.

Ping-Pong tables from Spain

Benches from Kuwait

Signage from Russia

Playground from Japan

Bike racks from Norway

Superkilen is located in Nørrebro (north-west), a multicultural part of Copenhagen with 60 different nationalities represented. To reflect the community, the park will be furnished with elements like benches, bins, trees, playgrounds, ping-pong tables, lamp-posts and signage - all imported from 60 different countries.

Superkilen is created by Superflex, (BIG) Bjarke Ingels Group and TOPOTEK1.
