Icebergs may soon be a thing of the past, but tell that to the designers of this “Iceberg” housing project that just won a competition to build a housing complex at the Aarhus docklands development in Denmark. Architects Julien de Smedt and CEBRA architects in collaboration with Louis Paillard and SeArch have dreamed up this future community due for completion in 2010. Comprising of over 200 apartments and a variety of shops, cultural and social activities and ample workplaces. By remaining below the maximum heights at points and emerging above the dotted line at other moments. “Peaks” and “canyons” form; eliciting the project’s strength while ensuring that all apartment will be supplied with a generous amount of natural lighting and waterfront views. With the global change growing exponentially, waterfront views may be in all our futures.
