This project is about integration. It seeks to integrate all aspects of city life in a gathered environment: apartments, offices, shopping, childcare, sports facilities, cultural institutions and a mosque. It seeks to facilitate the cultural integration of Islamic and Danish culture, by incorporating the first mosque to be ever built in Denmark in the center of the complex. It seeks to bring together the three disjoint quarters of Islands Brygge, Amagerbro and Ørestaden, in an overlapping urban activity centre. Finally it seeks to fuse landscape, architecture, the built and the un-built environment into a unified urban topography of man made mountains, valleys, cliffs and caves.
