(280) Grow your city with a Vækstzonen

Nykobing FalsterA Danish architecture office has found some success turning a weakness into a strength.  An edible landscape converts the low intensity land uses of a post-industrial, suburban area into a rather inspiring tool of integration and enhancement. Lolland-Falster are islands immediately west of Nykøbing Falster, a regional capital with just over 16,000 people.  By expanding in this direction an opportunity to embrace the coastal, urban, historical and agricultural has presented itself.  Very nice!
