WATCH FLOWER BY BJARKE INGELS



01-Watch-Flower-by-Bjarke-Ingels

Watch Flower is created as a three dimensional promenade that floats in the space above the harbor edge and the water at DOCK 7 in Aarhus Harbor.
 
02-Watch-Flower-by-Bjarke-Ingels

A 155 m long sloping promenade meanders like a mountain path along a cliff side peaking at the height of 7.5 meters.

Designed with handicap accessibility, head clearance and statics in mind, the promenade takes shape as a flower gradually growing from the concrete harbor edge towards the sky.

Each turn offers a new viewpoint with unique views to Aarhus Cathedral, the historical city centre, the leisure harbor and the Aarhus bay area.

At the same time the experience of going from the harbor edge to the viewpoints becomes a three dimensional journey of discovery about the meeting between city and bay, land and water.
