Dense-low

From Appropedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The Danish dense-low tradition of housing is one of no high rise apartments but rather houses of two and three stories, clustered around shared courtyards and open space. There is little emphasis on separated single-family homes.

With a population density of around 35 people per hectare this is lower than the development in most European cities, but much more compact than Auto City suburbs which are approximately 10 people per hectare.

Questions[edit]

  • This was in existence in the 1960s, but when did it begin?[Suggested project]
  • What are the cultural factors that led to this kind of development, as opposed to suburban sprawl or high rise?
