Our proposal on how to protect Dragør and its 13 km coastline, “Sådan Ligger Landet”, builds upon the unique cultural heritage of Dragør. It aims not only to protect the citizens of Dragør, but to strengthen and communicate the specific identity, history and authenticity of Dragør – the flat land, the worthy of preservation harbour and town and the closeness to the sea and the horizon. 

The proposal seeks to enhance security and the main concept is to gently integrate protection into the existing landscape and the cultural heritage of Dragør harbour and town. 

The idea is to strengthen and develop elements that are already there and characteristic of the area. In the landscape for example by improvements of the dikes and at the harbour by increased hights of bulwarks and slipways, not solely as a discrete protection against the sea, but also to provide citizens and visitors with new informal places to meet. 

The proposal includes a plan on how to gradually extend the level of protection and adjust to changes – without losing the closeness to water and horizon.
Same approach have been used by our studio in previous coastal protection project for Roskilde Municipality.
