Special Recognition awarded for Copenhagen's focus on improving the infrastructure for cyclists and pedestrians
The Jury has decided to create a special category in order to recognise the public policies introduced and supported by the city of Copenhagen.
It hopes in this way to draw attention to its determination and persistence in reconquering public space from private vehicles, which formerly overran it, so that it can be used by pedestrians and cyclists. All of these policies are the result of a commitment to ensure that a good quality of urban life is available for everyone. This resolve is now patent in the considerable number of interventions supported by the metropolitan area of Copenhagen among the 25 finalists in this most recent award of the Prize - among those Cykelslangen, designed by DISSING+WEITLING architecture.
