History of Superkilen Park in 1 Minute

Aliki Seferou

Located in the heart of Nørrebro, Superkilen park was built to demonstrate the cultural diversity that characterizes the neighborhood. The one kilometer-long park is separated into three areas: the Red Square, the Black Market, and the Green Park; each of them with its own decoration and style, featuring objects of approximately 60 nationalities from all over the world.

The Red Square is the part you see first when walking on Nørrebrogade, Nørrebro’s main street. Painted in red, orange and pink, with a Russian neon sign standing in the middle and a long line of Iraqi swings running across the square, this section welcomes its guests to a cultural trip.

Right behind the Red Square stretches the Black Market, which is decorated with palm trees – an exotic brushstroke on the district’s urbanscape. A Moroccan fountain gives a taste of North Africa, while a bench from Turkey travels passers-by to Western Asia.

Finally, visitors will find the Green Park, which looks nothing like the two previous sections, which have an industrial design. The green area of the park hosts a number of sports facilities and is the section locals choose to have a picnic on a sunny day, or practice their skills at the Spanish ping-pong tables.

BIG Architects, Topotek 1 and Superflex are the companies behind the idea and the design of Superkilen. Their goal was not only to create a beautiful urban space for locals, but also to promote and exhibit the city’s cultural diversity. Indeed, Superkilen has become one of the city’s favorite hangouts. On hot, sunny days you’ll see skaters doing tricks, children playing at the Indian climbing playground, and chess players battling wits in the shadow of Japanese cherry trees.
