A new Danish recycling center by BIG is an innovative new concept that will see the Sydhavns Recycling Center become an important community asset. The recycling center by BIG, which is based out of Copenhagen and New York, will include fitness facilities, outdoor recreational space and a track.

The beautiful recycling center will be submerged under a luscious green hill and will also have a "recycling square" where patrons can take a peak at the process.

The creative process from which the Sydhavns Recycling Center was born will be showcased as a part of BIG's current Hot to Cold exhibit at the National Building Museum in Washington, DC.

This unique neighborhood addition is a fascinating look at the ways in which urban planning can encourage the view of cities as "integrated man-made ecosystems."
