SLA Architects released a design for a Copenhagen-based year-round ski slope that will sit atop the new Amager Bakke Waste-To-Energy plant. The facility's wedge-like shape makes its roof the perfect location for a large public park that will incorporate hiking trails, climbing walls, viewpoints, as well as a 600-meter long ski slope. Individuals, who are looking for a break from the fast-paced urban environment, don't have to go far for a little reconnecting with nature. Guests are even encouraged to use seed bombs to contribute to the abundant flora and fauna on the site.
While the Amager Bakke plant will be busy "generating power by incinerating waste," the ski slope and park above will definitely engage the community with its surrounding, fostering a more green and nature-driven urban lifestyle.
