Nørresundby Urban Garden

City Garden has come to life as a radical transformation of the small public garden in Nørresundby. The urban space is located near the sea and between its organic asphalt surfaces, meter high water jets jumps as were they artificial geysers. The water collects in small puddles in where the movement of clouds in the sky are reflected. Between the asphalt surfaces are paths covered with glossy blue mussel shells and in the dense planting vaporizers, that emit fine water vapor, has been placed.  Eventful spatialities give space for children to share sensuous experiences. As an enthusiastic offer Nørresundby Urban Garden is a concentrate of events and amenity.
