On 2nd July 2011 Frederiksberg experienced an extreme rainfall event, both in regards of volume and intensity. The event caused damaging floods to the neighbourhood. It is expected that the frequency of theses extreme events will significantly increase due to climate change.
▼公园概貌，an overview of Lindevangs Park
The project Lindevangs Park and Sløyfen is based on the desire to disconnect and retain rainwater in the park to avoid overloading the vulnerable lower surrounding areas. The project starts in the existing park, Lindevangs Park where new elements are designed with a double function, particularly with focus towards children’s play and activities. There is a communal city garden with black current bushes and apple trees where residents of the surrounding areas can pick edible fruits and berries. The open grass area has a gentle bowl-shaped character with a semi-circular bench that is used as a scene for dance and theatrical performances, martial arts, scooters and roller skaters.

An urban square named Sløjfen is situated in the south-eastern part of the park. With inspiration from the former tram loop, water is collected and led in a grand movement based on Fibonacci´s spiral geometry. The almost 80-meter long spiral shaped water wall can be used as an educational element for the study of number sequences, the golden section, exponential systems, theories about nature´s constructions and systems from micro to macro cosmos.

There is a large water detention basin established under the paving at Sløjfen, that together with the landscaped terrain can hold 700m3 of water. The cloud burst elements combine both climate adaption solutions with new activities and experiences in the park, while at the same time tell the story of water that runs through the park.

Water in the city is mysterious and surprising; it is lead in the underground pipes, it suddenly appears, is pumped up, disappears again and then it over flows unexpectedly. Lindevangs Park is driven by this exact mind set; water has no logic or visible cohesion in the city, but when it appears it can be a surprising element. One can measure it, and use the knowledge in a positive way. Water is a centrum that creates new cultural life and encourages different activities in an urban context.
