Copenhagen's Kiddie City is Urban Shangri-La for Little People

by Yasha Wallin

November 20, 2012


When it is complete in 2014, Prinsessegade will be the largest daycare center in Denmark. It will feature different neighborhoods for different age groups, houses, public spaces, squares, parks, even a city hall, fire station, stadium, and factory. The heart of Kids' City will be a shared, outdoor green area with outdoor activities.

 

According to the architects:

The size and diversity of the Kids’ City means that everybody – children and young people as well as their parents – will feel at home. There’s room for the wild kids, the quiet kids, for the kids who like to draw and paint, the roleplayers, the ones who play in the sandbox, the ones that race down the mountain in mooncars and those who like to bake cookies in the kitchen. There’s room for the ones performing a musical in the city hall, the ones tinkering with their mopeds, the ones playing street basket in the cage and the ones kissing behind the bike shed.
