Steelscape is based on a reading of Frederiksværk’s multiple identities. The city is at once (steel) plant, landscape and city. The physical communication is grounded in the idea of the self-explanatory city, with the clear aim to make visible and activate the industrial heritage as an active tool for the development of the city.

The urban development plan brings together a number of new strategies / interventions at different scales. Simple architectural interventions, in a combining of conservation and future proposals, create the basis for a merge of cultural heritage, the unique landscapes and everyday life. The urban plan identifies a number of strategies and specific urban key locations that are developed with a focus on local ownership and responsibility, recreational qualities and the city’s unique industrial heritage.
