Copenhagen - Denmark has decided to build a mini city just for kids. The Prinsessegade Kindergarten and Youth Club is expected to be completed by 2014. It will be located in Copenhagen, Denmark's capital city.
According to PSFK, some of the world's best and brightest architects were asked to present their most "creative and innovative ideas" for the all-kids mini city. The architectural firms chosen were COBE and NORD. They will be joined by landscape architects PK3 and Grontmij.
The mini city will include neighborhoods, houses, parks, a solar-powered concert hall, a restaurant with a rooftop greenhouse, and a fire station, Curbed reports.
Prinsessegade Kindergarten will also have a learning, daycare, and fun center that will accomodate 618 children, Architizer reports.
This children's dreamland will add to the growth of a line of architecture made just for kids.
The city will allow kids and young adults to do absolutely anything they want to, PSFK reports.They will have everything they need to have fun, but stay safe.
According to Architizer, Prinssessegade Kindergarten will be located right in the center of Copenhagen and will use the area's trees "to create shared green space within the city."
The goal of the city is for kids and young adults to become more aware of their own interests and future endeavors in life. It is also being designed to teach Denmark's youth about city living. It will give kids creative freedom and confidence to go after their dreams and gain independence.
It is estimated that by the year 2025, Copenhagen will have 90,000 more inhabitants than it does now. 22,000 of the city's new inhabitants will be under 18, PSFK reports. The main purpose behind Prinsessesegade Kindergarten and Youth Club was originally to deal with this influx of youth, but it will also provide children and young adults with so many amazing opportunities.
