The project in Klitmøller is part of a larger plan for ‘The good life at the sea’ in north Jutland. The plan includes projects for Klitmøller, Nørre Vorupør and Krik, all smaller coast and fjord cities. The projects are located at a place in Denmark where you can feel the nature and climate has great power. This has been the premises for inhabiting this place, and the connection to the sea has given the small cities their livelihood in form of fishing. Now the fishing industry is much decreased and the cities are now in a new era with focus on tourism. One of the great new attractions is windsurfing, and the area is being called cold Hawaii, because of its excellent location for wind and waves.

SixtyNine Seventy invites design teams from around the world to re-envision the circulation areas and passages of two blocks in Salt Lake City’s downtown. The entrants will prepare comprehensive ideas for these in-between spaces, developing them into the connective tissue linking the area’s cultural amenities.
Salt Lake City boasts a stunning natural setting, numerous cultural amenities, a unique history, a vibrant retail core, and a thriving and diverse business community. Currently, it lacks connection between many of these elements. The design competition seeks to harness ideas from around the world that will activate the spaces between with creativity deeply rooted in the city’s rich context. We hope new ideas will act as a catalyst for design-led growth downtown, helping redefine blocks sixty-nine and seventy, and the evolution of Salt Lake City as a whole. We want the fabric, textures, and essence of this city to create an energy that gives back to all who engage it.
