Focused on art, culture and creativity, Musicon is not a traditional city development. Located in Roskilde, half an hour from Copenhagen, the new city district aims to be a national centre for everyone who needs untraditional settings to develop new projects and ideas. Ever since Roskilde city bought the old concrete factory, Unicon, in 2003, the ambition has been to explore alternative approaches to city planning. For this reason, a typical masterplan for the 250,000-square-metre plot was never developed. Instead, the idea was to develop the city step by step in constant dialogue with potential and current users and residents as well as the architects capable of realising its physical structure.
