The team approached verticality in the city in an almost metaphorical way – making an analogy between housing in sky scrapers and social classes. Assuming that wealthy people live higher up (e.g. in penthouses), we enacted a role-play on location, seeking inspiration in one of Copenhagen’s newest housing projects.

In an attempt to transform people’s perception of verticality, the team undertook an extensive investigation process including physical prototypes, flash animations and graphical visualisations.
