- Kopenhag - Denmark
In 1963, inspired by Carl Theodor Sørensen’s illustrious modernist garden project ‘Runde haver’ in Nærum (1948-52), the municipality of Brøndby, together with commissioned landscape architect Erik Mygind, decided to draw up plans for a community allotment garden arranged in 12 circular units (rotunder), sub-divided into seven (afd. I, II, III, IV, V/VI (Rosen) and VII) allotment associations, with each of the 284 allotments occupying a wedge-shaped plot of approximately 400 sqm, including an allowed total building area of <50 sqm. The original plan, finally decided, and allocated a 30 year holding permission, in June (12th) 1964 at a General Assembly in 'Folkets Hus', was supplemented with a similarly sized and shaped garden across the road. At the inauguration a start up kit consisting of trees and shrubs were distributed into every allotment, hawthorn and beech plants were used to establish the surrounding hedges, and around the grass and gravel covered centre place cherry trees and currant bushes were added. The resulting spaces in between the circular allotment units were dedicated to communal premises and activities.
The intentions behind the formal(istic) configuration of the area was to mimic traditional socio-spatial patterns from Danish villages, using the centre/middle as a focal point for gossip, news and social interchange. To create a private-public gradient in the plot, and to accommodate for sufficient lighting conditions in its narrow end, the bordering hedges were slanted (from 80 to 180 cm in height) towards the middle – now used mostly for parking purposes
