This thesis seeks to explore a nature-based approach to manage contemporary demographic changes and climatic challenges in a strategy and physical design located in Jammerbugt.
Urbanization and political structural reforms have increased demographic shifts from rural to urban. Recently, the term double-urbanization was introduced to the Danish planning debate addressing internal demographic changes in municipalities thus revealing that growth and shrinkage occur across scales globally and locally. Furthermore this reveals growth in some rural municipalities otherwise denoted as “the outskirts” thus potentials for development.

The site for this thesis is Jammerbugt Municipality a place with unique qualities, breathtaking nature, communities and stories waiting to be told. However the place is challenged by increased water level predicted to rise 1m towards 2100 thereby changing the geography of Jammerbugt.

Through analysis, imagined scenarios and strategy, the thesis aims to accommodate changes related to urbanization in Jammerbugt Municipality thus utilize the potentials of internal demographic shifts and enhance nature to reestablishment relations between the built, the grown and humans.

A physical design, the Fjord Center, is created to manifest the narrative of unique grown environments in Jammerbugt and reconnect humans hereto. Furthermore, the design is located on the future edge between land and water caused by raised sea water levels. Visitors can experience, examine and learn about nature, the Limfjord and climate challenges. The physical design is created to establish an understanding of a common future for everyone; a sustainable future.
