Turn Right on Red

Copenhagen's theme park with a twist
Here is a story with the ingredients of a fairytale. Architects team up with an artist and design a park that includes all the desires of the people who live in the surrounding neighbourhoods. Not only that but the people concerned are not the native majority, they are the immigrant minorities of the area. Flying in the face of earlier disagreements between the Muslims and the Danish state, the making of this park is a statement and a lesson in politics, rolled into one.
