Musicon is a creative neighbourhood in Roskilde. The development of the hood is radically different from other new urban areas. Instead of a master plan that 'locks' the development in a certain track, the development takes place in close collaboration with people from the cultural and business communities as well as property developers who find it exciting to help shape the development in a dynamic and diverse neighbourhood.
One of the overall goals of Musicon is to create a permanent neighborhood with a creative profile.
At Musicon, there is great potential in utilising and activating the structures of the old industrial buildings, using the urban spaces as a test platform and shaping the future development of the neighbourhood. Art must be a co-player that is invited in to make visible and reinforce the area's creative identity.
Art, creative expression and temporary activities are used strategically to create life before the city. Temporary activities and installations attract many visitors to the neighbourhood, and Musicon has invited creative enthusiasts and artists to explore, develop and manifest. As the neighbourhood is completed, a strategic focus must be maintained on the work with the artistic expression at Musicon.
