Looking centuries back, the maps reveal quite different layouts of the site. From the time when the castle was solitary positioned on the cape connected to a small artificial island by a simple bridge, over the time when industry and railroads took over, to the present with traffic and ferry terminals.
Historic traces of the area will work as a guideline for the masterplan, visitors will get a feeling of how that area has evolved through the last centuries and experience traces from several different time periods.
The historic island south of the castle is reestablished to house the Museum of The Future and The Past. The Museum of History and The Future will play the key role in this story – and be a jewel of contemporary architecture right in the heart of the area. The museum becomes the center point of the whole area and several pathways leads through, into and over the building complex.
