5.2 Key learnings from the Kumu mapping analysis and projection of Kanten/
The Edge competition
The learnings from Kanten/The Edge competition helped answer the main research question by offering examples of what nature-based coastal protection models might look like in practice. The findings revealed the potential role of the spatial design disciplines in aiding the blue-green transition towards a new reality with water in the future for coastal cities like Vejle (addressing SRQ1). The winning entries revealed different approaches with unique strengths and weaknesses in creatively integrating the marine realm into the urban realm (addressing RQ). In the following, I reflect critically on the key learnings from Kanten/The Edge competition, encompassing the three phases of involvement from Figure 115.
