The Copenhagen X Gallery is a virtual exhibition of new architecture, urban spaces and plans in and around Copenhagen.
The new Nørreport is not simply a highly efficient traffic hub. It is also a successful public space, in which it is pleasant to spend time, and move around.
The Sustainable City of the Future – Nordhavn will be a prime example. This former industrial area is being transformed into an entirely new, sustainable district. Nordhavn is Scandinavia’s largest and most ambitious urban development project to date, providing space for 40,000 residents and 40,000 jobs.
The National Gallery of Denmark has acquired a new garden. The old ornate Baroque garden has been transformed into a new open landscape, inviting museum visitors and passers-by to meet up and enjoy an art break.
Like a shining white star, FN City is located on the tip of Marmormolen and reflected in the Øresund. This is where eight different UN agencies are brought together in a building of 45,000 m2, which elegantly balances stringent security requirements with an open, airy expression and a strong sustainable profile
Copenhagen's new cycle bridge The Bicycle Snake is completing the journey over the Bryggebro Bridge, offering Copenhagen's cyclists a fun ride along the harbour and past its tower blocks at first-floor level. As part of Copenhagen's strategy to be one of the best cycling cities in the world, the new cycle bridge will guarantee cyclists improved accessibility and connection to the city.
In 2004 the Oslo ferry left the quay at Kvæsthusmolen for the very last time, and the plot, with its highly desirable location, could look forward to a new future. After years of temporary projects and experiments, permanent plans have now been made and the rebuilding has begun. The ambition is to create an exciting everyday area, which will buzz with diverse urban and cultural life throughout the year.
Right opposite the Royal Danish Playhouse is Christiansholm, better known as Papirøen (“Paper Island”). You can probably remember the distinctive grey buildings with their red gates, which mysteriously faced the harbour. For several decades this was where the Procurement Association of the Danish Press stored their paper: hence the name, Papirøen. But when the Procurement Association of the Danish Press terminated their contract at the end of 2012, five years ahead of time, this paved the way for all sorts of new opportunities and exciting experiments on this central, and much sought-after site.
Amidst such Copenhagen architectural icons as the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek and the Tivoli Gardens, a new day care centre is being built. On the outside the building will hold its own in relation to its high-profile surroundings, while concealing a much gentler and flexible ambience inside for the children's day, a space for excitement, fun and vegetables!
The conversion of Vester Voldgade has reduced traffic and enhanced the boulevard atmosphere, adding rows of trees, new open spaces and wide promenades, and giving pedestrians priority on what was once a very busy stretch
In the future a meandering green landscape will flank the densely built commercial district of Kalvebod Brygge. This green stretch will interweave the office buildings with vibrant urban life, transforming this once vilified district into an attractive one.
Just a stone's throw away from the bustling shopping street of Købmagergade one finds Hauser Plads, a small, green oasis with lots of space for adults, but most definitely for children too. Because, right in the middle of the square, is a lovely playground.
With its nature, urban life and sustainable housing Ørestad attracts all sorts of people, from business people and students to property owners and families with children. The Radiorækkerne are 86 attractive townhouses. They accommodate both the city's need for housing and the lively and fast-growing life in Ørestad.
Købmagergade has been relieved of its patched asphalt mosaic and has now got a new stumble-free surface.
Roya Arena will provide Ørestad South, not only with a world-class, multi-purpose arena, but also a catalyst for urban life in this fledgling district of the city.
The façade of Toldbodgade 13 has been given a golden renovation. The building, which was previously the street's ugly duckling, has received a high calibre makeover, and now brightens up the whole street. The jewellery firm 'Troldekugler', who are the occupants of the building, were responsible for the project. In accordance with their wishes, the building has now acquired an appearance, which reflects the nature of the jewellery firm's business.
