architecture on site
COPENHAGEN has proved and strengthened its impressive position as architecture city in the last couple of years. Blessed with a rich architecture history, presently different parts of the city see new architecture and completely new neighbourhoods are being realised. Copenhagen benefits from its location near the water - with the former docklands falling vacant especially those parts of the city can be turned into real showpieces. The new opera, the royal theatre and the extension of the library are great examples. The southern harbour is redesigned with the Amsterdam Java-eiland (urban design by Sjoerd Soeters) as a source of inspiration. The Sluseholmen urban design proposed, just like its Dutch counterpart, an urban structure with closed building blocks and new canals.
