How Copenhagen became an architecture and design paragon
Creativity, craftsmanship and democracy are all elements that for decades have helped position Denmark as a frontrunner in innovative design and architecture that improve lives.
The architecture legacy in Copenhagen is strong, all-pervading and built on the international success experienced by the New Modern architecture movement in the 1960’s - but is more relevant than ever. Here's why.
Ever since then, Copenhagen has been shaped by several booms of new, innovative buildings and urban spaces across neighbourhoods and lately with a strong focus on combining sustainability and high quality of life.
