Mor og barn, der tegner ny facade på Bohrs Tårn

A new facade for Bohr’s Tower

Bohr’s Tower has met quite a resistance in the public. A major point of criticism has been the shape of the tower – its height and width make it something of a hulking presence. However, the building’s shape had already been defined in the City of Copenhagen’s local development plan, so the architects have played with the size of the windows to make the tower appear narrower. How would you draw the facade of Bohr’s Tower if you had the chance?

Bomb the city
green

Roll seed bombs and help spread flowers in the city’s concrete jungle. Throw the seed bomb when it’s spring – or give a green and sustainable gift to your grandfather or aunt. You will find the recipe right here.
