Private group tour

Discover the creative green building solutions along the heart of Copenhagen’s inner harbor.
Copenhagen leads the way in thinking and designing green. Swimming in a sparkling harbor once filled with industrial ships. Hundreds of kilometers of dedicated bike lanes. Inventive adaptive reuse of old buildings. New construction with recycled materials and green roofs. Copenhagen plans to become carbon neutral by 2025 and using the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is an international leader in creating a sustainable, smart, and livable city.
In addition to BLOX, home of the Danish Architecture Center (OMA, 2018), we’ll visit COBE architects’ award-winning housing complex, Krøyers Plads (2015), which reinvents the 300-year old warehouses along the harbor using sustainable materials. Other highlights of the tour include the Royal Danish Playhouse (Lundgaard & Tranberg Architects, 2008), which uses seawater to cool the theater. We’ll also stroll through Sankt Annæ Plads and hear about this 18th century plaza (Schønherr Architects, 2016) which was elegantly redesigned handle extreme rain storms. From afar, we’ll learn about Amager Bakke (BIG, 2018) Copenhagen’s new waste to power generation plant which includes a sloped roof – that creatively doubles as the city’s ski slope.
