Lecture and Tour Packages
Architecture in Denmark
Lecture: Putting people first
In Denmark, architectural policies on both the local and national levels provide a vision for development focused on putting people first. Buildings that support the welfare state – affordable housing, schools, institutions, public spaces, and town halls – are characterized by a remarkably high standard of design and construction. Learn how Danish buildings represent more than 100 years of democratic ideals focused on a high quality of life for all.
Tour: Capital of Cool: Copenhagen’s Best New Architecture (2 hours)
Explore some of Copenhagen’s most innovative contemporary buildings in the Ørestad district by the rock stars of Danish architecture.
Urban Planning in Denmark
Lecture: Sustainable cities for people
Copenhagen hasn’t always been ranked as one of the world’s most livable cities. Emerging from near-bankruptcy in the early 1990s, the city has been transformed through sustainable urban planning policies with a focus on cycling infrastructure, urban green space, and cleaning up the inner harbor. In this city home to renowned urban planner Jan Gehl, hear how Copenhagen is continually being transformed to improve the quality of life between buildings.
Tour: Inner Harbor Green Walk (90 minutes)
Discover the creative green building solutions along the heart of Copenhagen’s inner harbor.
Strategic Urban Governance in Denmark
Lecture: Plans and policies for future sustainable growth
Copenhagen has set the ambitious 2025 goal of becoming the first carbon neutral capital in the world. A new climate adaption plan to strengthen the city’s resiliency, as well as new policies that promote green infrastructure, have led to a focus on sustainable urban growth. Learn how these public and private partnerships are developing entire new districts on former industrial landscapes.
Tour: Nordhavn (North Harbor) District (90 minutes)
Explore Copenhagen’s sustainable neighborhood of the future.
