The Opera Park is a generous public park, centrally located in Copenhagen’s inner harbor and next door to the Royal Opera House. The purpose is to create a lush green space at the water’s edge where the hustle and bustle of everyday city life is put on hold and where nature and calmness take over.

 

The park is a contemporary translation of classical English romantic gardens and features more than 80 different species of trees, plants and flowers - injecting an island of biodiversity into the city’s heart. The park’s centerpiece is a greenhouse, nestled into the trees, with a café and a vertical connection to the underground parking facility for 300 cars. The surrounding area is rapidly being developed to meet the demands of Copenhagen’s increasing population, while the Opera Park will stand as an open and public space filled only with its diverse plant life as well as the lives of Copenhageners and those who will visit its newest green space.

Meet COBE's founder Dan Stubbergaard in a public debate about the invisible paywalls of our cities, together with Kristoffer Lindhart Weiss, Philosopher and Director of the Danish Architectural Press and David Pinder, Professor of Urban Studies at RUC.

 

Rising housing prices accompanied by expensive rents build an economic wall around the world’s biggest cities. While cities like Copenhagen and Aarhus earn international recognition for their high quality of life, economic imbalances and structural challenges are rising. What are the consequences of this development and what tools do urban planners and politicians have to face these challenges?


The debate is organized by Golden Days together with the Danish Architectural Press and will be in English. Admission is free. No registration. See more here

 

Time and location:

Thursday 19th September 2019 at 4:30pm at COBE's studio, Orientkaj 4, DK-2150 Nordhavn.

COBE has been selected as the winner of the architecture contest to design FLSmidth's new headquarters. The winning proposal honours the preservation-worthy buildings, while also creating new, green and modern spaces for workspace collaboration.

 

FLSmidth delivers sustainable productivity to the global mining and cement industries and has more than 11,000 employees represented in 60 countries. Since 1956 the home of the company's global business has been in Valby, Copenhagen where the buildings are iconic in the area. However, they do not meet modern standards for collaboration for a global company like FLSmidth.

 

COBE's winning proposal strikes the balance between respecting the original architecture while also incorporating the companys values and need for a collaborative working environment that nurtures innovation. While a few of the existing buildings will be torn down, the biggest buildings remain and will be joined by a new underground carpark and two new buildings. Local residents will also benefit from the reconstruction as the surrounding park will be opened to the public.
