On November 21 2019, COBE's architect and project director Caroline Nagel will do a public presentation about 'Our Urban Living Room' in Freiburg, Germany. The presentation will take place at Freiburg Concert Hall at 7:00 PM and is open to the public.

 

'Our Urban Living Room' is based on COBE's work in Copenhagen the last decade, grounded in social livability and urban democracy, and our aim to create cities, buildings and public spaces that invite Copenhageners to use and define them; as an extended living room, where the boundaries between private and public space is fluid. 'Our Urban Living Room' tells stories about the architectural development of Copenhagen, while exploring the progression of the Danish capital - from an industrial city into an urban living room, known as one of the world’s most livable places.

Late August was the official opening of a new, major square at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark: Karen Blixens Plads.

 

The square has a unique undulating landscape with bicycle hills and plant beds. It is one of the largest public spaces in Copenhagen and has room for more than 2,000 parked bicycles, two-thirds of them in covered spaces inside the bicycle hills. In a soft transition, Karen Blixens Plads brings together the university's need for urban spaces and bicycle parking with the open landscape of the neigbouring common, promoting green transportation, climate change adaptation and biodiversity.

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.
