In early summer, greater Copenhagen’s new public transport hub, Køge Nord Station, was officially opened. A spectacular foot-bridge, a station and a park area, hovering high-speed trains, local trains and the busiest motorway in the country. Designed by COBE, DISSING+WEITLING architecture and COWI, the station forms a significant hub for green mobility, and provides access to more efficient and sustainable public transport for everyone going to and from the Danish capital.

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.
