Cobe to design new neighbourhood in Dortmund

Cobe has won the competition to design Dortmund’s new harbor neigbourhood, 'Hafenquartier Speicherstrasse', the transformation of the biggest channel harbor in Europe. The winning project focuses on creating a city where creativity, technology and sustainability goes hand in hand, giving new life to the abandoned industrial buildings at the harbor front. This includes the re-use of a silo and an enormous industrial 13,000 m² hall, transforming it into a new technology campus with auditoriums, workshops, exhibition spaces and foodhalls for the city’s booming tech-industry and creative start-up companies.

Make sure to visit the exhibition about the project at Studieninstitut Ruhr, Königswall 25-27, 44137 Dortmund, opening today at 6:00 pm in connection with the award ceremony.

Our Urban Living Room opens in Berlin

On 17 January 2020, Cobe and Aedes Architecture Forum open the doors to the exhibition ‘Our Urban Living Room’ in Berlin. The exhibition invites visitors to experience the city from a new perspective – as an extended living room in which the boundaries between the private and public space are erased. The exhibition presents a selection of realized Cobe projects. Using models, images, texts, drawings and films, an expansive wooden installation also tells a story about Copenhagen's architectural development and how these changes affect the everyday lives of people and their social interactions.

This is Cobe's third ‘Our Urban Living Room’ exhibition, following its first at the Danish Architecture Centre in Copenhagen in 2016, and later at Laituri in Helsinki in 2018. The revised edition is developed by Cobe in collaboration with Aedes, and generously supported by Dreyers Fond, Tømmerhandel Johannes Fogs Fond and Knud Højgaards Fond. 'Our Urban Living Room' runs from 17 January to 30 April 2020 at Aedes Architecture Forum, Christinenstr. 18-19, 10119 Berlin, Germany. See more info here.

All of adidas under one roof

In 2019, the iconic sports brand adidas had its 70th anniversary. And in 2018, the world-famous company with the three iconic stripes opened the HALFTIME building - a huge and striking new building that forms part of its corporate headquarters, ‘World of Sports’, in Germany.

In addition to a canteen for all HQ employees, the building contains meeting rooms, a conference center and a showroom where the company’s high-profile brand ambassadors can stop by to see the latest designs, collections and ideas. To accommodate the many internal and public functions that HALFTIME includes, the building is versatile and multi-purpose, bringing together as many of the company’s activities and functions as possible together under one roof. The huge rhomboid roof covers the entire building like a carpet, bringing staff, visitors and brand ambassadors together and thus enabling more and wider contacts.
