3 themes for the programming:

Life between buildings

 

Copenhagen is world-class when it comes to creating a city with a human scale. There is plenty of public meeting places, green space and room for people walking safely or on bike. On this tour you will see and get an understanding of best practice examples when it comes to the city's urban spaces: from climate adaptation projects to biodiversity areas and multifunctional urban solutions. Urban planner Jan Gehl's mindset has certainly had an impact on Copenhagen's urban space. 

Equally importantly, Jan Gehls ideas have Influenced new generations of urbanists.

For example, the notion of creating shelter and recreational space between residential properties. Moreover, the fact that people prefer to gather where there are other people.  

Also, Copenhagen contains many good examples of densification, such as well-thought-out transitions between housing complexes and busy roads. Or transitions between metro stations and public squares and commercial streets. Mobility is a chapter per se in Copenhagen: 17 new metro stations and numerous biking paths and bridges. Everybody go by bike and public transport. 

Duration: 1 day, with 4-5 project and area visits. On bike - or with metro. 

 


New building materials and the concept of the mixed city

 

Building with recyclable building materials or with bio-based materials, such as clay, gras and hemp, is an important tendency. You will visit privately owned housing projects and a school built by upcycled building materials – as well as innovative material producers. Wood and CLT constructions are also on it's way in Copenhagen, not least with the new district Fælledbyen. Here, the aim is to design a sustainable city, built in wood/CLT.  Also, wildlife will be re-established and housing options are diverse, mostly for rent, as well as co-living and youth housing. In addition, there is a number of DGNB-certified buildings in and around Copenhagen, from commercial buildings to cultural centers, schools and universities, which you will get to visit.

 

As many other Western cities the Municipality of Copenhagens' future planning is all about designing the so-called  "mixed city." That is, where people feel safe and where buildings ideally are in use 24-7. An area with housing complexes, education, business, retail, good transport options and culture. You will get a chance to see and understand different "mixed city developments" such as Jernbanebyen and Nordhavn. And equally important: What has Copenhagen learned from the less successful urban development projects? Which kind of challenges is the initial city development area Ørestaden facing?

 

Duration: 1 day, with 4-5 project and area visitsOn bike - or with metro. 

Copenhagen classic

 

Come along “behind the scenes” and visit masterpieces by Danish modernist architects as Arne Jacobsen, Kay Fisker og Eva & Niels Koppel. You will get a unique chance to understand the key components of the widely recognized Danish architectural language, from neoclassicism to modernism, brutalism and contemporary architecture, i.e. from 1930 to1980. 

 

The focus is on site visits as well as insight into the historical context: Social housing examples and master planning from the unique movement “Better Building Practice” (etablished around 1915), to hotels and educational institutions. You will obtain an understanding of concepts and materials – and restoration challenges. In addition, perspectives from users throughout many decades. Meetings with 2-3 professionals who has been working with restoration tasks, energy-optimization or other aspects is included – besides a city development guide who will lead the tour.     

Duration: 1 day, with 4-5 project and area visits. On bike - or with metro.
