The Thorvaldsen Museum is one building in Copenhagen that is strikingly unique for its architecture and decorations. After my last visit, I had to make this post about the building, although it’s not typical for Danish architecture. At all! It’s not typical of anything, really…
The ‘Copenhagen lamp’ / street lamp (Københavnerlampen) refitted in my version. See pictures and contact me to buy one.
Maersk Tower by C. F. Møller Architects an impressive achievement. The architectural concept is strong and consistent, but not overly so. The spatial layout is varied and with a delicate balance between drama and restrain. A truly Danish quality of architecture. And it features a unique bike fly-over! ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■
There are LOADS of ‘must-see and must-do’s out there for visitors/guests/tourists in Copenhagen. It is such a great place to live and to visit, so things to avoid is much more manageable. I have listed 10 DON’Ts in Copenhagen by priority. No. 1: DON’T transport yourself in a car. Ride a bike!
Opened recently, BIG has also entered the field of social housing in an upcoming area in north west part of Copenhagen. Dortheavej 2A is a social housing scheme with small and mid size rental apartments.

In 1829 C. F. Hansen finished Church of Our Lady, cathedral of Copenhagen in neoclassical architecture. Sculptor Thorvaldsen created Christ & his disciples.
