– Urbanistic problem-solving the fun way
How did Copenhagen turn bankruptcy and industrial down-turn into a driver for creative urban solutions?
And why would anyone put a ski slope on top of a power plant?
With a rapidly growing urbanisation and climate changes, there are many challenges to be faced in urban development. Copenhagen seems to have found the formula for eye-opening and multiple agenda solutions with a socially inclusive, yet playful approach. The notion of the good life goes beyond luxury and puts people first.
In this session, we show and discuss unique urban projects in Copenhagen, that focus on creating a city for the many, where sustainable solutions and a good life is possible for all.
The session includes an interactive elaborate Q&A with your two speakers.
Your session hosts are:
Alice Lempel Søndergaard
Alice has worked in various positions in urban planning and strategy and is commenting on and reviewing new architecture.
She has a degree in philosophy and modern culture and she has a profound interest in how our built environment and city planning are influencing everyday life in the city.
Asser has a background as a building designer on smaller, very diverse projects and as a teacher at the School of Architecture in Aarhus.
Asser is an architect by trade, and since 2020 he is studying construction engineering at the DTU (Technical University of Denmark).
You can read more on his blog: copenhagenarchitecture.dk.
Occasionally, on busy days, we make use of freelance architect guides, who are also professionals from the building and planning industry.
What a great way to see Copenhagen and learn more about the city and country. Besides seeing interesting buildings we learned more about the culture, ethos and sustainability in Copenhagen. Highly recommend this tour to everyone!Karen
I, my boyfriend and his mom joined this wonderful bike tour when they came to visit me in Copenhagen. We all really enjoyed it and even I saw places which I didn’t know about even though I’d lived here for 5 years.Adrianna Marszał
Amazing tour, highly recommend doing it at the beginning of your trip. If you want to learn about the city, both its past and present, the people and the architecture, don’t hesitate to book with Alice!Remi, London, UK
An amazing experience! I wouldn’t have been able to do all this by myself Having a bike ready for the tour, an experienced guide in Copenhagen was a gift I can only recommend.Yvonne, Geneva
