One of my favorite public buildings in the north-west part of Copenhagen, Denmark is the Library at Rentemestervej. The cultural building by architects COBE and Transform looks like as a stack of books. The golden building has won several awards (e.g. Best Refurbished Building) and is both a library, a community center and an urban space uniting the neighborhood.

The building consists of 4 golden boxes with perforated aluminum 
displaced in proportion to each other. At ground floor, there’s a children’s library, then a youth library, a library for adults and finally on top, a concert hall.

The new #bigmaze by BIG Architects and Bjarke Ingels at the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C. The large-scale maze is 18 feet high and measuring 61 feet by 61 feet made of Baltic birch plywood. 

Inspired by ancient labyrinths, garden and hedge mazes of 17th and 18th-century Europe, and modern American corn mazes, this contemporary maze is located in the West Court of the Museum’s historic Great Hall. 

"The concept is simple: as you travel deeper into a maze, your path typically becomes more convoluted. What if we invert this scenario and create a maze that brings clarity and visual understanding upon reaching the heart of the labyrinth?", says Bjarke Ingels, the Danish architect who founded BIG Architects in 2005 after co-founding PLOT Architects in 2001 and working at OMA in Rotterdam.

From outside, the maze’s cube-like form hides the final reveal behind its 18-foot-tall walls. On the inside, the walls slowly descend towards the center which concludes with a grand reveal—a 360 degree understanding of your path in and how to get out.

The “BIG maze” will be until September 1, 2014. It’s a part of National Building Museums annual Summer Block Party. Also, it’s a teaser offering a sneak peek into the upcoming exhibition “amBIGuity” by BIG Architects opening in 2015.

What once was just the front of the Marriott hotel and a headquarter of the Nykredit Bank, is now a cool place for summer hangouts in Copenhagen. At Kalvebod Brygge - opposite the very popular, and crowded Islands Brygge, the Kalvebod Wave (in Danish: Kalvebod Bølge) is Islands Brygge’s urban counterpart. 

With a close connection to the central train station and Tivoli, Copenhagen’s famous city amusement park,  Kalvebod Waves is a hub where the inner city has regained its connection to the harbor. 

Architects: JDS Architects. See the full project here.

The new bicycle ramp/bridge named “Cykelslangen” taking bikers in Copenhagen from Havneholmen along the shopping centre Fisketorvet to the shopping centre’s main entrance, will inaugurate next week. It’s a project paid by the Municipality of Copenhagen. The bridge will completely separate cyclists from pedestrians and hereby solve a large current logistic problem in the area. Yet another proof that Copenhagen is the best city to bike in - worldwide!

The House of Water in Skanderborg, Denmark. By AART Architects for DANVA (the Danish Association for Water and Wastewater). The headquarter was completed in 2010. Thanks to the eco-friendly architectonic concept, the building has been awarded the Danish sustainable award Bæredygtig Beton Prisen 2011 and Skanderborg Municipality’s Architecture Prize 2011

Architecturally, the building expresses that it is a knowledge centre focussed on water. It’s constructed in low energy class 1 according the Danish building regulations. Thus, the building not only minimise its energy demand. It also diverts rain water locally and thereby relieves the sewer systems, increases groundwater resources and contributes to biodiversity. 

Besides reducing energy demand, the building also diverts rainwater locally and thereby relieves the sewer systems, increases groundwater resources and contributes to biodiversity.
