Dome of Visions Copenhagen

The first Dome of Visions by architects Benny Jepsen and Kristoffer Tejlgaard build next to the Royal Danish Library. This geodesic dome was built to promote new ideas in construction and urban thinking as well as a consideration for a sustainable society of the future. Dome of Visions was used as an event centre for cultural events and open meeting place for the public. The temporary building was put down at the end of 2015. Currently, new geodesic domes are constructed for a period of time in collaboration with NCC and introduced to citizens all over the Nordic countries e.g. Aarhus, Stockholm, Visby and Helsinki.

Multiple commuting options

There are multiple commuting options available how the get smoothly through the district of Islands Brygge. Copenhagen's city ferries are one of the popular options, especially for tourists. Otherwise, Copenhagener's prefer the many bicycle bridges that can bring you fastest to any destination between the south and the central part of the city.

Summer in Islands Brygge

In the summertime, one of the most favourable places for Copenhagener's is the harbour waterfront district of residential area Islands Brygge. Popular between the Danish people is to go boating or simply swimming and sunbathing. This neighbourhood is much under redevelopment and known for modern architecture.

Frederiksberg rooftops

Frederiksberg is a densely populated municipality within the city of Copenhagen. Frederiksberg is known for the many parks, villa districts and many older buildings. During Strøm Festival I visited a synthesizer workshop on the ground level of this building. The organiser Ole Bjørn Binding invited to his rooftop overseeing the mesmerising Frederiksberg cityscape.

Junction point

The Culture Yard (Kulturværft) is accessible from many doors. From this spot you can, for example, enter the library. The building is located at the junction point between the Kronborg castle, the Maritime Museum and few old residential houses. Very close by is the railway station and the ferry terminal to Sweden.
