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.

Modern Danish architecture

Lundgaard & Tranberg Architects finished the Havneholmen residential building in 2008. The European awarded housing complex stands out in its appearance for varying building heights of the apartments and the visual tone.

The oldest hotel in town

The oldest hotel in Malmö. This 14th-century construction is the first building complex you can see when you leave the Malmö Central Railway Station through the main entrance. In 1862 it became the Hotel Savoy, and still, the building is a hotel after a century.

Brygge Bridge

Brygge Bridge opened in 2006 to the public and was the first bridge reserved for cyclists and pedestrians only. The bridge connects Islands Brygge with Vesterbro and is one of the greatest shortcuts between these two city districts.

Cultural activity united

Malmö's newest architectural wonder unites cultural activity. The buildings seem apart, but are all connected with many entrances. The complex is close to the railway station and the city centre. The white building is a residential construction, not connected to the complex.

Malmö Stadsbibliotek

The Malmö City Library (Malmö Stadsbibliotek) as seen from the Kings Park. The library is over hundred years old and is one of the largest collections in Sweden with over half a million of different media. Malmö Stadsbibliotek consists of three buildings: The former Malmö Museum called the "Castle" and two new buildings "The Cylinder" linking the old with the new building "The Calendar of Light" designed by the Danish architect Henning Larsen (1997).

Aarhus Docklands

Coming from the sea to Aarhus reveals newly established district Aarhus Docklands (2007) which is located in the harbour area. The construction site started developing new residential buildings the very same year it was founded. One of the first buildings finalised is the ISBJERGET residential living complex (2013) designed and developed by four architectural firms, the Danish CEBRA and JDS Architects, French Louis Paillard and Dutch SeARCH. The building especially attracts attention as to its shape, form and colour, standing much out from any other residential building in the world.

Irregular shape

The architecture of Isbjerget is unusual and each of the building blocks seems irregular in its shape, just like floating icebergs.

Residential mountain

The Isbjerget residential building complex belongs to the category of modernist architecture and has been built, developed and finalised in the period from 2010-2013. The design resembles floating icebergs in the North Atlantic.

Space for interaction

In-between the many entrances and lifts to the concert hall various spaces for interaction and meetings are accessible on different levels.
