Ørestad

This is going to be a long one, just a heads up…

I visited Ørestad, which is a new development in Copenhagen, earlier this week. Ørestad has buildings by many up and coming architects, as well as some “BIG” names (sorry, I had to…) I had a hard time narrowing down the pictures, so there are lots, here they are:

Mountain Dwellings – Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG)

Mountain Dwellings is a new housing project that was finished in 2008. It was built so that all of the apartments are penthouses, with their own patios, and underneath the living space is parking.

If you want to know more about this project, Bjarke Ingels gave a TED Talk about it, which is really interesting:

Start it at 10:50 to hear about Mountain Dwellings, but the whole thing is pretty good.
