Copenhagen Historical Survey and Present Development on the Waterfront

1st Lecture of series: Jens Kvorning of Copenhagen Royal Academy of Fine Arts

Review by Adrian Welch

This talk by Jens Kvorning really explained both past and present Copenhagen planning and architecture issues. Jens’ explanation of the newer Danish buildings, such as Henning Larsen’s warehouCharlottenborg, Copenhagen, Denmark building facadese-type finger blocks, was made poignant and understandable by the earlier descriptions of the creation of Copenhagen city and harbour.

There were points when I wasn’t sure which bit of the Copenhagen I was looking at, but this was generally solved a few minutes later by pattern recognition, though I’m fortunate to have visited the city at first hand unlike some others attending. In summary, Jens made a professional and interesting talk which bodes well for the rest of the Tuesday Lecture series.

Carlsberg Central Office in Valby
The Carlsberg Group’s new central office provides the framework for a modern and dynamic workplace, where the intention has been to design a building that creates identity, knowledge sharing and innovation. At the same time it has been important that the building stands in harmony with its surroundings and has the aesthetic quality that characterises Carlsberg as a company.
