Vertical village

If you've read some of my previous posts concerning architecture, I guess it's really no surprise that this project has caught my attention (and fancy!).. Not only is this to be constructed here in Copenhagen, it's also sufficiently cubic and un-elegant to make my skirt fly up.. What can I say? Quadrilateral shapes and me just have a very fine relationship.. But let's get to the facts, this building will be made up of 60m2 units or "pixels" which will actually be able to be moved around the core of the building which will contain both retail space, offices, a hotel and assumably also some of the most pricey flats of the entire city. Source of inspiration? I'm guessing Tetris!

wow. jeg har ikke hørt om det før, ved du hvor det skal ligge? det ligner lidt bellahøj. alt efter placeringen kan det blive rigtig flot. det vil være et flop i ørestaden og et flop i bispebjerg, men et scoop, hvis det er omgivet af ældre huse. tror jeg.

tommelfingeren op til huset og dine posts om firkantede huse.

jeg læste, at inspirationen skulle have været candyfloss... måden sukkeret fordeler sig omkring en pind i midten som en lille sky<3
