Over the last decade, Copenhagen has undergone a major transformation – not just in its appearance, but in the way the city functions and is experienced by its residents. COBE’s projects are spread out over Copenhagen, but they aren’t cookie-cutter buildings that are placed without meaning or context. Each structure is highly aware of what the local markers mean in a globalised world. What unites them is the architects’ desire to achieve a more sustainable, socially inviting urban environment for city residents.

Birthday party on Israel's Square, workplace at the local library or an afternoon in the sun on Queen Louise's Bridge. For Cobe, the city is our living room and we are increasingly moving our everyday activities into it, where we feel at home.

This monograph speaks to all those who live and work in cities, with contributions ranging from established architects and architecture critics to the those in municipal and urban planning roles and the residents themselves.
