This Conference will explore how Copenhagen works, why it works, where it works, when it works, and why… sometimes doesn’t. We will explore key factors that affect many European cities to which the city of Copenhagen has developed a unique response. Sustainability, live/work balance, the cycling culture, designing with lighting and water, the city’s design culture, and exploring public and private space in the city will be the key focus points of our conference. To mimic life in this engaging city, we will explore the city by boat, bicycle, walking tours and even a morning run. Lectures, cocktail hours and a gala dinner in locations throughout the city will inform your new perspective on Copenhagen.

Lecture and Architectural Walking Tour of the Islands Brygge Neighborhood

Islands Brygge is one of Copenhagen’s most popular waterfront neighborhoods. Its current form was created during a series of land reclamation projects dating from 1880 as the former coastline used to sit roughly 500 meters to the southeast. This land was filled in under King Christian IV rule for military purposes. Since then it has had a myriad of zoning ranging from military, industrial, dockland, and currently residential and mixed use.

The expansive open spaces of Amagerfælled and Kalvebod Fælled have provided new residents with attractive views of both wildlife and green areas, offering a reprieve from the dense urban core of downtown.

Gala Dinner at Søren K, Black Diamond Library, Søren Kierkegaards Plads 1 Located in one of Denmark’s most spectacular buildings along the harbour front, Søren K offers views of the city’s finest architecture, water and sky, and a fantastic menu.

COBE is an international architectural company founded in Copenhagen in 2006. COBE is managed and owned by Dan Stubbergaard and employs around 140 dedicated architects, constructing architects, landscape architects and urban planners. “For us, architecture is not a matter of a certain style or form, but more importantly its adaptability to the local context, its social life and its users. It is our aim to create social interaction through all our projects.” That is why COBE has developed a community of architects with the capability to approach all scales of architecture from urban planning, to buildings and public space. It is these elements combined, that create the physical conditions for people’s lives and their social interaction.

Embassy of Switzerland / Open Embassy Denmark Richelieus Alle 14, 2900 Hellerup / Architecture and design give form to an award-winning new take on diplomacy, showcased by the Open Embassy. It is a unique combination of the world of diplomacy and traditional embassy practice with event-based cultural and artistic exchanges between Swiss and Danish groups of interest. They invite Swiss and Danish schools of architecture and design, craftspeople, industrial partners and other stakeholders to exchange knowledge and ideas, and to design and implement constructions in the gardens of the Embassy of Switzerland, north of Copenhagen. The Swiss story of the Open Embassy is one that continues to evolve. Nominated in the Game Changer category, the Open Embassy took home the Danish Design Awards 2017 for its unique design concept that represents a brand-new take on embassies where diplomacy meets people head-on instead of hiding in guarded domiciles. “The project is a piece of social design that turns traditional diplomacy on its head and may inspire other public institutions to move towards more openness and transparency” – wrote the jury in their motivation for choosing Open Embassy as the winner. Urgent.Agency continues to work closely with the Swiss Embassy in further developing the concept and testing the new boundaries for public diplomacy. Learn more by visiting:

AIA Europe: Welcome to your architectural tour of Ørestad With its world class architecture, visionary PPP model, and transformative success-story for Copenhagen at-large, Ørestad offers an unfolding story as an international innovation district for urban leaders seeking strategies and solutions for sustainable governance at a local, regional, and national scale. The redevelopment of Ørestad pioneered a new level of partnership between the national government and the city government of Copenhagen, creating an innovative corportate vehicle - known today as CPH City & Port Development - to transform underutilized public land that would finance large-scale infrastructure and urban renewal projects. While there has been a lot of praise surrounding the success of Ørestad’s economic model, there has been considerable debate regarding the livability of the district in relation to the rest of Copenhagen’s celebrated urban neighborhoods. We are here to give you the ‘heart’ behind the orginal concept of the masterplan and to follow the future of the dynamic design principles behind Ørestad’s development. Focusing on the themes of public-private collaboration, sustainability, and architectural criticism, we will explore the new housing typologies and urban transformation models shaping Ørestad’s future. Our Copehagen-based architects are ready to share their personal insights and professional reflections on the development ideas behind Copenhagen’s model for green growth. Enclosed you will find the program schedule for your tour with us. We look forward to exploring Ørestad and sustainable ways of living with you. Kind Regards / Med venlig hilsen Bo Christiansen Director, Architect MAA Scaledenmark

Good to Know Info Mobile Pay Many shops and restaurants will accept payment through a service called MobilePay. This app based service only works with Danish Bank accounts. Some shops and restaurant will only accept cash or MobilePay, so it is a good idea to have some Danish Kroner on hand, just in case. Uber and Lyft Ride hailing services such as Uber and Lyft have been banned in Denmark. If you need a ride, use one of the taxi services listed on the next page or use Copenhagen’s amazing public transit. Christiania Christiania is one of the most eclectic neighborhoods in Copenhagen. It is an architectural gem and is a good example of when a self-governing neighborhood is considered independent from the country it sits in. Photography in Christiania is strictly forbidden on Pusher Street due to street vendors selling marijuana, and some other areas with private residences. Please follow this rule as breaking it could result in personal harm. Cycling & Bike Lanes Cyclists in Denmark anticipate to have the right of way on roads, so watch out for them. Do not stand or step in the bike lanes or there is a possibility you might get hit or cause a crash. If you are planning on biking in Copenhagen, be sure to stay to the right and signal your intentions of turning or stopping. You can also read up on the rules of cycling by visiting: activities/copenhagen-two-wheels-0
