Copenhagen - The Blue City is a photographic narrative about a
rapidly developing capital that uses water as a unifying element.
Copenhagen harbour has sprung to life. People take to swimming in the
harbour as kayaks and boats mingle with the harbour buses, while
bicyclists and pedestrians await the construction of new bridges. All
around the harbour area, opportunities present themselves to people
wanting to enjoy life and partake of the outdoor pleasures, even as
the harbour provides amble opportunities for commercial utilization.
Modern buildings have sprung up in a lot of places along the harbour
waterfront, and on Dokøen the opera house testifies to new times on
Holmen where art and architecture fill the gap left by the relocation
of the naval base. Equally as modern is Ørestad, a new part of town
with groundbreaking architecture - as well as being a part of town
that incorporates water as a vital architectonic element.
Urban development will accelerate in the coming years with, among
other projects, the construction of a new cruise ship quay and a city
quarter in Nordhavn with thousands of workplaces and dwellings. The
next large development project awaits on Refshaleøen which, until
then, is the new cultural hotspot with art experiences, rocket
construction and action activities in raw and different surroundings.
