The new modern library of Copenhagen

For those of you who like the modern architecture, we want to emphasize this work here. The idea of easy accessibility for all the people who come here from all directions of the city, behind the project. This also applies to the otherwise very clearly structured areas inside. The latter are dedicated to the education, entertainment and recreation, and also function. Remarkable is, after all, as one could get many of the features of the traditional Danish public architecture. Recognisable by their characters on the design of the facade, the ceiling, the courtyard and the lights.
