Trip to Copenhagen
Cultural heritage, architecture, and design!
Cultural heritage, design, and contemporary architecture are on the schedule for this four day escape to Copenhagen.
The grand finale: a visit to the seaside Bellavista housing estate completed in 1934 and designed by Arne Jacobsen, one of the greatest Danish architects.
Discover Copenhagen’s historical side, with its medieval center, Amalienborg Square, and Nyhavn, characterized by its colorful homes.
Explore the redeveloped neighborhoods along the former industrial port: Islands Brygge, Havneholmen, and Kødbyen (Copenhagen’s Meatpacking District, which today is home to art galleries, restaurants, and high-tech companies…).
An English-speaking architect-art historian will guide you through the heart of the Bellavista complex (in the Danish Rivera). Its esthetics would come to define Danish Functionalism. Its esthetics are characteristic of Danish Functionalism. Then, go on an excursion to Bellevue Beach, also designed by the famous architect and designer Arne Jacobsen.
With your guide, gain access to the Black Diamond, the royal library (Smidth Hammer Lassen Architects). No one would ever guess that the dark smoked glass and black marble façade hides the interior’s warm curves created by 24 meter high “balcony-waves”.
You will also visit the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Humlebaek, a 30 minute train ride from Copenhagen, which houses a permanent collection of more than 3 500 works (by Giacometti, Asger Jorn, Picasso, Oldenburg…).
Stroll in Freetown Christiania, the 34 hectare commune proclaimed by residents as an autonomous city since its founding in 1971 by a hippy community. This controversial and fascinating neighborhood feels untouched by time, from the street art to the psychedelic motifs that cover the walls, with its small cafés protected by sheet metal. from the psychedelic street art that covers the walls to its small cafés protected by sheet metal.
