Scaledenmark was happy to welcome RKD in Copenhagen, an international firm that is driven by design-led thinking. Their main focus was to learn about the history, financing, economic benefits, timeline and phasing of the Copenhagen harbor and parallel seeing the proposed new development on the site of the old harbor.

In a densely scheduled day we offered them a taste of every harbor site and even managed to slip in some spectacular experimental architecture in Ørestad. We started off by checking out the transformation of the Carlsberg district and moved on to the spectacular experimental ground of Ørestad. After having lunch in the great cafè 8TALLET we ended the day at the harbor front of Sluseholmen and Havneholmen, where another shift in scale showed very different ways of approaching city building from scratch.
