Nine Suisse architects from Atelier M2 faced the Copenhagen winter with us and went around several projects in Ørestad, such as Tietgen Student housing and the Mountain dwellings. They ended up biking along the harbor, where they explored the public buildings that revived the inner city, amongst others our own home base BLOX. We had many interesting discussions on the strong design culture in Denmark, which is expressed into the smallest detail of everyday life. What exactly lies behind this high degree of design consciousness and how can it be exported into international practices?
