Virtual Tour Series: Nordhavn – The Sustainable Borough of the Future in Copenhagen
Copenhagen’s north harbour (Nordhavn) is Scandinavia’s largest development project that will set a new standard for social, economic, and environmental sustainability while supporting Copenhagen’s long-term goal of becoming the first carbon neutral city in the world.
This virtual tour explores how the district’s old buildings, silos, and quays have been transformed into new urban typologies, blending the harbour’s industrial character with dynamic constructions, public spaces, and programming. With visits to projects including The Silo, Frihavnstårnet, and the activity-topped car park Konditaget Lüders, you will gain insight into the urban potenials of the ‘5-minute city’ and discover how future-energy solutions will become the new sustainability standard in Copenhagen.
