steven holl architects wins copenhagen gateway competition
steven holl architects has won ‘the LM project’, a competition to design a new harbor entrance to the city of copenhagen. connecting office towers and civic spaces with a public walkway 65 meters above the harbor, the project is intended to form a new landmark for the city. the design consists of two highrises with two bridges meeting at an angle. public amenities such as cafés and galleries are also included in the design. the project utilizes sustainable solutions as both towers have high performance glass curtain walls with a veil of solar screen made of photovoltaics; collecting the sun’s energy. wind turbines line the top of the pedestrian bridge roof; providing all electricity for lighting the public spaces.
