Our urban living room

Our Urban Living Room -The theme is based on Cobe’s practice, grounded in social livability and urban democracy, and our aim to create buildings and spaces that invite Copenhageners to use and define them; as an extended living room, where the boundaries between private and public space become fluid.

  Based on specific Cobe projects, Our Urban Living Room tells stories about the architectural development of Copenhagen, while exploring the progression of the Danish Capital - from an industrial city into an urban living room, known as one of the world’s most livable places.
