Didn’t think you could ski in Copenhagen, Denmark, then think again! Thanks to the amazing design team at BIG (Bjarke Ingles Group) Architects it will soon be possible to Ski in Copenhagen.
The project, due fro completion in 2018, will incorporate a series of artificial runs and hiking trails on top of the Citie’s newest power station which will also be the world’s first carbon neutral power station.
See VisitCopenhagen.com from more information about the project! Worth checking out Episode 4 of Netfix’s ‘Abstract, the Art of Design’ series too as it covers the project in some depth as well as exploring the history of the BIG group.
Given Britian’s success at Winter Olympics events in recent years, due largely to an investment in artificial slopes, I’ll be particularly interested to see how this incredible initiative could also impact the future potential of Denmark to produce winter sports athletes!
