Expecting a large influx in children and teens, Copenhagen commissions architects to build a 'Neverland-like' structure in its downtown core.

Copenhagen, Denmark has a fast-growing population that continues to rise. Statistics show that by the year 2025, the already crowded city will have upwards of 90,000 more inhabitants, 22,000 of which will be under the age of eighteen. In preparation for this large influx of young citizens, Copenhagen Municipality asked a number of architects to present their most innovative and creative ideas.
