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. The winners were COBE, NORD architects, along with landscape architects PK3 and Grontmij, who collaborated together to produce ‘Prinsessegade Kindergarten and Youth Club,’ which is expected to be completed by 2014.
