Founded in 2005 by Dan Stubbergaard and Vanessa Miriam Carlow, COBE (whose name is derived from the cities in which they are based: Copenhagen and Berlin) is a progressive, contemporary community of architects that focuses on sustainability and design. Although a very young practice, they quickly gained an innovative reputation, winning a number of high profile projects and prizes, including the Golden Lion of the 10th Venice Architecture Biennale in 2006 and Scandinavia’s prestigious Nykredit Architecture Prize in 2012. The Copenhagen office, headed by Dan Stubbergaard, currently employs some 40 architects.
Known for ambitious metropolitan developments such as the new Culture House and Library in Copenhagen, designed to create a landmark and to provide a meeting point for the local community, COBE is currently realising major projects in Denmark: the Nørreport Train Station in the centre of Copenhagen, The ROCKmagnet, Denmark’s museum of rock music in Roskilde, and consulting on the development of Nordhavnen (Copenhagen), Scandinavia’s biggest urban development of the moment.
Please print your ticket(s) and present at the door, strictly no admission without ticket due to limited spaces.
