STEVEN HOLL ARCHITECTS' COPENHAGEN GATE PROJECT GATE L & GATE M

November 12, 2015

The city is working with a new local plan for Steven Holl Architects’ project for two skyscrapers joined by a pedestrian bridge at the entrance to the historic harbor in Copenhagen. The design won the competition in October 2008 by a unanimous decision. Construction has been delayed by the economy, but is planned to start in 2016/17 if rental efforts are progressing satisfactorily. The design was honored by a Progressive Architecture Award in 2010. The competition required a pedestrian bridge 65 m above the harbor (for cruise ship clearance) allowing direct links from Gate L to Gate M and the Nordhavn train station.

Steven Holl Architects’ ‘Linked Hybrid’ project in Beijing, featuring 8 bridged towers, was awarded both ‘Best Tall Building in Asia and Australia’ and ‘Best Tall Building Overall’ by CTBUH (Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat) in 2009.
