Since the late 1990s, it has undergone a transformation from a modest Scandinavian capital into a metropolitan city of international appeal in the same league as Barcelona and Amsterdam.The City of Copenhagen offers you 20 libraries - a main library and 19 branch libraries - located throughout the city. For the citizens of Copenhagen libraries are a true point of encounter and exchange. The library is a fundamental building the culture of this city.
København - New modern library Competition wants to launch the challenge to determine a new model of library 2.0, which also reflects the traditions and customs of the citizens of Copenhagen.

WE architecture


WE Architecture is a young office founded in January 2009 by the architects Marc Jay (1976, Copenhagen, Denmark) and Julie Schmidt- Nielsen (1980, Aarhus, Denmark). The studio is based in Copenhagen, Denmark. WE architecture handles architectural and urban design, interior design and renovation and the development of conceptual projects and visionary ideas. As the primary focus of the office is architecture, a lot of effort is put to rethink and examine new potential correlations and relationships in architecture, framed by a sustainable approach. We make our solutions rise above the predictable. The practice has already showed inventiveness and originality in several competitions and projects. Over the last year we have won awards in several international competitions and in 2013 we received the major grant from the Danish Arts Foundation. Current projects include Mariehøj Cultur center (under construction) and Pixel villas (detailing phase).
