Copenhagen, Denmark - invited
Visible from the Central Train Station, the Town Hall Square and Tivoli, the Scala Tower on Axel Square is located at the central traffic, cultural and commercial centre of Copenhagen. It acts as the visiting card of Copenhagen to the surrounding world in the heart of a potent mix of elite and popular culture. We wish to continue Scala’s function as a place for concerts, cinemas, shops and restaurants. The municipality has expressed a wish to have Scala house the new main library. Additionally, the proximity to the Central Station and the central location make the building suitable for conferences, hotel rooms and offices. Many activities in one place. Rather than choosing between one thing or another, we propose to realize all wishes and possibilities all at once: A dense and lively tower for the city that combines both private and public in a sliding scale from the street to the rooftop in one continuous movement.
