If you like modern architecture and innovative design then Copenhagen is the place for you. Over the past years so many amazing buildings have risen and even entire areas of contemporary design structures like you’ve never seen before. Here are only a few shots of the many buildings and I’ll be posting lots more.

2. Punkthusene: This incredible building is one of 3 Punkthusene buildings at Tuborg Harbour.

It is located right next to The Black Diamond (The Royal Library) and it has a wonderful view of the harbor. Architects: NCC website | map
