In Drømmenes Copenhagen , architecture critic Holger Dahl takes us through the Copenhagen of unrealized architecture. We remember what once was. But what about all that never was? Ideas that could have changed the city for better or worse. With Holger Dahl as an expert guide, we are led through an imagined city that contains Jørn Utzon's swimming pool at Søerne, a wall of BIG housing along Kløvermarken and Theo Bjerg's extension to SMK.
Public memory is relentlessly short, and we rarely give the unbuilt much thought. That amnesia challenges 'Drømmenes Copenhagen'. What qualities and ambitions did the unrealized projects have? Did we always choose the right solution?
Holger Dahl is a trained architect and is architecture editor at Berlingske Tidende. He has in-depth knowledge of Copenhagen and the city's architecture.
