Learning expedition architecture & urbanism

WITH PROFESSIONALS THAT SHARE YOUR LINE OF BUSINESS

Our study trips are aimed at professionals in urban planning, construction and architecture : landscape architects, urban planners, architects, project managers, elected representatives, building owners …

Over a few days, you will be able to discover the strengths of these cities and meet your peers. All our visits are guided by professionals (architects, urban planners …) and accompanied by interpreters.

NORDIC INSITE organizes your study tours on architecture and urban planning in Copenhagen and Malmö.

You will benefit from our professional experience in ensuring quality stakeholders for each visit. We have standard programmes from which to get inspiration and we can also develop a personalized programme together combining the different modules in our brochure.

Depending on your interests and urban/ architectural concerns of the moment, NORDIC INSITE organizes tours à la carte so that this stay brings you a wealth of knowledge.

Example of 3 cases we worked on:

Collective housing is very common in Denmark – cooperative housing communities account for 33% of residences in Copenhagen. Contrary to what one might think, this mode of living is neither reserved for people living the ideas of the hippie communities, nor for socially disadvantaged groups. Moreover, many beautiful “Haussmann style” apartments operate in this way. The system of cooperative communities makes it possible to limit real estate speculations, and in particular to create a solidarity often forgotten in our current way of life. Thanks to a well-organized board of directors and volunteerism, everyone has a place.

The “Tomatoes on the Roof” project is an adventure that is human, environmental and urban. It began on the roof of a rubbish shelter in the courtyard of a Nørrebro building, and then went from roof to roof and also into public spaces. The principle is to use roofs, mainly, to develop urban gardening  and at the same time links between the inhabitants. This project raises both the question of the place of agriculture and nature in the city but also that of the creation of a social link. It has also inspired other organizations that have developed a large garden on the roof of a supermarket. An architect by trade, the founder of TagTomat happily shares his experience.

ARCHITECTURE

No visit to Copenhagen should be made without discovering the port, its modern buildings and the bathing areas: things that enhance the city’s reputation and its high quality of life. With 55% of people cycling to work, we will show you the keys to the success of Copenhagen’s cycling policy.

The architecture of Copenhagen has undergone a revolution, launched by young and talented architects of worldwide renown.

We invite you to discover the interiors of several iconic buildings in Copenhagen, representative of the new Nordic architecture. By the end of these visits, all guided by specialists, we will have unlocked all their secrets for you.

Copenhagen is full of historic buildings whose function has been changed or have simply undergone major renovations. Some projects are especially ambitious and testify to the technical know-how of the Danes.

GASTRONOMY

The restaurants we select are representative of Danish cuisine from the most traditional to the most contemporary (new Nordic cuisine). We make reservations at exceptional restaurants in the neighbourhoods and buildings we visit. We always make meal breaks an architectural experience, choosing places that represent Danish design, culture or the urban experience.

CLIMATE / ENVIRONMENT PLAN / PRESERVATION OF HERITAGE

To introduce the local environmental policy, our contacts in Copenhagen municipality can meet you to arrange private conferences.

Examples of hot topics:

  • Copenhagen, eco-metropolis : general presentation of the ambitious “2025 Climate Plan” and the means implemented to achieve it
  • Copenhagen, cycling capital : a proactive policy to encourage cycling – The City as “creator of the environment”
  • Alternative management of rainwater – preservation of heritage, renovation, sustainability – Adaptation to climate change (flooding of public spaces …) and local development plans.

It is possible to combine the above presentations with guided tours :

  • Visit of an office building with low energy consumption
  • Visit of low-energy buildings in the city centre
  • Visit buildings with green roofs
  • Reduction of energy consumption in the renovation of old buildings (Valhalsgade cultural centre and Haraldsgade district).
