Metropolis, Copenhagen

The new "Metropolis" apartment house at "sluseholmen" in Copenhagen, designed by "Future Systems" (UK) and "Kasper Danielsen Architects" (DK).
The building was originally supposed to be 60 meters tall, but because of smoke from the nearby H C. ├śrsted power plant, it will only be 40. Since the power plant will be closed down in four or five years, the architects are toying with the idea of building a module that could be placed on top of Metropolis at a later date.
