OMA stacks green glass boxes to create BLOX architecture centre on Copenhagen waterfront

An architecture centre, co-working space and apartments are housed within a development of stacked glazed blocks by OMA, which creates a “knot” around a busy intersection in Copenhagen.

Dutch architecture firm OMA was commissioned to design the development by the Danish philanthropic organisation Realdania back in 2006.
