The opera house in Copenhagen made it to my favorite architecture in a second. It is monumental because of it’s size but by using mostly glass the architects kept some lightness. The location is also open and airy, and with it’s overhanging roof the building sort of floats above the sea which is quite an accomplishment for a building of this size. For those still wondering: yes I’m an architecture student and even though it means so much work I love it more every year. :)
Denmark was always very high on my ”Would love to visit” list, but I have never been until this September. And to be honest it was every bit as good as I expected. It’s many canals are similar to Amsterdam but I loved Copenhagen more. It’s somewhat more open and lighter and you are more in touch with the sea.
