THE CITY OF COPENHAGEN
The World Congress takes place in Copenhagen, Denmark, appointed UNESCO UIA World Capital of Architecture 2023. The whole city will be a vibrant stage of events and invitations to celebrate sustainable urban development – culminating in the World Congress at Bella Center in July. It is a city that mixes green mindset with ingenuity and fun. The city is built for bike rides, the harbour has been repurposed for swimming, parks, gardens and small green oases are sprinkled all over town. Copenhagen offers excellent opportunities to explore the city, whether by foot, bike or wheelchair.
Bella Center Copenhagen is well situated in one of Copenhagen’s newer districts Ørestad – close to both airport and city centre by bike or metro. You will see it as never before – a vibrant stage of unique meeting places, a celebration of universal design, explorative constructions and wayfinding to guide you.
Accessibility is our priority. Meeting rooms and larger halls have lifts available. Auditoriums can be accessed via stages. Service animals are welcome. Entrances to the venue are accessible.
NEW GUIDE ON DANISH ARCHITECTURE
The Danish Association of Architects has published a brand new guidebook entitled “A Guide to Danish Architecture – Towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals” . 60 Danish Architectural projects, contributing to one or more of the goals. As it says in the book’s preface ‘Architects have the power to change habits and behaviors when it comes to our built infrastructure and approach to the nature that surrounds us.’ These examples are hopefully a inspiration to create a better world, for all of us.
