Traveling in Copenhagen (part 2)
The second day in Copenhagen I have devoted modern architecture. Even bad weather and drizzling rain, did not prevent me to take the bike and go explore new neighborhoods of the capital of Denmark.
I woke up in the morning, and there ... RAIN! Petty, nasty, drizzling dozh.
In the center built a beautiful glass boxes.
He took the bike and went to the south. Look, what a wonderful road. What makes such a beautiful way? Nothing unusual noticed? There are no wires! Yes, the wire - it is a real misfortune of Russian cities. Throughout the civilized world has long wires hidden under the ground, and we are like a spider web hanging over the streets. Right bicycle path.
The metro station. Trains without drivers, go automatically. Purely. No wires. Beauty.
From this picture, most compatriots will fall into a stupor. That's impossible! In the photo a terrible traffic jam. For machines by just one row, despite the fact that the road is wide. NOBODY! No bastard does not leave in the lane for public transport. No one is going along the path for cyclists. Note that the intersections is also free. NOBODY not enter an intersection if the traffic jam ahead. This is particularly evident in the background, there's a big gap between the intersection and cars 100 meters, but they are free and no one there is not climbing. By the way, the streets are covered in Copenhagen hanging lamps. In the town there are almost no lampposts.
3XN architects in 2011 opened the largest congress in Copenhagen tsenr - Bella Sky. The building is 75 meters in height with 25 floors include a hotel, convention center and office block.
Interior. The walls are covered with living plants. It looks very cool.
Or is the parking. House Mountain. Created by the architectural bureau Bjarke Ingels Group in 2007! 33 000 square meters consisting of 10 floors of parking. Parking on the roof cascading down apartment. Each apartment has its own garden.
This building is "8" in plan resembles a bow tie or a figure eight with sharp corners. The project was designed by the international architectural bureau Bjarke Ingels Group.
Complex 8 House is located on the edge of Ørestad in Copenhagen. object size of 61 sq. m. m, it includes the residential part, as well as offices and shops.
The building also includes two courtyards, separated by a cross-bridge, where the premises set aside for the public space.
Another interesting set of social housing - VM house, designed by the architectural bureau PLOT. The name of the complex gave his plan: it consists of two buildings, which are respectively in terms reminiscent of letters V and M. This is an interesting configuration allow maximum light to provide homes and create a large number of variants of apartment layouts. In particular, the sharp corners of the "letters" of the architects placed a triangular plan studio intended for young childless couples or singles, and on bends - elevator core.
In the courtyard a huge BBQ picnic with connection.
Another social housing.
Many people have asked how to make the yard without shells and parking lots? Very simple :) In the photo, by the way, trash containers. Near them are carts to residents it easier to bring their garbage.
Lamps and dumpsters in another yard. No wires and fences. Lawns are doing on the sidewalk level or slightly below. Dirt and land with lawn does not get on the track, so pure.
Another example of the track. Lawn at her. On the sides izhet two grooves for water. After every 5 meters rainwaters lattice. The very path of natural stone. Plates are big, convenient for him to walk with a stroller and walk on his heels. There are no puddles. This track is done correctly.
Top view of the area near the house. Everywhere stone.
On the bridge trashcan for dog poop :)
Children's playground in the yard.
Bridge over the canal.
LED lamp post. Himself a pillar covered with solar panels, batteries inside. Day of charge - all night shines.
All paid parking even in yards. It is right. Parking has to be paid everywhere. To translate into rubles, multiply by 5 crown left rates on car parking in the courtyard, right in the parking lot "house-mountain". Day Outdoor parking cost 400 rubles, 250 weekend.
I went to the Freetown Christiania. This is partly self-governing, the unofficial "state within a state." Christiania, contrary to opponents among the Danish authorities, has a special semi-legal status in Denmark and partial independence. In fact, this whole block, drug addicts and seized govnaryami. I do not know what else to call these lovely people.
Residents of Christiania proclaim its goal "to create a self-governing society in which every individual is responsible for the welfare of the whole community. Society must be economically self-sufficient, and to be steadfast in the belief that the physiological and physical destruction can be prevented. " While only got dirtied the whole quarter.
The artist admires his creation.
Christiania is a quarter of Copenhagen, which are only two entrances. The inputs are large stones are cleaned several times by the government, but returning to the place of the inhabitants of Christiania. The permanent population of about 1,000 people, there are hotels, restaurants, cafes, shops, a secondary school. Residents Christians observe their own laws, independent of the laws of Denmark. Among them: bans on cars, theft, hard drugs, firearms and bulletproof vests. The main street is a Pusher Street. On it there is a trade in soft drugs and banned photography. Ahead seen considerable cameras with strikethrough. Prohibition enforced strictly enough. On the approaches to the street a lot of guards who are asked to clean the camera in a backpack and close the lens cover. Watch phones. Theoretically removed, of course you can, but do not need. People come here to take drugs. Residents of Christiania guarded primarily them.
The range of street stalls drugs. These trays are every 5 meters.
In February 2011, the Danish Supreme Court decided on the quarter Christiania squatters, allowing all evicted. According to the verdict, they do not have rights to the occupied their current territory, which belongs to the state. In April, the police conducted a raid there to identify drug traffickers, Christiania population outraged actions of the police. Guardians of the order started throwing cobblestones and empty bottles on the streets quickly emerged barricades. In response, police used tear gas.
August 15, 2011, the BBC reported that Christians have received from the authorities of a semi-autonomous status. Under the new law, the residents of Christiania have the opportunity to buy the land below cost, and the rest of the ground state will rent.
Beautiful tower drawbridge.
Locals celebrate St. Patrick's Day, and swim in the canals.
By the way, the bike had to take on the rental at the hotel. It is strange that in almost no rentals. Bike for a day costs about 1500 rubles.
