Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark, is famous for its pedestrian and bicyclist friendly roads, so much so that other countries borrow their practices to emulate in their own areas. But this new construction takes public transportation routes to a new level. The harbor city will soon hold a bridge suspended roughly 213 feet in air between two towers. Designed by Steven Holl Architects, an American firm located in New York City, the project already has contentions in regards to the feasibility of bicyclists. For one, you would have to load your bike into an elevator just to access the bridge, and then bike across, only to subject yourself to the same condition. However it does resolve the issue of placing residential areas by transit stops—a rule for developments in Denmark—and allows for ships to still pass by within the acute gulf.
