COBE together with Jorton, SM Valmont, MOE and Krabbenhøft & Ingolfsson have won the international competition for a new promenade and pedestrian bridge connecting Esbjerg harbour - Denmark's biggest harbour as regards area - with the city center of Esbjerg. The 280 m long bridge takes shape as a branch gradually connecting and growing between the harbor edge and the city. Each turn offers new vantage points with unique views to Esbjerg, the historic surrounding landscape and the water front. 

 

The project will be completed by the end of 2016.

Two COBE projects, Nordhavnen and The Silo, are exhibited at the 'Housing and Welfare - Homes|Ensembles|City' exhibition at Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, Schools of Architecture, Design and Conservation in Copenhagen.

The exhibition focusses on future Copenhagen. A city that – like many other cities – has been through innumerable changes, expansions and renewals. These changes continuously invite all of us – scholars, practitioners, stakeholders and citizens – to examine and discuss the current state of urban and suburban developments; and to reflect on the future of our cities.

The exhibition opens today, 18 March 2015, and runs until 14 May 2015.
