Tietgenkollegiet (English: Tietgen Student Hall), named for Danish financier C. F. Tietgen (1829-1891), is a student residence built in new district Ørestad close to the centre of Copenhagen.
The building has a conspicuous circular shape, inspired by traditional southern Chinese Hakka architecture, and is designed by Danish architects Lundgaard & Tranberg in 2006. The design has won it a RIBA European Award.
The campus of the IT University of Copenhagen is architecturally impressive.  


Kvarterhuset in Jemtelandsgade 3 on Amagerbro in Copenhagen is a cultural center in Copenhagen Municipality 
The complex consists of an old industrial building designed by Georg EW Moller and built by master builder Christian Peder Berg Vienna in 1880 for the use of LP Holm Leaf Factories .


Opera at Holmen in Copenhagen is Denmark's national opera. It was opened by the Queen on the 15th January 2005 . It was designed by architect Henning Larsen and has Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller as a promoter, builder and patron.

The construction of the Opera has aroused debate about aesthetics , both in view of the location and the house's exterior. Recently it has emerged that the architect Henning Larsen thought of going from job due to disagreements between him and the giver, A.P. Møller og Hustru Chastine Mc-Kinney Møllers Fond til almene FormaalThe discrepancies between the two sides has focused primarily on the design of the facade of the Opera at the harbor, where Maersk Mc-Kinney Møller insisted on inserting steel beams within Henning Larsen Architects proposed glass facade. The large glass facade with the large steel band has subsequently coined the nicknames "grille" and "toaster"

The extreme cantilever on the canopy is certainly dramatic.  The location on the harbor is perfect, even though it prevents easy access for concert attendees.
