A bridge spanning a body of deep water, providing the only dry connection between two stretches of land, is one of the most powerful architectural experiences in the landscape. Our proposal for a construction on Marmormolen is both: a city gate and a bridge that links Marmormolen with Langeliniekaj, creating a new coherent area in the Port of Copenhagen. The idea is to create a structure which brings together a complex urban situation in a distinctive and diverse development with the possibility of including flexible and efficient business areas. The towers, bridge and the other building elements constitute one single, floating dynamic movement, characterised by the bold span across the harbour entrance in terms of both the plan design and the facade. Establishing a connection across the harbour radically improves public access and creates brand new opportunities for life and growth in the area.
