I Love Modern Architecture – Sky VIllage: Copenhagen, Denmark

Wonder how stable this building will be. MVRDV and co-architects ADEPT have won a competition to design a new tower in Copenhagen, Denmark. Sky Village is a 116 meter tall tower which combines single family homes and skyscraper to create a vertical village. Based on a flexible grid structure, the building is made-up of 60m pixels' or units, that are arranged around the central core of the tower and can be joined or re-designated to form larger spaces. The lower floors of the tower accommodate a public plaza with retail, restaurants and office units, while the middle portion of the tower leans towards the north and creates a variety of sky gardens along the terraced south side of the building. Aren't the sky gardens cool?

The terraced roofs create a village above the sky.
