TERMINAL CRUISE CROSS
This Terminal in the inner harbor of Copenhagen is probably the toughest project Ive been working on in my studies in architecture. Why? Because the new extension of Nordhavnen was fictive and non existing and the site is 1,1 kilometers long and have a width of 70 m, so the sense of scale was extremely difficult to manage. But after hard work, the result became this “Cruise Cross” Terminal of Copenhagen inner harbor.
Working with those extreme site lengths was a big challenge, but I did shape the building so when seeing in strong perspective from the arrival degree from a ferry, the building is an illusion of itself.
