BIG : nice presentation of Copenhagen project

This is a nice video presentation, combining computer models on top of regular live action. It's in Danish, but subtitled, so we can even understand what is going on.

8H - The 8-House from BIG on Vimeo.

8-House is located in ├śrestad on the edge of Copenhagen. 8-House offers homes for people in all of life’s stages: the young and the old, singles, families that grow and families that become smaller. Instead of dividing the different functions of the building - for both habitation and retail - into separate blocks, the various functions have been spread out horizontally. The apartments are placed at the top while the commercial program unfolds at the base of the building. As a result, the different horizontal layers have achieved a quality of their own: the apartments benefit from the view, sunlight and fresh air, while the commercial merges with life on the street.
