- COBE, Our Urban Living Room
The heart of the work of Cobe, Danish architecture firm founded by Dan Stubbergaard is architecture as a social driver. A fundamental element of this is the way they see the city as the living room of our lives, a place we experience every day, a place where we feel at home.
Of course, to really achieve this, you need an illuminated approach like Cobe's to the city and to architecture. For the not so lucky people who don't live in Denmark, you can find out all about it in the book “Our Urban Living Room” published by Arvinius + Orpheus Publishing that accompanies the exhibition at the Danish Architecture Centre (DAC), Copenhagen.
An in-depth study of the Danish capital and of life through an attentive look at the projects and processes of Cobe to tell the story of Copenhagen's architectural development and of how this in turn affects the living conditions of its inhabitants. So we're talking about completed projects that can be seen both in the exhibition, part of which is at DAC, and another in the Cobe offices a short walk away, at the Paper Island and also directly in the city, to enjoy the mood of these works live.
The city as a space to experience, as a “living room”: the title itself gives you the idea of the kind of architecture that Cobe proposes (link kindergarten), in other words, an architecture where you feel right at home, like in your living room, a place where you can be yourself and that you can share with friends and family.
