Marc Jay, partner of WE, is one of the editors behind the book; Atlas of the Copenhagens, developed in collaboration with some of our talented colleagues and students of the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts / Schools of Architecture.
Launching on the 17th of April, Atlas of the Copenhagens explores the urban territories of Copenhagen, often identified in city-ranking indices as the world's most sustainable and liveable city. Such claims position Copenhagen as an opportune site to engage in a wider debate on contemporary urban ideals, prompting questions such as: What is sustainability or liveability? On whose terms are these concepts defined? What agendas are included or excluded?
The editors of the book: Deane Simpson, Kathrin Gimmel, Anders Lonka, Marc Jay and Joost Grootens.
The book launch takes place on April 17th 2018, 15:00 - 17:00 in Auditorium 5 at Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, Danneskiold-Samsøes Allé 53, 1437 Copenhagen K.
