Amager Bakke.

The brief for this competition in Copenhagen called for a new waste treatment facility to combine the advanced technical equipment that is required with a building of great architectural value. This is in contrast to many of the recently built power plants which are merely functional boxes wrapped in a skin with the aim of hiding the contents and operations taking place inside.

BIG’s approach to the design was to utilise the volume required to unite the facility and open this up for the visitor. In addition a ski area and observation deck was designed into the roof plane of the centre creating a new breed of waste-to-energy facility that is economically, environmentally and socially profitable.
