Denmark’s busiest transport hub

Nørreport Station in Copenhagen is Denmark’s busiest transport hub. It was originally established in 1916, modernised in 1934 and in need of fundamental renovation in 2012. Following three years of con- struction work, the station in the heart of Copenhagen has been transformed into an open and accessible urban space with clear focus on the needs of pedestrians and cyclists. The few buildings on the forecourt are built mainly in glass and have rounded shapes, providing room for the constant swarm of people and emphasizing the clarity and natural... more

John Belle
1932- 2016
“Many architects thought we were crazy. The profession came to preservation very, very slowly.”

John Belle helped restore several of New York City’s most important buildings, including Grand Central Terminal and the soaring Enid Haupt Conservatory at the New York Botanical Garden. Those efforts earned Belle and


 

the firm he co-founded, Beyer Blinder Belle, a reputation as guardians of the city’s architectural treasures. But when the same firm answered a call for conceptual designs for the World Trade Center site, it was broadsided by criticism from the public and the profession. Born in Cardiff, Wales, and educated in England, Belle moved to the United States in 1959, just in time to witness the destruction of... more
