A cityscape lecture in Copenaghen >>>>>>>>>>>>>> The BLACK DIAMOND

The Black Diamond is an extension of the Danish Royal library in Copenaghen, designed by the architects Schmidt in 1999, Hammer and Lassen. The nickname “Black diamond” is due to its shape and material: a sharp prism realized with black marble plates and glass. Broke up with the old library, the new building deeply relates with the waterfront as the façade reflects waves and ruffles.
