An aerial picture of south western parts of Malmo in the foreground, the bridge, and Copenhagen in the background.

Nice modern architecture with the Alm. Brand Building standing out in the middle.

Nice photos DenverDane. Ever thought of how funny the name Alm. Brand is? I know this probably isn't the civic bolsterism that the person who started this thread had in mind but whenever I think of København, I always think of this one pic, taken by a friend of mine from Germany:


here's an interesting interview with the mysterious painter for those who can read danish- also has some more pics of his work:

the "pis flere penge væk" on the front of Kvickly is kinda overkill, though, if you ask me

Good old Nørrebro ( bought my first game consol ( Commondore Game System ) in that Kvikly some 16 years ago

The "shoplifting" tag get's a lot of attention - it's quite common to hear people talk about it on the bus when passing it...

I'm very anti grafiti and vandalism, so I dislike that one too, but it is kinda funny in a way...

Yeah, that's just crap... damn kids from the Ungdomshus - luckly they will soon be kicked out - and then they will be forced to "pisse flere penge væk" on renting a new place

I'm a big supporter of Ungdomshuset and i'll be pretty pissed if that actually goes through in december. Places like Ungeren and Christiania are what seperate Kbh. from all of the bland cities of the world, the city's own cultural landmarks. Without them, Kbh. is just a bunch of overpriced apartments with HTH kitchens on all too bland streets. Plus, from a purely practical standpoint, it provides affordable housing to people that otherwise wouldn't have anyplace to go and what they've given back culturally to the city more than pays the rent.

Ordnung muss sein!

Ungdomshuset and Christiania isn't cultural landmarks, it's goverment areas taken over by no good anarchists ( imo )

For Christiania the good part is it leaves room for some new high rises when we get rid of the last dopehead...

If people wants places to hangout and be alternative they should rent of buy such places like everybody else...

See, Kbh. is special because it has the foresight to give room to places like Ungeren and Christiania. Think of how boring the city would be if it was all HTH kitchens and fancy cafes. Christiania isn't about dope, its about experimenting socially, trying to find a better way to live as a society. It's a human-scaled place, made for people not money or cars or skyscrapers. The same for Ungdomshuset. Skyscrapers are dangerous to the idea of the human city- they steal light, create windtunnels and discourage use of the street, instead focusing on the building as a sort of status object. There aren't many other "alternative" places in KBh. because rent's so expensive and all of the city's been redeveloped for yuppies. You can't just start up a cafe or a folkekøkken cause there'd be no way to pay the rent without making the stuff there so expensive that people like students can't afford it. Also, it's almost impossible to find an affordable place to live without a professional job. Try finding a place to live on SU that's more than about 3*3m. Rooms go for 4000/5000kr. a month! Plus, why does Nørrebro need to be developed to look like østerbro? Why can't there be different places for different types? If people want an Ungdomshus then give em one. There's more than enough room in østerbro and christianshavn and indre byen for yuppies who want fancy apartments. Kbh. is big enough that there should be room for all, something that's fast dissapering.

Do you not believe that people shouldn't be musicians or artists? They add to society but usually don't make enough money to pay the rent. Many of the people who live in Ungdomshuset do these things. Without them, Denmark would be a much less cultured place. Just because you don't like their kind of music or art doesn't mean they shouldn't have the opportunity to make it. Not everyone has the means to make millions off it- they can still be a positive addition to society, though.

This is an interesting topic. I think i'll make an Ungdomshuset thread in S&B forums. Want to continue the discussion there?

Sure, I'll hold my answers until then..

But basiclly my opinion is that if they can't support themselfs they are ment to die out - it's the law of nature..

Prolonging evolutionary deadends is not alone pointless it's a waste of money that could have been spend on projects for the majority - the working class! ( me )
