Derfor synes jeg i virkeligheden, at diskussionen mere handler om hvorvidt det i Københavnsområdet overhovedet er interessant at dække områder og byer uden for det centrale København og det er vel i sidste ende subjektivt. En by af Helsingørs størrelse burde kunne bære sin egen tråd og dækker et langt større og mere velafgrænset område end så mange andre. Mman kan selvfølgelig så diskutere om den hører hjemme i 'Copenhagen' eller 'Denmark' afsnittene, men dér hælder jeg klart mod førstnævnte løsning som i alle tilfælde var den vi valgte i forbindelse med Roskilde og Køge.
'Thread or no thread, that's the big question'

Hvis den generelle holdning er den I giver udtryk for, så luk de tråde ned som synes at være overflødige og forstyrrende, eller lad dem få en stille død.

Det synes at være et evigt tilbagevendende spørgsmål hvordan og hvor omfangsrigt dette forum skal være, og hvordan det skal bygges op.

Der er aldrig lavet en overordnet strategi hvorvidt dette forum skal fungere som 1 - 2, ja måske 3 store tråde, eller i sin nuværende form hvor trådene > læs projekterne bliver synliggjort og udspecificeret i specifikke tråde der samlet set udgør det store net der hedder København, eller Aarhus for den sags skyld.

Jeg synes naturligvis godt om de mange tråde, dog er det ærgeligt at de mange gør at nogle ryger om på side 2 og 3.

There are approx. 35 threads pr. page. It would be nice if all the major popular threads could be on page 1.

This is not concerning Copenhagen only.

http://politiken.dk/kultur/arkitektu...-christian-iv/

It is an old well known story.
Basically, when there is no, or little democracy, the people in power can act fast, brutally and effectively. Be it a national state, a political party, a company.

Now, what makes this interesting, and unusual is, that the people in charge are the good guys, and the results are excellent.
So, what do we, as a high-profile democratic society, make of a well meaning non-democratic actor like Realdania, when we know how killing the democratic process can be on projects?

There is absolutely nothing undemocratic about Realdania. People - and that includes a legal person such as a foundation - can do whatever they want with their money within the boundries defined by our political system. They cannot do anything which fails to respect those boundries. When it comes to foundations, they do of course have to observe certain rules for what is piblic interest to get the tax adventages which led to their creation in the first place but apart from that it is just another private pocket, just like a company or a private individual. If they have too much to say in the architectural world, it is because others - the state and alternative foundations - are too abscendt. Uf you insist on bringing democracy into this discussion I'd say that it would be pretty undemocratic if someone were not allowed to do as they pleases within the boundries set up by our politicians.

Løsning på det påståede problem: Sig nej til Realdanias penge. Men det vil kritikerne nok heller ikke...
Kritikerne lader generelt ikke til at være tilhængere af privat ejendomsret eller have forstået hvad konceptet medfører.

I agree. And I have no quarrel with Realdania, on the contrary, I think, as you also indicate, that it raises the architecual bar in our society for the good of everybody, whereas the political system is too absent. I don´t insist, but if you, as I, is an actor in the marked, then you know that decisions follow the money, rather than democracy.

As you may, or may not have read, Realdania is not an fund, though often called so, but an association, and therefore Realdania is not under public supervision the same way as for example AP Møllers fond or Veluxfonden. They give away money, Realdania goes into the projects actively, and, as some of the quoted actors in the articlel mentions, they often take over the decision making of the project.
As long as we have some qualified people here, there is no problem, but what would happen if non-qualified people where in charge, as it happened with e.g. the Copenhagen opera (good businessman, bad architect)?

I am not on a quest. I just found the article raising some points in a sober way

Nothing wrong with taking the discussion, I just find the democracy angle utterly misunderstood.

If incompetent ("non-qualified") people were in charge, the same thing would happen as you see when a private company builds a butt ugly new headquarters: A great shame, a missed opertunity but also the way the (democratic) world works. Fortunately (but quite often unfortunately, though), our politicians are in a position to stop such bad decisions due to a legitimate concern for the public realm. That is what you saw with the Scandinavia hotel which was not deemed good enough for that location and height. Sometimes our politicians intervene, sometimes they don't. Sometimes our politicians should intervene and sometimes they shouldn't. That is where the democratic system comes in and in my opinion we only have a democratic problem when the democratic process doesn't work and the politicians make their decisions(good or bad) based on wrong arguments.

But everything starts with people's/foundations'/companies'/associations' basic freedom to do as they please with their money/land. Therefore I really don't see the problem in the fact that " in the marked, then you know that decisions follow the money, rather than democracy". The respect for private property rights is fundamental in our democracy (except for Christiania which seems to believe that tthey have rights but that others haven't)

We don´t disagree at all. And your example with the Scandinavia hotel is spot on, as an example opposed to mine.

My question at first was meant to be of a filosofical nature, based on the premisses of the article. And the article implies a democratic problem. So you really oppose to the journalists angle which is fair. The discussion raised in the article is also, though, still fair.

...in a democracy

By all means, that is why I wrote "Nothing wrong with taking the discussion". In genrral, I think it is very wong to pull the "undemocratic" card every time one disagrees whit something. I disagree with a lot of politicial decisions in Copenhagen but I don't consider them undemocratic and am really tired of a lot of nimbys constant misuse of the word as part of their manipulative rethorics.

Where I do see a democratic problem, though, is when the politicians form their opinion based on factually wrong arguments or on fear of an uninformed public opinion. Too aften we see that a few very aggressive and very loud individuals or organizations manage to spread often factually wrong views which get "adopted" by the media why are just after an "easy story" and report their views in the most uncritical manor. These views then tend to spread to a lot of other citizens/newspaper readers who are not really particularly interested in urban development but on the other hand very liable to believe that investors and politicians are corrupt and that change is always for the worse. The politicians then tend to change their mind from fear of the public opinion and the next election dau.

That is a democratic system that doesn't work. Representative democracy is based on the election of politicains who are supposed to be better informed than the average Joe could possibly be when making political decisions. That is of course very often the case but the derailing of the ptocess descripbed above is just seen far too often.

Some concrete examples:
* I remember a member of the local council in Valby who bragged about getting a reduction in density in the Christiansbro masterplan through. Fair enough but don't we get the other side - in the same article or in another one - that density is what is required to get life and local shops? Then the casual reader would be in a better position to decide which side he is on.
* I also remember a Tivoli nimby complaining about poorly designed modern buildings opposite Tivoli before anything was even known about their design and the need to distrub such lovely old buildings as the Panioptikon building - a butt ugly, modernist building which he would no doubt have objected to if it was proposed now. Why are such idiotic comments even reported by national media? It is simply not of public interest that someone finds a design bad before he has even seen it. And why don't we get the other side. And why don't the opposite view - that the clash between new and old often creates the most interesting urban spaces and that the area really needs an upgrade - get more coverage?

Of course it is uop to people in favour of urban development to make a greater effort to make temselves heard. The uimbu movement in Sweden is an example of just how well this can be done. But it is still a democratic problem if one side of the story - maybe even backed up by factually wrong arguments - get too much exposure. It also seems that people who complain are always a better story for the media than some boring technical discussion about substance. But the serious part of our media - which are fed a lot of "mediestøtte" because they are so important to our democracy - should more energy on talking to specialists than to passively report the views of random nay-sayers. That would, could and should qualify the debate and make our democracy work better.

I don't wish to politicise the SSC-forum (as we are all friends here, of course), but at the same time I could not let this statement go uncommented. My view: In terms of city development, you have a point, albeit a highly questionable one. In terms of the overall benefit for the world, you are dead wrong.

This, however, is completely true. Though I feel that the same goes for many other issues and is not limited to urban development.

Another spin-off from Noma (after Rekl) will open this summer. American chef Matt Orlando who has been heading Noma's kitchen for the past two and a half year open his own place in a former B&W storage building at Refshaleøen:
Quote:

Nomas køkkenchef går solo

Selvstændig. Efter flere år hos Noma vil Matt Orlando nu have sin egen restaurant - og den bliver ikke nordisk, eftersom han er amerikaner. - Foto: MARIUS NYHEIM

AF lars dahlager
Vi er på vej ud på en tilgroet mark på kanten af havneløbet i København, da Matt Orlando bøjer sig ned og nipper et lille mangefingret blad af en plante – en slags bregne i bonsaistørrelse.

»Se her, det her er en røllike«, siger den 35-årige vestkystamerikaner på engelsk. I hans mund lyder det som wrålleky.

»Dem bruger vi i maden på Noma hele tiden. Det er lidt vildt, at man kan finde dem i sneen midt om vinteren«.

Han kender bjørnepølsen
Sådan taler en kok uddannet på Noma, hvor alle, stor som lav, bliver trænet i at spotte råvarer i naturen – hvis man kan kalde en kunstig halvø lavet af murbrokker for natur.

Og Matt Orlando kender sine nordiske råvarer – sin havtorn, bjørnepølse og søpindsvin – bedre end de fleste.

Ansvar for 42 kokke
Han har de seneste to et halvt år været køkkenchef – altså daglig leder – på Noma, verdens p.t. mest trendsættende restaurant, så stifteren, René Redzepi, kunne hellige sig udviklingsarbejdet.

Han har haft toppositioner på steder som Thomas Kellers Per Se i New York og Heston Blumenthals The Fat Duck, før han overtog ansvaret for verdens bedste restaurants 42 kokke med militaristisk disciplin.

Men nu er det slut. Matt Orlando er stoppet på Noma og skal nu åbne, hvad der måske er årets mest ventede restaurant blandt hans kolleger.

Spis i værktøjsdepotet
Den kommer til at hedde Amass og får til huse her ved marken i et 60 år gammelt værktøjsdepot for skibsarbejdere fra B&W-værftet.

Det er et fantastisk sted med seks meter til loftet, originale værkstedslamper dinglede fra loftet og høje glasskydedøre, der vender ud mod marken og havneløbet.

Foran de store vinduer skal der anlægges en 500 kvadratmeter stor køkkenhave med grøntsager og krydderurter.

»Hvor finder du sådan noget? Den oplevelse, jeg vil give folk, er skræddersyet til det her sted og den bygning. Jeg kunne åbne en restaurant i New York eller Brooklyn, men jeg ville aldrig kunne få min egen grøntsagshave«, siger Matt Orlando, mens han gestikulerer ud mod marken ved havneløbet.

Refshaleøen er perfekt
Den tidligere snowboarder og skater fra San Diego, Californien, forelskede sig i Refshaleøen bag Holmen, første gang han så stedet.

Hele den tilgroede, rå industriæstetik, hvor der stadig ligger olieplettede pladesmede blandt de nyindflyttede designfirmaer, kunstneratelierer og øvelokaler for rockband.

Det er det perfekte sted til hans drømmevision:

En restaurant med knivskarp mad, der skal kunne konkurrere med eliterestauranterne og have kvaliteter, man forventer sig fra en tidligere køkkenchef fra Noma, men samtidig skal have en uhørt grad af afslappethed.

Prisniveau som en bistro
Amass skal samtidig være betydelig billigere end konkurrenterne – i bistroprislejet – fordi fokus vil ligge på retterne, ikke på at have en tjener per gæst.

»Du kigger i menuen og tænker, at det ser meget afslappet ud, men så begynder retterne at komme ind, og du tænker ’hvor er det, jeg er?’«, siger han.

OPSKRIFTERFrisk hverdagsfavoritterne op

Det uhørt afslappede kommer ved, at du måske selv skal ud og hente kødet fra grillen på terrassen.

Eller retten bliver serveret på et fad midt på bordet, og du skal selv plukke maden med fingrene, mens du snakker med en siddemand, du ikke kender.

Fællesbord med fremmede
Det sidste vil på et tidspunkt blive realiseret ved, at det centrale bord midt i lokalet har plads til ti mennesker, men du kan højst booke fire personer.

Du er med andre ord nødsaget til at dele maden med fremmede.

Til gengæld får folk, der booker sig ind på ’fællesbordet’, en anden, større og mere ambitiøs menu.

Håbet er, at det bliver fællesbordet, alle vil kæmpe om at få plads ved. Her, hvor de tilflyvende kokke og gastroturister vil sidde.

Ingen nysselige tallerkener
Det er den fornemmelse af middag med storfamilien på Sicilien, som Matt Orlando er så fascineret af. Ikke nysseligt anrettede tallerkener.

I restaurantens selskabslokale – et halv etage på første sal med udkig til hovedsalen – vil al maden komme ind i skåle og fade.

LÆSHer er manden, der suger Nomas berømte myrer op af jorden

Dels fordi det gør det betydeligt billigere at lave mad i topklasse. Dels fordi det giver en hel anden energi, når der kommer fade med torskehoveder på bordet, og folk skal plukke det knassprøde skind og kød fra hovedet med fingrene.

I familiens skød
»Når du spiser med din familie, kommer mor jo heller ikke ind med nøje tilrettelagte tallerkener. Jeg vil gerne bringe folk tilbage til følelsen af at spise i familiens skød. Topkokkene har en tendens til at glemme, hvad mad og spisning er, hvad formålet er«, siger han.

»Det er min vision. Jeg tror, at den ’fine’ restaurantoplevelse er ved at være forældet«.

Et scoop for København
Matt Orlando begyndte at kokkerere som et studiejob ved siden af high school, sideløbende med at han stillede op i snowboardkonkurrencer.

Men kogekunsten blev hans passion, og Orlando arbejdede sig hurtigt op i kokkeverdenen uden egentlig at have en formel uddannelse.

I 2005 arbejdede han som kok på The Fat Duck i England – på det tidspunkt verdens bedste restaurant ifølge listen World’s 50 Best Restaurants – og en dag kom Nomas køkkenchef, René Redzepi, på besøg i restauranten.

En tur i byen
Orlando og nogle andre fra restauranten tog i byen med Redzepi, de snakkede godt sammen, og René endte med at sige »kom og besøg mig«.

»For mig var Noma det perfekte sted. The Fat Duck var meget fremsynet og teknisk brillant, men også lidt syntetisk, mere teknik end produkt«.

»Det var på højden af den molekylære gastronomi, hvor alt var fokuseret på, hvem der kunne lave den cooleste skum, og hvem der kunne lave en gelé, der var varm, når du spiste den – alt det der.

Noma var også moderne, men dybt rodfæstet i råvaren og respekten for den. Det havde jeg ikke oplevet på den måde. På Noma var maden mere naturlig«, siger han.

Tilbage til USA
Matt var souschef på Noma i to år.

Så tog han tilbage til USA og arbejdede på Thomas Kellers berømte Per Se, hvor han lærte Kellers enorme evne til organisation.

I 2010 vendte han og hans danske kone tilbage til Noma. Denne gang skulle han overtage de daglige tøjler i køkkenet fra René Redzepi.

Det gjorde han, siger flere af hans kolleger, med en uhyre organiseringsevne, der gav en stor ro om rutinerne i køkkenet og frigav energi til at være kreativ.

Det største talent
»Matt er den fødte ledertype. Han er også en af de absolut dygtigste håndværkere, jeg er stødt på i løbet af min karriere«, siger Torsten Vildgaard, der på det tidspunkt var køkkenchef for Nomas testkøkken.

René Redzepi siger, at Matt vil blive savnet.

»I gennem de mange år, Matt har været hos os, har jeg altid set ham som måske det største talent«, skriver han i en mail.

Men Noma har hele vejen støttet og hjulpet Matt Orlando med at åbne hans eget.

»Det er et scoop for København, at Matt, som kan åbne en restaurant hvor som helst i verden, vælger os – en tendens, jeg er ret sikker på, at vi vil se mere til i fremtiden«, siger Redzepi.

Ikke nordisk mad
Tiden på Noma har givet amerikaneren nogle utrolige oplevelser.

At servere mad for forsamlinger bestående af verdens bedste kokke. At kunne bruge råvarer af en kvalitet uden sidestykke.

»En af de cooleste oplevelser var nok, da vi sad oppe på førstesalen omkring mødebordet med smagsprøver på myrearter fra hele Danmark og diskuterede, hvem der skulle lægge ud«.

»90 procent af myrerne smagte rædselsfuldt. En anden dag fik vi en pakke med et helt friskt elghoved, der stadig dryppede af blod, som en jæger fra Sverige havde sendt til os. Vi endte med at flå hovedet og forsøge at lave noget af kinderne«.

»Vi fik også en sending bjørneblod. Og hvad gør man så ved det? Man laver noget blodpølse. Det er en stor del af det at være på Noma. Hvor ellers får man bjørneblod ind ad døren?«, siger han.

På inspirationsrejse
Men Matt Orlando har tænkt sig at slippe det nordiske køkken.

Amass skal ikke være new nordic:

»Det giver ikke nogen mening. Jeg er ikke nordisk. Mine rødder er et andet sted. Så når jeg forlader Noma, tager jeg på inspirationsrejse til Japan, Australien og Brasilien. Ikke bare for at blive inspireret, men også for at genopdage mine tanker og holdninger til mad. For når du arbejder på Noma, bliver din hjerne fuldstændig indhyllet i Noma«.

Hvad den proces ender med, ved han ikke.

Ærlig mad
»Men folk skal kunne opdage i en ret hist og her, at kokken er amerikaner. Det skal være ærligt. Jeg vil f.eks. kunne finde på at servere spareribs«.

»Men det er måske ribben, der har været hængt i 30 dage i vores særlige modningsrum og derefter marineret i mælkebakterie-fermenterede blåbær og sous vide-kogt i tre dage og så grillet. Jeg elsker ideen om, at folk forventer spareribs og så smager noget, der er ulig nogen spareribs, de har smagt i deres liv«, siger han.

I køkkenhaven med champagne
Matt Orlando kan se Amass for sig i sine drømme:

Der er en god blanding af internationale og danske gæster. Folk rejser sig op mellem retterne og går rundt ude i køkkenhaven med champagne.

Kokkene serverer egne retter direkte til gæsterne. I en elevator på endevæggen tilberedes der kaffe. Der er larm og energi i rummet.

»Det her skal være en kokkenes restaurant, en af de restauranter i København, som er på gastroturisternes og foodiernes liste, fordi det er en helt anden oplevelse. Jeg har meget høje ambitioner. Jeg har hele mit liv skubbet, skubbet, skubbet på for andre folk, og nu er det tid til at være meget ambitiøs med min egen restaurant«, siger han.

Kender presset
Hvor bange gør det dig? Det er første gang, at dit navn personligt er på spil?

Det pres bliver ret stort, simpelthen fordi jeg er Nomas tidligere køkkenchef. Folk vil forvente sig meget. Men det er fint, den slags pres har jeg arbejdet under hele min karriere«, siger han.

Amass åbner ifølge planen 1. juli.
