I lived for a year with a US girl interning at Henning Larsen for a year. They did receive a symbolic pay, level was similar to SU (although we are talking about people with completed degrees, somewhere between 15 and 20 in total each year), but clearly not enough to survive on in Copenhagen. Their hours were completely retarded as well. They could easily start at 8 or 9 in the morning and continue until long after midnight, both on work days and weekend. Some weeks I didn't even see her at all, as she was gone before I got up and came back after I had gone to bed. Combine this with what I found to be a really bad working environment (harassment, backstabbing etc.), I'm glad I did not become an architect after all.

Fudan-Europe Centre for Modern and Comparative China Studies about to open in Copenhagen. I Wonder if the Chinese plans to build a cultural centre in Copenhagen are still in Progress.

China-Europe research centre opening in Copenhagen



April 4, 2013 - 14:02

The collaborative centre is hoped to allow European and Chinese researchers a better opportunity to study each other's cultures

A unique Sino-European research centre, a collaboration between China’s Fudan University (FU) and the University of Copenhagen (KU), will open its doors on April 16.

The Fudan-Europe Center for Modern and Comparative China Studies, which will open in KU’s Nordic Institute of Asian Studies (NIAS), will provide European and Chinese researchers with a better opportunity to study each others' social, political and economic systems.

“The University of Copenhagen has strategically invested in research on Asia over many years,” KU's rector, Ralf Hemmingsen, stated in a press release. “The new centre will considerably strengthen the university’s research and give us a prominent position in Europe within this broad and important field.”

While research collaborations between Europe and China has traditionally focused on the natural sciences, the Fudan Centre will instead focus on political and social issues.

FU's rector, Yang Yuliang, argues that this humanities-based collaborative research may provide Chinese and European researchers with new and novel insights.

“We hope that the centre will function as both a bridge and a platform for the exchange of views between European and Chinese researchers,” Yang stated in a press release.

The centre will have two directors: Geir Helgesen, who was appointed by KU, and Liu Chunrong, who was appointed by FU.

According to Helgesen, China is particularly interested in the Nordic welfare model.

“China has been studying our collective welfare systems in the Nordics for a long time, but now China is also looking more broadly at the classic Nordic social institutions, not least the underlying political culture,” Helgesen said.

The higher education minister, Morten Østergaard (Radikale), welcomed the centre, saying that it will also help develop Danish business interests.

“Our knowledge about China and the Chinese culture is important both for Danish knowledge and learning environments and Danish businesses and exports,” Østergaard stated in a press release. “That’s why it is really great that our researchers and students are given the opportunity to closely follow China. It is also positive that China develops a better understanding for European culture.”

According to Politiken newspaper, this marks only the second time that a Chinese university has established a centre abroad.

It's not architects alone that are guilty of this "crime".
http://www.information.dk/289734

It's something I really recent. Call me an utter conservative, but I hold it in high regard that people doing decent work should get decent pay. A full time job should secure a sustainable income.

This concept is ruining any notion of a meritocratic society. It's obvious that young architects with the financial backing from mom and pop, is more likely to survive an unsustainable level of pay.

The common belive is that other studios will value these interns more, because of their great CV and network. And it's also likely that that's how it is in this world. But this process will not yield the best architects. There is a fair chance, that a bright young architect with a poor bacground simply will have to go on the dole to survive.

Wasnt rly sure what thread to post this in.

Grønlands Handelsplads will be a new city space with outside serving. When the inner harbour bridge is finished it will add one more spot, where one can enjoy a beer, a cup of coffee, some food or a glas of wine

http://politiken.dk/ibyen/nyheder/ga...aabne-byen-op/

Great news imo. That area needs more cafes and restaurants. For a while the inner harbour hasnt offered much of anything:

- Hotel Admiralen. Decent quality but rather expensive and no afternoon or evening sun

- Skuespilshuset. More sunny and an A+ location. But at times its dificult to get a table

- Nyhavn. Just flat out terrible. Touristy and overpriced

- Custom House. Like Admiralen, decent quality but waaay to expensive.


With new areas on Kvæsthusbroen and now on Grønlands Handelsplads, we can only hope the addional competetion will have a positive effect on prices and quality

And I thought the population in Copenhagen was growing rapidly..

Stockholm is growing twice as fast as Copenhagen at the moment
Who want to live that far up North when you can move down to beautiful Copenhagen/Malmø

On the other hand, I'm not sure whether CPH would be able to absorbe such a high number of new inhabitants. Are there any limits to sustainable growth?

Well it's really a question about how you measure it.
The growth in copenhagen is estimated to around 100.000 in the next 20 years. This growth is only in Københavns kommune, which is actually only a small part of the metro area.
According to Wike the population in copenhagen in the metro area is 1.950 thousand on an area of 3.030 Km3.
In stockholm the population in the metro area is 2.119 thousand on an area of 6.519 Km3, so a much lower population density in stockholm than in Copenhagen.
The growth estimate for copenhagen is for Københavns kommune, an area of only 66 km3.
what area is the estimated 500.000 growth in stockholm for? compared to a growth in the total metro area in copenhagen the groth of 100.000 could easily be much higher.
So it's really hard to compare apples and bananas. Furthermore Copenhagen is much more visited by tourists.

Not sure I follow your argumentation. Growth is not really a question of density. However you twist and turn thinks, Stockholm has a considerably higher Growth than Copenhagen. But considering that they have a much higher national population to harvest from, much higher immigration rates and higher economic Growth, that should hardly surprise anyone. But being one of our most important markets (and one of our closest Allies when it comes to values and politics), it is a very positive thing that Sweden grows. Copenhagen also get more and more strategically located in Europe when Sweden and Norway grows.

The problem is that they arent talking about growth rates, but nominel numbers. Copenhagen will growth 100.000 stockholm will growth 500.000. Copenhagen will be on an area of 77 km3, but what about stockholm?

growth rates is about an increase in population for an given area, but you cant compare an incease of 500.000 in perhabs 6000 km3 to an increase of 100.000 in 77 km3 and conclude that the first is growing much faster.

Am I the only one who always chuckles and finds it amusing when swedes talks about the Stockholm "metropolitan area" of 6.500 Km2? As a comparison Sealandia (Sjælland) is 7.000 Km2 with 2.2 million inhabitants.

So the Stockholm "metropolitan" area has a density similar to Sealandia.... Come on now, thats just ridic!

Haven't checked the numbers, but I think pretty much all of the growth of the Copenhagen Metro Area is within the borders of the municipalities of Copenhagen and Frederiksberg. So basically the absolute growth numbers for Cph Metro Area and Cph municipality are almost the same...

Actually the metro area consists of fast growing cities as Roskilde, slagelse, Køge etc. too., including these the numbers for copenhagen would be a lot higher. If you compare population growth in the region you should perhaps include malmø and skåne as well, etc etc.

Anyways, the fact is that you cant really compare it. Both cities are growing, but that stockholm is growing twice as fast isn't true. Logically stockholm would be one big constructionsite then.

The two cities are very different, Stockholm is beautiful as Dj4life says, and copenhagen is more metropolitan and international with high density and many tourists.

Stockholm is wonderfull.

Its only natural that Swedish metro areas are growing fast and faster than danish metro areas

- Sweden has a strong economy, more jobs are created in the metro areas and thus they have a strong trend of people moving towards the cities

- Sweden has softer immigration laws, leading to increased population. Immigrants also tend to settle in cities as opposed to rural areas

- Sweden has a higher fertility rate. In the past 10 years the danish fertility rate has hovered between 1,7 and 1,8 and is now back to 1,7. The Swedish fertility rate has increased from 1,7 to 1,9 and was as high as 2 in 2010. 0,2 doesnt seem like a big difference, but it matters quite a bit.


If the current demographic developments continue in Sweden, we should see tremendous growth in not only Stockholm but also Gothenburg and Malmö/Lund. Which is by the way a very very good thing for Denmark. It is not a competetion and larger populations in Sweden (and Norway) means better opportunities for danish exports and thus the danish economy.

GO SWEDEN!!!

The two cities are very different, Stockholm is beautiful as Dj4life says, and copenhagen is more metropolitan and international with high density and many tourists.

If we consider the municipalities around the "5-finger plan", ie municiplaties in which the citizens have less than 45 minutes of transport to the center of Copenhagen, the growth is massively concentrated around Copenhagen and Frederiksberg municipalities

Here is the numbers as of 1/1-2007 and 1/1-2013. The 3rd row is growth in absolute numbers, and the final row is growth in percentages.

As is seen, about 65.000 of the 102.000 new inhabitants in that area is in Copenhagen and Frederiksberg. The municipalites close to the center such as Gentofte, Gladsaxe, Glostrup also have higher growth rates compared to outer municipalities.

Hillerød, Køge, Roskilde have all seen nice growth rates in last few years, and certainly will see quite a bit of growth in the coming years, as will Egedal and Frederikssund with the new cities they are developing.

But Copenhagen municipality is the big locomotive here, and will be for the next 20 and 30 years at least. Untill they run out of space to develop or until the current demographic development changes

Edit: cant copy paste from excel


These are the numbers:

Thanks, I was too lazy to do that...

But actually the suburbs and the metro cities have higher growth, than I remembered - I have to admit that.

Still like you say, the growth is very concentrated on the municipalities of Cph and Frederiksberg.
