CopenHill receives 2021 World Building of the Year title

Located in Copenhagen, it is both a waste-to-energy plant and a ski slope

Earlier this month, Denmark’s CopenHill (Amager Bakke) won the 2021 World Building of the Year title at the World Architectural Festival. This, according to the building’s designer BIG - Bjarke Ingels Group, marks the first time that Danish project (and power plant) has received the prestigious title.

At the Awards Ceremony on 3 December, Programme Director of the World Architecture Festival Paul Finch shared that “CopenHill addresses the role of architecture in the new world or recycling and zero carbon”. That is, it combines aesthetics and function, housing a waste-to-energy plant, modern ski slope, climbing wall, and hiking trail.
