Completed in May 2017, the 17 story building transforms an old grain silo into one of the main references and examples of the urban development in Copenhagen.

Gallardo Albajar met with the team from COBE and the building’s developers to get an inside look at the site. In a four hour session, the photographer captures the silo under different lighting and weather conditions. The images reveal the unique angles of the building’s façade and emphasize the materiality and geometry of its various spaces.
