What would you bring from Copenhagen?
Instead of a random keyring or another one these cup… Clara Jullien and I we decided to bring a font in our suitcase.
Originally a viking fishing village founded in the tenth century, Copenhagen became the capital of Denmark in the early fifteenth century.
Beginning in the Seventeenth century it consolidated its position as a regional centre of power with its institutions, defences and armed forces. After suffering from the effects of plague and fire in the Eigtheenth century, the city underwent a period of redevelopment. This included construction of the prestigious district of Frederiksstaden and founding of such cultural institutions as the Royal Theatre and the Royal Academy of Fine Arts. After further disasters in the early 19th century when Nelson attacked the Dano-Norwegian fleet and bombarded the city, rebuilding during the Danish Golden Age brought a Neoclassical look to Copenhagen's architecture. Later, following the Second World War, the Finger Plan fostered the development of housing and businesses along the five urban railway routes stretching out from the city centre.
