Instrument of Change: Library and culture house in Tingbjerg
Tingbjerg is a planned neighbourhood from the 1950s. Today it is a multicultural area of Copenhagen, where the citizens have been missing a place to assemble and engage with each other.
Now, the new library and culture house by Cobe Architects will become a new meeting point and strengthen the sense of community among local residents.
