Atlas of the Copenhagens

Joost Grootens Et Al

This publication explores the urban territories of Copenhagen, often identified as the world’s most sustainable and liveable city. Such claims position it as an opportune site to engage in a wider debate on contemporary urban ideals, prompting questions about the nature of sustainability and liveability. Yet the increasing authority attributed to city-ranking metrics prompts a second line of inquiry. How are the territorial and conceptual limits of a city drawn to define it as an object of measurement, and how does this impact our understanding of something as complex and manifold as a city? This series of texts, maps, and infographics offers reflection on these themes across multiple Copenhagens.
