Copenhagen Copper Landmark
The copper clad Maersk tower is the University of Copenhagen's new landmark, an ultramodern research and teaching centre. The 15 storey building, covering 42,700sqm was designed by C.F. Møller in a remarkable architectural style.
The shape of the building and the choice of materials combine to create a design which works in dialogue with the building’s immediate surroundings – including the copper clad church tower of the Skt. Johannes Kirke and the existing Panum complex of the university.
TECU® Classic_bond and TECU® Classic_mesh are the materials of choice for the sophisticated design and construction of the triangular shaped facade elements, with perfectly matching window shutters. Seven different ‘contours’ were the basis for individual adaptations to the 15 storeys. The copper elements were cleverly prefabricated and installed, just in time with the progress of construction work, resulting in an attractive building skin of a striking new copper landmark.
