Denmark - Copenhagen - Tuborg Havn - Horten Headquarters sq

This frame-filling shot of the Horten Headquarters by 3XN Architects shows the unique solar self-shielding facade constructed from a fibreglass / travertine composite panel. The gently undulating facade angles views towards the adjacent canal whilst shielding the glazing from direct sunshine. The uneven lighting on this is created by reflected sunlight from the adjacent Saxo Bank HQ also by the same Architects.
