Denmark - Copenhagen - Gemini Residence crossing 01

Whilst quite small in the frame this shot is still strongly dominated by the MVRDV designed Gemini Residence thanks to the lead-in from the bridge, the sunlight catching the glass balconies and the way the clouds frame it.

 

From Wikipedia : "Dansk Soyakagefabrik (English: Danish Soybean Cake Factory) was a soybean processing plant establishing in the Islands Brygge area in 1909. It produced oil and animal feed and grew to the largest employer in the area, in the 1950s employing 1,200 mainly local workers. The two silos now converted into Gemini Residence were built in 1963. After the plant closed in the 1990s, the area was redeveloped to a new district with both residential and office buildings. The conversion of the two seed silos was carried out from 2002-05."
