Odense: Fisketorvet

Odense is a city with lacks an overall sense of style and in many ways comes across as an anonymous provincial town. Most of the old town with single or two-storey houses was demolished during the 1960s so what we have now is an odd mix of buildings in very different styles, mostly dating from the late 19th century onwards. Odense definitively does have its gems but you'll have to look carefully to find them.

 

To most people, this is more typical: A 1970s brutalist structure placed at what used to be the city's busiest intersection. It could be any building anywhere. It fills its purpose, but the lack of grace is obvious.
