I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

Copenhagen harbor views

This is the harbor side of Noma, a restaurant in Christianshavn that is rated one of the best in the world.

I liked what I saw of the modern architecture in Copenhagen, though I didn't get to see much and none of it from the inside, but I also liked how they were repurposing the old brick buildings by the harbor. They do that in every city these days, but the contrast between the very neat, almost too pretty traditional buildings and the old brick keeps it from being precious.

Below is a section of the Black Diamond, a new building for the Royal Library, built in 1999. You can see through the glass atrium so the reflections make the building look as though it's floating on the water.
