Few cities have embraced contemporary Architecture more – or better – than Copenhagen. Since the early 2000s, international architects, from Norman Foster to Daniel Liebskind to Zaha have all left their mark, yes, but Danish architects themselves can take much of the credit for Copenhagen’s forward-thinking design. Firms with short, hip names, like BIG and 3XN, are not just transforming Denmark – they’re on the cutting-edge of architecture itself.

Architecture photographer, Danica Kus, who recently shared with us her shots of the Serpentine Gallery Pavilion, has also shared another series, “Copenhagen Inspires,” which captures Copenhagen’s many architectural gems – from The Crystal to the Green Lighthouse  to Bella Sky Hotel.

See them, and more of her stunning images, after the break.

As our very own Architecture City Guide on Copenhagen put it: “The Danish attention to detail is absolutely stunning. Besides the wonderful historic architecture, Copenhagen is filled with contemporary architecture of the highest quality.”

“Remarkably, you rarely find the new clashing with the old. More often than not, the contemporary architecture in Copenhagen actually heightens the experience of the historic buildings and streets.”
