MAG / High-Square Magasin

Following the opening of its new subway, copenhagen will receive a new breed of public space: høje torv is a 3000m2 square on top of magasin du nord, a large department store  facing kongens nytorv, in the heart of the city. the square is an oasis that will combine the benefits of space, air and unprecedented views with a highly urban program including outdoor cinema, a drop-off for cars and taxis, cycle routes, cafes and stages… The sequence of spaces is orchestrated as a cascade of squares that runs down the building all the way onto the sidewalks and neighbouring squares.
