When you come to Copenhagen by air, this is one of the landmarks. The Hospital in Herlev is the largest building outside the city. It is located about 10 km north-west from Copenhagen center.

Herlev hospital is one of the university hospitals in Denmark. It took 10 years to build and it was finished in 1976. The auditories to the left was ready for use in 1983.

The 25 stories tower has room for the patients and offices, and the low building in the back contains all the departments for treatment. The total area is 210,000 square meters or 2,260,000 square feet.

The grey concrete fits well to a grey and wet january day.

3 tanker om “Herlev Hospital”

  1. What? I’m disappointed 😉
    I thought for sure we would see a picture of the amusement park (Tivoli Gardens? I think that’s what it is, right? It’s been too long since I’ve been in Copenhagen)… or the Mermaid statue!
    But, I like what you chose for the assignment. Interesting architecture.

  2. I can see I really need to visit Herlev hospital, it seems it has some very interesting lines worth photographing! 🙂
