What are your tasks as Chief City Architect of Copenhagen? I am an advisor to the politicians and to the administration, meaning that I see and touch almost everything that is built in the city. The question of climate neutrality is increasingly important in this regard. About 30% of the CO2 emissions in Copenhagen are related to the building industry and about 30% are related to mobility. To me, mobility is also part of architecture and city planning. Building metro stations, cycle lanes, and car-free zones in the city centre are very much about reducing the climate impact.
