Urban Rigger
Copenhagen, Denmark

Urban Rigger, a Danish housing startup, has responded to Copenhagen’s affordable housing shortage by proposing a use for the largest undeveloped area of the city center - the harbor itself.

If BIG have their way, Copenhagen’s harbor will soon be dense with floating shipping containers hosting young academics.
