Three Michelin stars ⭐⭐⭐ That is how many the Danish restaurant Noma just received from Michelin Guide.

“To us, this is an achievement that solidifies Copenhagen as one of the best places in the world for restaurants right now,” says Noma.

Fun fact: The name Noma is short for the two Danish words “nordisk” (Nordic) and “mad” (food) 🐟 🥬

Did you know that Scandinavia’s largest wind farm, “Kriegers Flak”, was inaugurated in Denmark last week?

The new offshore wind farm has a total capacity to cover the electricity consumption of 600,000 Danish households and is expected to increase the Danish annual electricity production from wind turbines by approximately 16% 💨

The wind farm is located 9 to 25 miles off the Danish coast in the Baltic Sea 🌊

In 2019, the Danish Arts Foundation commissioned artist duo Gamborg & Magnussen for the Cabbage Patch - Denmark’s first official submission to the Chicago Architecture Biennial. 🥬

This year, Denmark once again has a participant in the Biennial, the project Soil Lab.

The project is led by a team of three architects, James Albert Martin, Eibhlín Ní Chathasaigh, and Anne Dorthe Vesterand, and one designer, Maria Bruun. It involves two main efforts: The making of structures out of bricks, rammed earth, and ceramic tiles; and the construction of spaces for communal gatherings.
