Operahus i København under construction in 2002 – five yellow cranes, opposite Amalienborg

One of the key buildings in Dokoen is the Danish National Opera House:

In 2000, the A.P. Møller and Chastine Mc-Kinney Møller Foundation donated funds to build an opera hall in Copenhagen, report BuroHappold Engineering. Five years later, in January 2005, this state of the art performance venue was officially opened on the historic island of Dokoen in Copenhagen harbour. BuroHappold Engineering supported Henning Larsen Architects and Danish engineers Ramboll in creating this modern masterpiece.

Working across structural, mechanical and electrical aspects of this project, our team were presented with a variety of challenges. These included realising the 32 metre long cantilevered roof that soars out over the arrival plaza, and ensuring optimum acoustics and visitor comfort levels inside the foyer and main 1800 seat auditorium.
