Danish architect Bjarke Ingels has announced plans to create an 18-storey pagoda at Tivoli Gardens theme park in Copenhagen, Denmark.

The new structure, which will be built as an extension to the park’s 126-year-old Tivoli Castle, will house the H. C. Andersen Hotel (named after Danish fairytale writer, Hans Christian Andersen).

Calling the project a “hybrid”, Ingels also said it would bridge Copenhagen’s “past and present”, serving as an “archive of unrealised dreams”.

The scheme will also see the nearby Vesterbrogade area transformed into a pedestrian- and cyclist-friendly recreational space.

The 10,400 sq m expanse will be designed by urban planning group Gehl, who said it would help to “renew and diversify public life”.

Speaking on the announcement, Lars Liebst, CEO at Tivoli Gardens, remarked: “Only through projects such as this can Tivoli stay relevant for future visitors. It has been proven time and time again that depending on Tivoli’s historic charm is not enough.

“Change is in Tivoli’s DNA, it is our heritage, and Tivoli has always hired the best architects to make sure that new additions will stand the test of time because we are building for the future.”
