Photographer's Note

The corner between the two squares Amagertorv and Hjbro Plads is right in the centre of old Copenhagen, most tourists will pass this spot.
During the last thirty years city life has changed a lot in Copenhagen from being in the street because you had to, to being in the street because you want to.
This development can to a large extent be attributed to research conducted at, and ideas generated at, the Royal Academy's School of Architecture in the department of urban studies under professor Jan Gehl.
I'll certainly recommend his writings if you want to learn more on the subject of how urban planning affects urban life.
The skyrocketing income and standard of living during those thirty years is of course also an important part of the new city life, a cup of espresso at Cafe Europa on this corner is not cheap.
