Sometimes the simplest things are the most beautiful. The Copenhagen Harbour Baths, a design collaboration between local architects Plot and BIG, transformed a traditionally industrial harbour in the Islands Brygge district into the proverbial urban playground.

With its jutting diving platform and multi-tiered seating, it’s not only eye-catching, it’s a lot of fun!  The revitalisation of the harbour is thanks to the city’s investment in an environmental clean-up and modernisation of the city’s water treatment plants. Perhaps we should try this at home?
