A waste-to-energy plant is underway in Copenhagen. The structure is designed by Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) in collaboration with SLA Architects. The project is still in the process of being completed and it presents an example of how urban architecture is adapting to encourage active lifestyles within the parameters of the urban jungle.

An artificial ski slope is being installed on the roof of BIG's waste-to-energy plant. The run is 90 meters in height and 400 meters in length. It turns at a 180-degree angle to accommodate the silhouette of the building it rests upon. The slope features a vibrant green palette that will not get dirty easily and will communicate the sustainability-focused practices of the waste-to-energy plant.
