BIG’s design is on the edge of urbanity both physically and conceptually. The offices and retail at the lower floor provide pedestrian access throughout the complex’s entire footprint. Pedestrians have access to a path that transverses the roof of 8 Tallet as well, providing exercise and expansive views of the adjacent plains of Amager.  A short walk to the Metro provides access to the whole of Copenhagen — a city emerging as one of the greenest cities in the world. Here is a refreshingly interactive video explaining more.
