The question underlying this course is a simple one: Why does Copenhagen look the way it does? The answer is less simple, though. Cities are human artifacts whose structure, plan, and design have evolved over the centuries in response to ever-changing needs and ideas. Therefore, to grasp current Copenhagen, we embark on an exciting journey into European intellectual, artistic, religious, political, economic, social, technological, and military history.
