Why we love cph #welovecph

This is (right now anyways) my 500th pic almost 7 years to the day on #insta 🙌🏼🎉 #Copenhagen was beautiful yesterday #Rundetårn #captainhemotravels #denmark #skyline

Not just the arbitrary expression of subjective aesthetic taste by some architect, seeing these houses yesterday at Emanuel Olsens Vej made me think of how current societal ideologies are reflected in the psychical surroundings. In the 1920ies and 30ies, people like Le Corbusier when designing houses thought of the modern, free individual in terms of anonymity, openness, and accessibility. Today, “individual freedom” expressed in architecture finds its way mainly through secludedness, the (illusion of) total “inclusion”, and complete confusion (which even adhere to some of the recent buildings by the otherwise brilliant and visionary Bjarke Ingels Group).
The question is: What society do we want? Here architecture is equally important as it is, with a formulation borrowed from French sociologist Pierre Bourdieu, capable of “instilling a whole cosmology, an ethic, a metaphysic, a political philosophy.”

Today, I just went by some of the most remarkable buildings in all of Copenhagen. In a beautiful way, they tell the old story of the historical fate of avantgardism: Ridiculed by its contemporaries, but worshipped and adored for its visionary darings by “the future”.
The embodiment of functionalism as inspired by Le Corbusier, the houses on Emanuel Olsens Vej were considered “too modern” when they were erected in the 1930ies, and nobody wanted to live in them (leaving the architect and the workers who built them with no other choice but to live there themselves). Today, of course, things have changed.
I might add that political visions of a future society are also ridiculed today as ever before. I find salvation in stories like the one told in this street...

A photo taken today at the Freetown of Christiania in Copenhagen. This shot made me think of the current status of contemporary capitalism: As the hitherto most advanced form of revolutionary force in terms of changing human society throughout history, as Marx pointed out (which is often forgotten by many “socialists” today), present day capitalism has now become an obstacle for what must be regarded as a desirable development - removing everything in its way, waiting in the shadows to take over the last pockets that so far remain “uncapitalised”. Resisting isn’t enough - we must fight for alternatives!
