Show Notes

Henning Larsen and Ramboll have unveiled a new large timber building for Copenhagen. The project, dubbed Marmormolen, will be one of the largest contemporary wood structures in Denmark and combine office, retail, and public programs on the Nordhavn waterfront. Surrounding the building will be  a green plaza, rooftop gardens, promenades, and a waterfront park. On this episode we speak to Riccardo Pedroni and Mikkel Eskildsen about the project.  Riccardo Pedroni is a Senior Structural Engineer in the High-Rise Buildings Sector at Ramboll who joined the company as Graduate Engineer in February 2014. He is Italian and has graduated at Politecnico of Milan in October 2013 with a final project dealing with the dynamics of an offshore wind turbine. Before graduating, Riccardo was involved as intern in City Life project in Milan for the whole summer studying the settlements of the piling foundation of Isozaki Tower and producing a feasibility study on a television antenna on top of the building.

Mikkel specialises in the early design phases where he has a particular focus on the creative process, concept and project development - from analyses to idea and building concept. Mikkel functions as lead designer for larger teams - both in competitions and in more complex co-creation developments processes with end users and investors. He is responsible for new business opportunities and collaborations in Denmark. He has won both national as well as international competitions, projects and exhibitions where his special ability to create both aesthetic, conceptual and realisable projects has been brought into play.
