    In Denmark, important aspect of urban planning is to think about what constitutes quality in urban space and about the atmosphere of a space. There is a strong tradition of focusing on inclusion, on accepting the other and welcoming ideas that we have not yet had. It is also reflected in the development of public spaces and it opens new doors for designers. Cirkelbroen was designed by artist Olafur Eliasson and is a gift from Nordeafonden to the City of Copenhagen. The bridge is made of five circular platforms, and it contributes to a larger circle that will form a pedestrian route around the harbour. The zigzag design of the bridge brings people closer to the water and encourages them to slow down a little and take a break. The Infinite Bridge (Gjøde & Povlsgaard Arkitekter) was built for the international biennale, Sculpture by the Sea 2015 in Aarhus. It has a diameter of 60 meters and is positioned half on the beach and half in the sea. Walking on the bridge you experience the changing landscape as an endless panoramic composition. It re-establishes the historic connection with the Varna Pavilion that sits on the hillside above the beach, and offers a new perspective on the relation between the city and the surrounding landscape.
