Bjarke Ingels designed another heavenly dreamscape; this time it’s a energy plant that doubles as a ski slope.

The Waste-to-Energy Plant rises up over Copenhagen like a hulking  mountain, its winding roof transformed into a 333,700-square-foot  artificial ski slope, multiple runs all. The structure will incorporate  the “the latest technologies in waste treatment and environmental  performance,” the press release from Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) says, and  replaces the 40-year-old Amagerforbraending energy behemoth next door.  “Instead of considering the new Amagerforbraending as an isolated  architectural object,” the release says, “the building is conceived as  an opportunity to create a destination.”
