Dan Stubbergaard trained as an architect at The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Architecture, in Copenhagen. He founded COBE in 2006 and has since been the driving force behind all of COBE’s projects. These include: The Library in Copenhagen’s North-West (2011), Denmark’s rock music museum Ragnarock in Roskilde (2016), adidas’ HalfTime Pavilion (2018), Copenhagen’s Nørreport Station (2015), the urban development of Paper Island in Copenhagen’s inner harbour (2021), and the development of Nordhavn in Copenhagen, Scandinavia’s most extensive metropolis-development project in recent history (to be completed over the next 50 years).
Alongside his architectural practice, Dan has taught at The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Architecture, in Copenhagen, and is currently Visiting Professor at the University of Washington, USA. He lectures internationally, and has received several awards and honors including Nykredit’s Architecture Prize in 2012, The Dreyer Foundation Grant Prize of Honor in 2015, and the Eckersberg Royal Medal in 2016, awarded by Queen Margrethe II of Denmark.
