Most inhabitants of Copenhagen calls this building for "Bien" or "Suppeterrinen", "The Bee" or "The Soup Tureen". Take a look, and you can see why!
The man behind the building was the in Denmark famous architect P.V. Jensen Klint, most significant building he made was the church "Grundtvigskirken", Copenhagen.
Initially "Bien" was a waiting room for passengers waiting for the tram. Build 1904 - 1907.
Later it became a kiosk with sale of tickets. These days it is mostly for preserving the building and just nice to look at.
The area is called "Trianglen" - "The Triangle" - obviously because the open area has the shape of an triangle.
Last century "Trianglen" was start rank for hackney carriage´s, taking the inhabitants to the recreational area "Dyrehaven", outside the capitol.
Some of the restaurants at "Trianglen" can trace their history way back to those days.
"Bien" now a days has become the logo for this part of Copenhagen. Reading an job ad, surfing the internet or reading the local newspaper, you will stumble into the logo. The logo is as well wallpaper for this site.
