DR-Byen unites under the same roof all production and transmission of TV and radio programmes of the Danish Broadcasting Corporation (DR) in the new Ørestad city. The overall plan was inspired by the Middle Eastern Kasbah, allowing people to walk between the four segments, which are separated by a canal cutting across the site.
The four segments are:
1) The largest building with reception, TV-studios, work spaces etc.
2) A building with a large, central open space housing the DR News Room and Sports.
3) The smallest building housing administration and Copenhagen Regional Radio.
4) The DR Concert Hall with the chararistic blue facade.
Viewed from outside, the Concert Hall does not attract much attention with its rectangular facades covered in blue fabric, but in the evening the facades are illuminated by projected images. However, the facade conceals an enormous meteor, a split second before it hits the bare field. This is how the building was imagined by the French star architect Jean Nouvel, who made this form a distinctive feature of the foyer, where the "meteor" can be seen hovering in the air as a shell surrounding the largest of the four auditoriums.
