Enghave Brygge is a waterfront area in the Southern Docklands of Copenhagen, Denmark. It is located between Teglholmen to Kalvebod Brygge to the north. An abandoned industrial site, a plan for its redevelopment was adopted in July 2013; the most prominent landmark in the area is the H. C. Ørsted Power Station. The land is owned by JM Danmark samt By & Havn; the plan for the area has been created by Juul Frost Arkitekter, Gröning Arkitekter and Danielsen Architecture in collaboration with the City. The area will comprise 2,400 apartments and about 37.800 square metres of commercial and retail space. A central element in the plan is the creation of a 700 metres long canal, Enghave Canal, which will be a modern equivavalent to Christianshavn Canal on the other side of the harbor; the buildings along the water will be located on 11 individual "islands". A greenspace will mark the transition to H. C. Ørsted Power Station. Enghave Brygge will be a station on the planned South Harbour Line of the Copenhagen Metro.
Bridges will connect Enghave Brygge to Teglholmen to the south and across the harbor to the southern part of Islands Brygge. Enghave Brygge is seen in silhouet st 0:42:28 in the first Olsen Gang film. In The Last Exploits of the Olsen Gang, Bøffen tries to make Egon "disappear and stay disappeared" by embedding his feet in a concrete block and dumping him into the harbor from a crane at one of the scrapyards on Enghave Brygge. Enghave Brygge is used as a location at 0:43:46 in The Olsen Gang on the Track. Enghave Brygge is used as a location at 0:28:00 in The Olsen Gang Outta Sight. Frederiks Brygge Local plan proposal
Enghave Plads is a central public square of the Vesterbro district in Copenhagen, Denmark. It is located. Enghave Plads was established. A playground was established on the site in the late 1880s at the initiative of architect and city council member Ferdinand Meldahl. Enghave Plads School opened on the square in 1892. Christ Church, completed in 1900, was the second church to be built in the growing Vesterbro neighbourhood. Boy with fiasco, a fountain designed by Jens Lund, was installed in the centre of the square in 1903. For many years the square played host to an annual fun fair. From its opening in 1902 Enghave Plads was the southern terminus of Line 3 of the Copenhagen Tramways, which operated between Melchiors Plads in Østerbro and the square by way of Nørrebro and Frederiksberg; the tram line was extended to Frederiksholm in 1915 and again from Frederiksholm to Mozarts Plads in 1937. The area on the other side of Enghavevej remained open land; the Royal Danish Horticultural Society established 478 allotments at the site.
They were moved and the small public Enghave Park was laid out under the direction of City Architect Poul Holsøe, who designed the red-brick social housing, built at the same time and borders the park on three sides. The square was renovated and pedestrianized in 1995; the 114-year-old chestnut tree, which for decades had dominated the square, was removed in October 2011 to make way for the construction of Enghave Station, a future station on the City Circle Line. After a merger with Mathæusgade School in 2008, Enghave Plads School is now part of Tove Ditlevsen's School. Both buildings were designed by city architect Ludvig Fenger. Christ Church was designed by Valdemar Koch in an Italian style, he designed the two residential buildings that flank it on both sides. The buildings on the north side of the square are from 1898 and were designed by Christian Mandrup-Poulsen. Jens Christian Kofoed contributed to the buildings around the square. A cluster of low buildings that were used by the tram workers have been converted into a kindergarten.
Westend is a street and Art Deco-style housing complex in the Vesterbro district of Copenhagen, Denmark. It links Vesterbrogade in Otto Krabbes Plads in the south, it is accessed through a gateway in the building at Vesterbrogade 65–78 and is closed to car traffic in the other end. Vesterbro was in the 19th century Copenhagen's principal entertainment district. Prostitution was legalized in 1866. On 9 March 1877 the Ministry of Justice issued a Resolution About Police Control With Public Women in Copenhagen, introducing a system where matrons were licensed to operate "public houses"; the police was authorized to refer the public houses to specific streets and Badevej became the principal brothel street in Vesterbro. The street was in 1886 renamed Knudsgade. In 1877, Copenhagen was home to a total of fifty licensed brothels with approzimately 300 "public women". "Foreningen imod Lovbeskyttelse for Usædelighed", a branch of "La féderation britnniqve, Continentale et générale", was founded in 1894.
Prostitutes were required to have individual addresses after brothels became illegal in 1901. A group of developers purchased a property further out on Vesterbrogade with the intention of creating a private street where prostitutes could operate from individual apartments. Construction began in 1903 but the plans were stopped by the so-called October Act which illegalized prostitution; the Westend complex became instead popular with actors and theatre people. The Westend complex was designed by the architect Albert Jensen who has worked for Ferdinand Meldahl and designed buildings such as the Magasin du Nord department store on Kongens Nytorv; the building is designed in the Art Deco with inspiration from Parisian architecture. Its most characteristic feature is the elaborate rough iron balconies; the interior of the gateway at Vesterbrogade 76–67 has since 2010 featured changing works of street art as a result of a street art project entitled "Wild at Westend". A book documented the result of the project in 2012.
Flamingo Bar was used as a location in the 1961 drama film En blandt mange'. Westend is a title of a 2007 novel by Jeff Matthews. Media related to Westend, Copenhagen at Wikimedia Commons
Vesterbrogade is the main shopping street of the Vesterbro district of Copenhagen, Denmark. The 1.5 km long street runs from the City Hall Square in the east to Pile Allé in Frederiksberg in the west where it turns into Roskildevej. On its way, it passes Copenhagen Central Station as well as the small triangular square Vesterbros Torv, it is one of the other being Nørrebrogade, Østerbrogade and Amagerbrogade. Vesterbroghade originates in the 12th-century country road that led in and out of Copenhagen's Western City Gate; the road passed Sankt Jørgens Bæk on its way to Valby and changed course. On 20 August 1624, Christian IV ordered that the road be cobbled, first to Vernedamsvej and all the way to Valby; the road was at this point called Alvejen ("The Public Road"= or Adelvejen but in 1650 the name was changed to Roskildegaden. Only buildings that could be burned down in the event of an enermy attack could be built outside the city's fortification ring and buildings along the road were therefore limited to a few inns and windmills until the middle of the 19th century when the city's old fortifications were decommissioned.
It is one of four such -bro streets. New buildings began to appear long the street in the 1850s; the Bing & Grøndahl porcelain manufactury opened on the street in 1853, In 1857, the Western City Gate was demolished and the road was widerned at the site which became known as Vesterports Hab. In 1866–67, Vesterbrogade was extended in a straight line from Tivoli to the Haymarket; the first section of the street, between the Vity Hall Square and the new Central Central Station, was laid out as a broad, tree-lined promenade. Among the buildings that were built along it, including Industriforeningen's new Exhibition Building from 1872 and National Scala from 1882. At the turn of the 20th century, Vesterbros Passage was the backbone in a westward expansion of Copenhagen's city centre. Most of the old buildings were replaced by larger ones over the course of the next decades. Industriens Hus is the headquarters of the Confederation of Danish Industries. An expansion and complete make-over of the building was completed in 2013.
Next to the building is the main entrance of Tivoli Gardens. Saxo Towers, a mixed-use complex consisting of four interconnected cylinders, is under construction on the other side of the street. Axelborg a bank building, now contains the headquarters of the Danish Agriculture and Food Council; the former SAS Royal Hotel, now operated by Radison Blu, was designed by Arne Jacobsen. His Egg and Swan chairs were designed for the building. AArbejdernes Landsbank has their headquarters in the so-called Panoptikon Building at No. 5. The small Savoy Hotel known as Løvenborg, is one of the earliest examples of the art nouveau style in Copenhagen; the building was designed by Anton Rosen who a few years also designed the two buildings that flank thDet Ny Teater in the same style. The Association of Danish Law Firms is based at No. 32. The Royal Copenhagen Shooting Society's former main building at No. 59 is from 1780s. It now houses the Museum of Copenhagen. A passageway in No. 65-67 opens the street Westend.
The former Vesterbro Pharmacy was built in 1853 to design by P. C. Hagemann, it comprises two buildings in the courtyard from 1883. One of them, a former laboratory building, now contains the cocktail bar Lidkoeb. Sorte Hest is the only surviving inn of the "four horses"; the building is from 1771. The buildings at No. 144 is the former Tvedes Bryggeri, a brewery founded in 1852. The two buildings facing the street are from the 1880s and were listed in 1980 while the production buildings to the rear are not listed. Bing & Grøndal's former premises, now called Bing's, has been converted into an office complex, it has a total floor area of approzimately 35,000 square metres. It is owned by Aberdeen Asset Management and was most renovated in 2015; the Liberty Memorial dates from 1797 and commemorates the abolishment of "Stavnsbåndet". Ole Christensen's sculpture The Flower of Vesterbro from 1990 stands on the corner of Vesterbrogade and Helgolandsgade. Værnedamsvej Dannebrogsgade Source

Banksy is an anonymous England-based street artist, political activist, film director. His satirical street art and subversive epigrams combine dark humour with graffiti executed in a distinctive stenciling technique, his works of political and social commentary have been featured on streets and bridges of cities throughout the world. Banksy's work grew out of the Bristol underground scene, which involved collaborations between artists and musicians. Banksy says that he was inspired by 3D, a graffiti artist who became a founding member of the English musical group Massive Attack. Banksy displays his art on publicly visible surfaces such as walls and self-built physical prop pieces. Banksy no longer sells photographs or reproductions of his street graffiti, but his public "installations" are resold even by removing the wall they were painted on. A small number of Banksy's works are non-publicly, sold through Pest Control. Banksy's documentary film Exit Through the Gift Shop made its debut at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival.
In January 2011, he was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Documentary for the film. In 2014, he was awarded Person of the Year at the 2014 Webby Awards. Banksy's name and identity remain unconfirmed and the subject of speculation. In a 2003 interview with Simon Hattenstone of The Guardian, Banksy is described as "white, 28, scruffy casual – jeans, T-shirt, a silver tooth, silver chain and silver earring, he looks like a cross between Jimmy Nail and Mike Skinner of the Streets". He began as an artist at the age of 14, was expelled from school, served time in prison for petty crime. According to Hattenstone, "anonymity is vital to him because graffiti is illegal". For 10 years in the late 1990s, Banksy lived in Easton, Bristol moved to London around 2000. Banksy is believed to be Robin Gunningham, born on 28 July 1973 in Yate, 12 miles from Bristol. Several of Gunningham's associates and former schoolmates at Bristol Cathedral School have corroborated this rumour, in 2016, a study found that the incidence of Banksy's works correlated with the known movements of Gunningham.
Lawyers representing Banksy commented on this study, but did not suggest that the paper's conclusions were flawed. In 1994, Banksy checked into a New York hotel using the name "Robin", in June 2017, DJ Goldie referred to Banksy as "Rob". There has been alternate speculation that Banksy is: Robert Del Naja, frontman of the trip hop band Massive Attack. Del Naja had been a graffiti artist during the 1980s prior to forming the band and had been identified as a personal friend of Banksy. Jamie Hewlett, English comic book artist and designer best known for the comic Tank Girl and the virtual band Gorillaz. Joanna Brooks, Banksy's publicist, denied this claim. In October 2014, an internet hoax circulated that Banksy had been arrested and his identity revealed. Banksy started as a freehand graffiti artist in 1990–1994 as one of Bristol's DryBreadZ Crew, with two other artists known as Kato and Tes, he was inspired by local artists and his work was part of the larger Bristol underground scene with Nick Walker, Inkie and 3D.
During this time he met Bristol photographer Steve Lazarides, who began selling Banksy's work becoming his agent. By 2000 he had turned to the art of stencilling after realising how much less time it took to complete a work, he claims he changed to stencilling while hiding from the police under a rubbish lorry, when he noticed the stencilled serial number and by employing this technique, he soon became more noticed for his art around Bristol and London. He was the goalkeeper for the Easton Cowboys and Cowgirls football team in the 1990s, toured with the club to Mexico in 2001. Banksy's first known large wall mural was The Mild Mild West painted in 1997 to cover advertising of a former solicitors' office on Stokes Croft in Bristol, it depicts a teddy bear lobbing a Molotov cocktail at three riot police. Banksy's stencils feature striking and humorous images combined with slogans; the message is anti-war, anti-capitalist or anti-establishment. Subjects include rats, policemen, soldiers and the elderly.
In July 2011 one of Banksy's early works, Gorilla in a Pink Mask, a prominent landmark on the exterior wall of a former social club in Eastville for over ten years, was unwittingly painted over after the premises became a Muslim cultural centre. On 19 June 2002, Banksy's first Los Angeles exhibition debuted at 331⁄3 Gallery, a tiny Silver Lake venue owned by Frank Sosa; the exhibition, entitled Existencilism, was curated by 331⁄3 Gallery, Malathion LA's Chris Vargas, Funk Lazy Promotions' Grace Jehan, B+. In 2003, at an exhibition called Turf War, held in a London warehouse, Banksy painted on animals. At the time he gave one of his few interviews, to the BBC's Nigel Wrench. Although the RSPCA declared the conditions suitable, an animal rights activist chained herself to the railings in protest. An example of his subverted paintings is Monet's Water Lily Pond, adapted to include urban detritus such as litter and a shopping trolley floating in its reflective waters; these oil paintings were shown at a twelve-day exhibition in Westbourne Grove, London in 2005.
Banksy, along with Shepard Fairey and others, created work at a warehouse exhibition in Alexandria, for Semi-Permanent in 2003. 1,500 people attended. In August 2004, Banksy produced a quantity of spoof British £10 notes replacing the picture of the Queen's head with Diana, Princess of
