A beautiful building designed to take waste-to-energy technologies into the future, pushing Copenhagen, Denmark towards the goal of being carbon-neutral by the year 2025. An admirable goal to be sure, but that's not the coolest thing about this building.

This building was designed to be part of the community, part of the city. What better way to be part of the community than to build it with a park on the roof? Well, they answered that...they put a ski hill on the roof. Watch as Jesper Tjäder gets to take a run before the slope is open to the public.

The CopenHill project has been in the news for some time now and is finally set to open this summer. For more information about this amazing piece of technology, watch this short documentary from Audi about the building and the run that Jesper Tjäder took down it.
