The Black Diamond in Copenhagen is an extension to the Royal Library. The building has a shiny, black facets mirror towards the sea and the sky at the harbour front.

A large incision cleaves the building into two formations and gives light to the atrium inside. The atrium connects the city with the sea outside as well as the old and new library buildings.

As light reflects from the sky and sea it throws back its rays across the surface of the Black Diamond building in Copenhagen.
