36 Sankt Annæ Plads, Copenhagen, 1250, Denmark

Designed by Boje Lundegaard and Lene Tranberg, Skuespilhuset, Denmark's Royal Playhouse, is a landmark of modern Danish architecture and was completed in 2008. Partially cantilevered over the harbor, the building has a top floor entirely surrounded by glass walls as well as a bank of harbor-faciing windows on the lower floors surrounding the foyer, which runs the length of the building. The three theaters contained in the playhouse are enclosed in a "flytower" that appears to float over the glass portion of the building, and they host play performances ranging from Shakespeare's Hamlet to works by modern Danish playwrights.
