由于全球金融危机而被迫停工了11年之久的The Wave公寓项目已于日前竣工。该项目位于丹麦的瓦埃勒，由建筑事务所Henning Larsen主持设计。
Following an eleven-year construction period interrupted by the global financial crisis, Henning Larsen’s The Wave apartment building in Vejle, Denmark has finally reached completion.

Construction on the 14,000 m2 complex, consisting of 100 apartments, began in 2006, following an architectural vision of five consecutive wave-shaped towers lining the water along Vejle Fjord. However, the global recession of 2008 interrupted construction after the completion of only two towers. They stood unaccompanied along the waterfront, the first chapters in an unfinished story.

尽管只完成了两座塔楼，The Wave公寓的第一阶段仍然引起了国际上的广泛关注，并屡获殊荣。2009年，公寓被丹麦贸易杂志Byggeri誉为“年度住宅楼”；2012年，公寓荣获ABB欧洲杰出建筑师论坛奖（又称绿叶奖）的创新建筑奖；2013年，公寓又斩获了久负盛名的Civic Trust Award建筑大奖，这也是51年以来，丹麦建筑师首次获此荣誉。
Even though only partially completed, the first stage of The Wave drew international attention. The two towers were named ‘Residential Building of the Year’ by Danish trade magazine Byggeri in 2009, followed by an ABB LEAF Award for innovative architecture in 2012, and the prestigious Civic Trust Award in 2013 – The first time a Danish architect won the award in 51 years.

The Wave公寓内有一个开放的公共码头空间，建筑师将其打造成了一个社交和住区中心，使其在充满活力的瓦埃勒水滨持续地散发着魅力。本项目于2015年重新开始施工，剩余的三座塔楼依次完工，实现了Henning Larsen最初的设计构思。五个标志性的山峰屹立在瓦埃勒峡湾之上，The Wave公寓楼代表着建筑层面上对当地传统和地理环境的致敬。
The Wave incorporates an open, public pier – establishing it as a social and residential hub, and an enduring presence in the vitalization of the Vejle waterfront. After construction efforts were re-initiated in 2015, the final three towers are complete – fulfilling Henning Larsen’s original vision. Its five iconic crests rising above Vejle Fjord, The Wave stands as an architectural tribute to local heritage and geography.

“瓦埃勒的周边是连绵起伏的丘陵地带，这在丹麦是十分罕见的，” Henning Larsen的合伙人兼设计总监Søren Øllgaard解释道。“The Wave公寓不仅为瓦埃勒的城市天际线增添了新元素，更反映了周边地区的地形特点。我们认为，该项目的设计将我们的当代设计手法和强烈的当地元素完美地融合在了一起。”
“The land surrounding Vejle is unique for its rolling hills, which are an uncommon sight in Denmark,” explains Søren Øllgaard, Partner and Design Director at Henning Larsen. “We designed The Wave as striking new presence in the Vejle skyline, one that reflects and embodies the surrounding area. We feel our design merges our own contemporary designs with a strong sense of local identity.”
