Høje Gladsaxe is a public housing estate located approximately 10 km. northwest of Copenhagen's centre, constructed 1963-66. The original plan was to make a mix of highrise and low-dense buildings, but the Nature Conservacy Association succeeding with the preservation of the nearby Utterslev Moor meant that buildings could not be erected as close to the water as planned, and instead the project was modified in favour of higher buildings. It features almost 2000 apartments, institutions and shops. The estate was technically and in tems of dwelling a culmination of the architecture and landscape ideals of modernism, and its clear, radical shape created a counterpart to the lower New Town of Albertslund Syd erected at the same time outside of Copenhagen. During the 70s Høje Gladsaxe developed to be an area for the lower class.
