Noma to open as “urban farm” in Copenhagen

Famed restaurant to be reborn on disused land in 2017
It has won the title of best restaurant in the world four times and has transformed the Nordic (and Baltic) culinary landscape. Now the Copenhagen restaurant Noma has revealed that it will close at the end of 2016 and be reborn as an “urban farm” in 2017.
Chef René Redzepi told the New York Times this week that he plans to reboot Noma in a formerly industrial part of the city near Christiania – converting disused land into an urban farm.
It will include a partially floating farm and a greenhouse staffed by full-time farming employees. But the new Noma will be designed tastefully too, by star Danish architect Bjarke Ingels.
“We’re just finding our way,” Redzepi said, “even though it has been successful, even though it has had media attention and all that.”
Before the closure of the current location, Redzepi and co. plan to relocate temporarily to Sydney, Australia, between December 2015 and April 2016.
