Rådhuspladsen Reflections

From time to time I like to upload Reflections-pictures, in which I show a building reflected in a glass facade.
Today another one in this series, that shows you Rådhuspladsen (City Hall Square) in Copenhagen, reflected in the building of the Greater Copenhagen Traffic Company (Hovedstadsområdes Trafikselskab, HT).
Actually it isn't the first time I show Københavns Rådhus (Copenhagen City Hall) through a reflection. The first photo can be seen here: Century Reflections.

Københavns Rådhus was designed by Martin Nyrop and built from 1892 to 1905. On 12 September 1905 the city hall was put into use officially. The tower of the city hall is one of the tallest buildings in Copenhagen: 105m and the architect got inspiration for the tower from the city hall of Siena, Italy.
The City Hall is the building, and tower on the left of the photo.
The other tower is part of the Palace Hotel.

Rådhuspladsen itself is located in the centre of the city, close to Tivoli and Hovedbanegården (Central Station) and in between H.C. Andersenboulevard and Vester Voldgade. Rådhuspladsen is connected with another big square, Kongens Nytorv, by the shopping street Strøget.

The building (just called HT-bygningen, HT-building) that I used for this reflection was completed in 1996 and is placed in the middle of the square. The building is quite disputed because of its architecture and location. But actually I like it, and not only because of this reflection.

Another view over the a square from a webcam can be found at the website of the Danish newspaper Politiken, that has its head office at the square.
Take a look for it here: Politikens Webcam.

I hope you like this picture!
