Design and Ornamentation
To highlight the 2011 Christmas season, Tivoli created an elaborate Russian Christmas Village, complete with rides, shopping / dining experiences and an iconic central cathedral, in the heart of Copenhagen. This seasonal spectacle drew large crowds out into the cold to experience this themed holiday happening.
Taking cues from contemporary design the hybrid style of ornament and architectural features unify Russian and Tivoli motifs. This can be seen in the villages slot- together Russian roof tops which were created in birchply using a waterjet cutter.
Designed while working for Tivoli, in 2011.
