The Cities Without Houses member and cofounder of Soundboks, who is based in Copenhagen, shares 27 of his favourite things

I’m keeping my fingers crossed that COVID-19 will soon be a thing of the past. When the world opens up again, I hope we won’t just return to the way things were before: overconsuming and taking things for granted. Instead, I hope that we’ll celebrate and appreciate our ability to travel, meet new people, and live our lives exactly as we want to. The 2020s have been quiet so far because of the pandemic, but collectively we’ll be able to make the remainder of this decade “roar” as loudly as possible.’
