I think it looks rather cool, both futuristic but also a bit steam-punk like in a way.

Me pinguem et nitidum bene curata cute vises, ...Epicuri de grege porcum (You may see me, fat and shining, with well-cared for hide,—...a hog from Epicurus' herd. Horace)

When the Second Schleswig War was over in 1864, the Danes living in Schleswig and Holstein all of a sudden had become Austrians and Prussians and after 1871 Germans, citizenship-wise. From now on, they were forbidden to fly the Dannebrog, the Danish flag, red with the white Scandinavian cross, on their farmsteads and came up with a rather curious idea to show their allegiance: out of Holsteinian and Jutlandian marsh pigs, Tamworth and reddish Angeln Saddlebacks, a 36’tall and 770 lbs a race of red pigs with a white saddle on their backs was bred, thus coloured like the Dannebrog. The pigs were called det danske protestsvin or Danish Protest Pigs and from now on, the Dannebrog was not flying but running about the Danish farms.

Today, det danske protestsvin is one of the endangered domestic animal breeds with only 140 pigs alive worldwide and institutions such as the Arche Warder in Schleswig-Holstein, a centre for the preservation of domestic animals threatened with extinction (https://www.arche-warder.de/en/index.php) and a few zoos do their best to keep the breed alive. And a few found a new home in the open-air enclosure of the #wunderkammer  to preserve the memory of an unusual and very creative form of non-violent resistance.

The picture of the three little protest pigs below was taken by Silke (eska2203_Sil) on June 17th, 2011 at the Gelsenkirchen Zoo and found on https://www.flickr.com/photos/8930168@N06/5922947287

På Nørrebro ligger Osramhuset, der stod færdigt i 1953. Det er tegnet af Karl Wiedemann Petersen for Dansk Osram og frem til 1980 havde firmaet til huse her. Huset er det første i København, der er opført i chockbeton. Et materiale der giver elementerne en tæt og ensartet struktur. Osramhuset, der er erklæret bevaringsværdigt, er nænsomt istandsat og er nu et kulturhus ejet af Københavns Kommune.

På det ydre Nørrebro finder man denne velbevarede industribygning fra 1932, Kaffebrænderiet Merkur. Jeg har kopieret fredningstinglysningen fra 1994 nedenfor, så I kan se hvad der fx kan ligge bag en fredning. Jeg er glad for at bo i et land, hvor vi som regel passer godt på vores kulturarv.

"Kaffebrænderiet er et typisk og velbevaret eksempel på denne bygningstype. Med sine skorstene og vinduesfattige facade afspejler bygningen sin funktion som kaffebrænderi. Bygningen er tillige et karakteristisk eksempel på den rationalistiske/nyklassicistiske stil i mellemkrigstidens fabriksarkitektur."
