Famous Copenhagen architects, BIG (Bjarke Ingels Group), have created a journey through time with FORMGIVING.
Comprised of chronologically arranged imagery and miniature versions of the world's most innovative structures, this three-part exhibition explores how Earth was shaped over billions of years until today. It stresses architecture's potential and value in society and visitors of all ages are encouraged to play, build, and create their own future cities in the Golden Gallery. Everyone is welcome to get hands-on with robots, AI, 3D printing, and much more.
Change is constant, and Capture Your City seeks out the evolution of Danish cities and communities by examining how things change – for better or for worse.
By displaying the best photos by architectural photographers, aspiring snappers, and students from around the country, this exhibition presents Denmark's lesser-seen details. Open your eyes to gentrified places, old-world architecture, and spaces which developed out of necessity – from Aarhus to Aalborg. Gain a new cultural understanding of Danish cities via this exhibit which acts as a perfect snapshot of Denmark in 2019.
Denmark is rather proud of its architecture, and the Danish have positioned themselves at the forefront of modern building design on a global level.
The Danish Architecture Center (DAC), located at the Tetris-like BLOX building in Copenhagen, celebrates this achievement by being an ideal place to discover, build, play, and explore the fundamentals of Danish architecture.
Learn the importance of inventive architecture and design through dynamic exhibitions which trace the effects urban development can have on communities. Delve into Copenhagen's architectural past, the city's current state of living, or predict global future trends via intriguing exhibits.
