Contemporary Danish Architecture – Now and Then

Exhibition, talks and seminars at the Danish Embassy in London

                                       3 – 12 June 2014

The Darwin Centre by C.F. Møller

Arne Jacobsen’s
modernist embassy building in Sloane Street, itself a remarkable example of Danish architectural export, hosts an exhibition showcasing some of today’s foremost Danish architects. The exhibition shows some of the highlights of contemporary Danish architecture and gives a unique insight into the core values that Danish architecture embodies: a green, environmentally sustainable profile and an empathetic and democratic approach, in which good design and great architecture are not reserved for the elite.

The exhibition is divided into five categories representing areas in which Danish architecture and design excel internationally:
• The health and learning category
• Industrial and commercial architecture
• The culture category
• Urban development
• The housing category

Among the featured architect practices are:
• Henning Larsen
• C. F. Møller Architects
• JUUL | FROST Architects
• 3XN
• Bjarke Ingels Group
• Gehl Architects

Please note that due to security the exhibition can only be accessed in connection with talks and seminars and through pre-book only.
