Three for the price of 1 is an offer that few are able to resist and there is little hesitation when one arrives at Copenhagen’s waterside architecture center to discover three wonderful international exhibitions, all under one roof! Grouped under the provocative title ‘Will it Sustain?’ the three exhibitions; Behind the Green Door, The Banality of Good, and Shifts: The Economic Crisis and Its Consequences for Architecture, all represent the world in which we live in, in varied and captivating ways. Arcspace jumped on the curator’s opening tour to get a first-hand insight into all things sustainable.
