Will it Sustain?
Danish Architecture Centre
Copenhagen, Denmark
On view: February 07, 2014 - May 25, 2014

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.

By Harry Francis Mallgrave

In The Architect’s Brain: Neuroscience, Creativity, and Architecture, Harry Francis Mallgrave stays true to form by offering a thought-provoking historical commentary, which allows us to look at architecture in a new light. There is, however, one departure: everything is slanted toward the spatial effect on humanity’s neurological and emotional state.
