Snøhetta - World Architecture
Danish Architecture Center
On view: June 18, 2015 - September 27, 2015
One of the most renowned architecture firm in Scandinavia, Snøhetta, is exhibiting throughout the summer at the Danish Architecture Centre in Copenhagen. The exhibition gives a unique insight to the talented people, crazy projects and the alternative thinking that have gained this Norwegian architecture firm worldwide fame.
Best known for the Bibliotheca Alexandrina in Egypt and the Opera House in Oslo, Snøhetta has since then worked on numerous projects that have made them one of the most prominent architecture firms. These days, the firm is working on the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, urban space renewal of Times Square in New York and a cultural center in Saudi Arabia called the King Abdulaziz Centre for World Culture amongst other projects. Furthermore, their first project in Denmark is on its way - they are designing an addition to the art museum of Ordrupgaard north of Copenhagen.
The exhibition at the Danish Architecture Centre is inviting you to step into Snøhetta's office, workshops and universe. The exhibition is characterised by the Norwegian landscape, by Snøhetta's connection to art and culture and by their particular love for craftsmanship traditions as well as the new material possibilities brought about by modern technology. The core of the exhibition is a sensory workshop where visitors can touch, smell, see and hear how the many projects develop from concept to concrete work. In photos and films, visitors are met by the Snøhettas who guide, involve and explain. As something entirely unique, visitors will have the opportunity to step into a virtual model and experience what architects are capable of without the help of technology - namely seeing the physical space on its own.
Visit the exhibition from 18th of June until 27th of September 2015.
