Danish National Maritime Museum
Helsingør, Denmark

Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) is usually not in the business of hiding things away. In fact, they tend to do just the opposite. So, the fact that they chose to bury the Danish Maritime Museum in Helsingør in the north of Denmark – the firm’s first realized museum building – at the bottom of a dry dock, is nothing if not surprising.

The Blue Planet
Copenhagen, Denmark

Dramatically placed a few meters above terrain overlooking the Øresund strait, Denmark’s new national aquarium in Copenhagen - The Blue Planet - acts as a connecting link between land and sea. The swirling curves of the building draws the visitors inside, just like the circulating currents of the whirlpool that inspired its shape.

The sprawling urban park, Superkilen, wedges itself into one of the most ethnically diverse neighbourhoods in Copenhagen, Nørrebro. It samples benches, street signs and other urban furniture from across the world in an effort to reflect the multi-ethnicity of the area’s inhabitants.
