Putting people first in Danish architecture is a tale that will be retold this spring at the Utzon Centre in Aalborg, Denmark. Seven of Henning Larsen Architects’ projects will feature in the exhibition, which was also exhibited as the Danish entry at the Biennale in Venice in the summer of 2016.
“Art of Many – the Right to Space” is an exhibition which focuses on socially unifying architecture through a collection of projects from more than 70 Danish architectural companies. The exhibition opens on February 9th with a panel debate on modern architecture’s social responsibilities, in which director and partner in Henning Larsen Architects, Louis Becker, will take part.
The theme covers those buildings which are central to the welfare society, meaning schools, hospitals and cultural institutions or public roads, bridges and railways that influence our landscape. In other words, they are buildings and constructions that contribute, and are crucial to, a healthy society and urban life.
The seven participating projects from Henning Larsen Architects are: Copenhagen Climate Resilient Block, SDU University of Southern Denmark – Campus Kolding, Harpa – Reykjavik Concert Hall and Conference Centre, Islamic Community Centre and Mosque in Copenhagen, Vinge City and Vinge Train Station, and Herlev Hospital.
The exhibition runs until May 28th.
