The praise for the museum continued in 2015 with the Luigi Michelleti Special Commendation Award, and National Geographic named it one of the ten places most worth visiting for its architecture. Designed by the renowned Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG), the museum is located underground, built to show off the old dockyard into which it is built. Glass-covered corridors form bridges across the huge dried dock, incorporating the new into the old, while the dock itself has been left untouched. “It’s become our biggest, most breath-taking installation,” says Frederikke Møller, the museum’s head of communications.
