A right for all, not a privilege for the few: that is the foundation that has shaped the history of Danish architecture. In its autumn exhibition Our Architecture, the Danish Architecture Center (DAC) is showcasing this story through the lens of star architect Vilhelm Lauritzen, and his most iconic buildings of the last 100 years. Lauritzen’s timeless designs have become part of the cultural heritage of Denmark – institutions that have borne witness to a society in a state of change.

Opening on 18 November, the exhibition unwraps the story of a quiet giant of modern design, who always insisted on a democratic approach to architecture.

By exploring Lauritzen’s defining projects like Copenhagen Airport, for which he designed the first terminal in the late 1930s, and the iconic Danish Radio House, the exhibition will set the scene for a tour de force of his architectural masterpieces and the lives lived within their walls.

Interactive installations will allow visitors to explore the architecture using new technology. Here, you can experience his designs with all your senses, and discover first-hand the impact that well-executed architecture has on the way we work, travel, learn and live.

When visiting the Danish Architecture Center in Copenhagen, be sure to explore the many architectural gems and contemporary projects in the city. Every week, Danish Architecture Center organises guided walking, boat and bicycle tours to the city’s historic gems and modern masterpieces, designed by architects like Bjarke Ingels, Henning Larsen and Lundgaard & Tranberg.

In 2023, Copenhagen will be named World Capital of Architecture, during which the Danish Architecture Center will offer a wide range of activities and exhibitions. Landmark venues, like Open House Copenhagen and other historic buildings usually closed to the public, will be opened for visitors. Plus, don´t miss the summer exhibition Copenhagen in Common, where the Danish Architecture Center will celebrate all the Copenhagen architecture we share.
