The task was to design a Center for Nordic Culture in the center of Copenhagen. Program includes flexible indoor and outdoor exhibition spaces, a foodlab, and fashion boutique as well as storage and administration facilities.
The new building extends and compliments the existing conditions in both form and color. The playful use of color integrates Copenhagen’s cityscape while also representing the subtleties that each country in the Nordic region has. The blending of them together circulating around the site reflects the countries’ cohesive cultural qualities. Program radiates around a circular courtyard, reflecting this togetherness, creating a protected public space serving as its own microclimate as well.
