CLIMATE - Change for a Sustainable Future // Architecture, Design and Conservation

Free entrance - open all weekdays

An exhibition featuring 29 proposals for climate solutions in the fields of architecture, design and conservation from students and researchers at KADK. 

A pavement that can divert large amounts of rainwater from cloudbursts, a film about how the landscape of Denmark may evolve as the water rises and an app entitled ‘MEAT Challenge’ intended to help men in particular to minimise their meat intake.

These are just some of the 29 proposals for climate-challenge solutions, which students and researchers from KADK will be presenting from 5 September to 15 November.

More than half of the world’s population live in cities, and cities account for 75% of the world’s energy consumption. So it goes without saying that cities – together with architects, urban planners and designers – hold the key to tackling many of the challenges. For several years now, most of our students and researchers have already been addressing these issues with determination, and I have no hesitation in maintaining that Denmark and KADK are part of the global elite in this field.
Lene Dammand Lund, Principal at KADK

Denmark is a pioneer when it comes to architecture and design aimed at tackling climate challenges, and this autumn’s exhibition at KADK will show what lies in store for the not-too-distant future. Climate and global goals are also strategic priorities at KADK, and the exhibition features some of the best ideas for solutions in the fields of design, architecture and conservation.

The projects in the exhibition were selected by a committee whose members include Ida Auken, Chair of the Danish Parliament’s Climate, Energy and Utilities Committee, and the meteorologist and climate activist Jesper Theilgaard. The exhibition is supported by Crown Prince  Frederik and Crown Princess Mary’s Foundation and by Dreyers Fond.
