If the newly qualified architects have their way, in future we will see transformed urban spaces in the capital, sculptural museum architecture in the Faroe Islands, and widely spanning architecture that creates new formats and settings for the way we live and our everyday lives.

The new designers also address the surrounding world through lighting design for cemeteries, play systems for children, innovative fashion and graphic ingenuity – as e.g. in the series of new bank notes, which puts the ordinary Dane back on the notes in a 2014 version of the ploughman, the 500 krone note. This winter’s new graduates stand out as professionally strong individuals, but also as parts of a community. They work in an experimental and developing way – yet also in a pragmatic approach based solidly on their craft and the wider social perspective.
Graduation Winter 2014 demonstrates the qualified spearhead among the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts Schools of Architecture and Design’s 1,700 students.

“We hope that you will encounter and recognise our graduates in a great number of projects and solutions in the future. Our objective is that they will be able to contribute to new business and export successes, but equally that they will contribute to securing the framework for an attractive, sustainable life – in a way that will match people’s requirements. In this way, they can strengthen – both directly and indirectly – Danish competitiveness, which is currently in demand in so many places.
Give a great welcome to the new team. The standard is remarkably high and we are very proud to invite people to see 87 thoroughly researched and finished proposals concerning a whole string of challenges and problems that we come across in the world around us,” says Rector Lene Dammand Lund.

The backdrop is Holmen’s rough forge buildings at the heart of the campus that is shared by architectural and design students. The exhibition includes materials samples, sketches, films, digital models and products on a 1:1 scale.
