Danneskiold-Samsøes Allé 51
What will Copenhagen look like in 5, 10 and 15 years’ time? What is the future of the city as a residential city according to the projects that architectural firms are designing right now? And what role does housing play in a city and a welfare society that are undergoing change?
The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Architecture, Institute of Architecture, Urbanism and Landscape, in collaboration with the Danish Building Research Institute, AAU, opens a new big exhibition about tomorrow’s housing in the metropolis of Copenhagen.
Exhibition opening: Wednesday 18 March 2015 4:00 pm.
The exhibition: 'Housing and Welfare – Homes | Ensembles | City' opens at Holmen on 19 March and can be seen through to 14 May 2015, supplemented by a big international housing conference during the spring.
Cities are growing, and rural municipalities are being depopulated at an increasing rate. While rural municipalities are under pressure, big cities are challenged in terms of their infrastructure. The population growth poses ever-increasing demands on the Copenhagen area as a metropolis where business, family, cultural and leisure life need to work in new ways, matching the Danes' life today and tomorrow.
50 housing projects in the making
The exhibition provides an insight into the housing projects that are in the pipeline at architectural firms for construction in the metropolis of Copenhagen within a few years. More than 50 projects from architectural offices, researchers and study programmes.
