1. A house-to-go in 1970 and in 2015

The most read article within the architecture category was about the new concept house from VIPP, the Shelter. A house-to-go was reminiscent to Arne Jacobsen’s Kubeflex concept from 1970. Both houses can be placed anywhere you want it, and comes fully assembled.

2. Q&A with Harley K. Dubois from Burning Man

We met with founder of Burning Man Harley K. Dubois when she was in Copenhagen for Rising Architecture Week in September. Read about her thoughts on why temporary communities such as the Burning Man are a good idea.

3. Five Danish architects to watch

Many Danish architectural offices are enjoying international success these days. But which architectural practices should you pay particular attention to in the future? We set out to find five Danish architects to keep an eye on.

4. Copenhagen’s cool canal community

Sluseholmen is a modern housing project near Copenhagen’s southern harbour. Designed by Danish architectural practice Arkitema Architects and Dutch architect Sjoerd Soeters. Read more about the new community, which is reminiscent to Venice or Amsterdam.

5. OEO on Dinesen’s new Showroom in Copenhagen

We met with Thomas Lykke and Anne Marie Buemann from OEO Studio for a talk about their ideas and the concept for the design of Dinesen’s new showroom in Copenhagen.

6. Creating spaces – A Room within a Room

It is always interesting how you can get the most out of a room, and a new tendency is to create a room within a room. We had a close look at examples by norm architects, We make Space, AART Architects, C.F. Møller and Julien Franc Wahlgreen.

7. The Children’s Home of the Future

A new way of creating a children’s home was done by CEBRA architects, with their children’s home of the future. CEBRA’s vision was to create a new institution that encourages social relations and a sense of community while at the same time accommodating for the children’s individual needs. It should be a place children are proud to call home.

8. Urban Spaces combining Culture and Recreation

Superkilen by BIG and StreetDome by CEBRA architects are examples of an increasing trend in Denmark at the moment, where urban spaces with a lot of new possibilities are becoming part of our lives. People can come and relax with their family, or kids can hang out with their friends. All of these spaces have one thing in common: to create a space for inclusion – inclusion through a variety of activities.

9. 3XN Designs the New Headquarters for the International Olympic Committee

The International Olympic Committee’s new headquarters will be in Lausanne on the bank of Lake Geneva on a 24,000 square metre site. 3XN was selected to design the headquarters after an international architectural competition.

10. Copenhagen’s Panum complex goes green

The new Panum complex – the Mærsk Building – designed by C.F. Møller is a new landmark for both Nørre Campus and the city of Copenhagen. It is a Danish research center with international impact. The new Panum extension will be pioneering when it comes to its energy use. It will have Denmark’s most energy-efficient laboratories, in which waste energy from the ventilation system will be recycled as part of the overall energy balance of the building.

The goal of DANISH™ is to promote Danish architecture and design in a broad perspective, and demonstrate all the potentials in these fields.
