The Danish submission to the 16th International Architecture Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia presents a Danish approach to innovation through four projects selected by curator Natalie Mossin. The challenges posed by the built environment call for new practices, and the selected projects propose four highly differentiated solutions to sustainable development. As a framework for the narrative of experience-exchange and collaboration as prerequisites of genuine innovation, the Danish programme presents BLOX – Denmark’s new Freespace for architecture, design and sustainable development.
Every other year, architecture enthusiasts flock to Venice to see architects from all over the world present their challenging and inspiring ideas and projects at the legendary Biennale Architettura. The Ministry of Culture Denmark has appointed the Danish Architecture Center as commissioner of the Danish submission, and the submission is funded by the Ministry itself, the Realdania non-profit society and the Danish Arts Foundation Committee for Architecture.
“The four Danish projects showcase some of the specific strengths of the Danish architectural tradition; of interdisciplinary collaboration, and a very keen focus on sustainability. I greatly look forward to attending the Biennale Architettura 2018 and to discovering the synergies of the Danish exhibits at the opening of the exhibition in the Pavilion of Denmark,” said Minister for Culture Mette Bock.
