29 June - 1 October. As part of the Louisiana's series of events focusing on architecture, identity and culture, this exhibition highlights how identities and cultures are reflected in contemporary Nordic architecture.
The show focuses on three themes – place, community and urban space – with part of the show examining the role of the welfare system in 20th-century Nordic architecture.
It also identifies how, in the past, city planners were most concerned with efficiency while the architects of today concentrate more on establishing social spaces and incorporating the environment into urban plans.
The exhibition includes the theories of Danish architect and consultant Jan Gehl who advocates improving the quality of urban life by re-orienting city design towards pedestrians and cyclists.
Tues-Fri 11.00-22.00. Sat-Sun 11.00-18.00
