14/01/2013 - The exhibition In Dialogue with the World opens on 17 January 2013 at the esteemed exhibition venue, the Danish Architecture Centre (DAC), in Copenhagen, Denmark. In Dialogue with the World shows how architects today engage far beyond aesthetics when designing buildings.
At the exhibition, three distinguished Danish architecture companies – SHL - schmidt hammer lassen architects, Henning Larsen Architects and ADEPT – invite visitors to listen to their accounts of what it is like to work in the field of architecture in the 21st century.
With the titleGive more, the schmidt hammer lassen architects’ part of the exhibition uses eight selected projects as examples of how buildings, aside from being beautiful, give more.
"In the exhibition, we focus on architecture as a tool for designing the framework for life. For schmidt hammer lassen architects, architecture is not a goal in itself. It is a means to create positive changes for people, places and communities. Architecture should not only be beautiful to look at, it should make a difference," according to founding partner of schmidt hammer lassen architects, Mr Bjarne Hammer.
The selected architecture projects are presented through photographs, models and texts. Additionally, the exhibition integrates film clips and quotes where users, clients and reviewers express their experiences with the architecture, thereby connecting the intention of the architecture to reality.
The exhibition will run from 18 January to 10 March 2013.
