DAC Architecture Run
– Copenhagen Light Festival

Every year in February, the Copenhagen Light Festival starts. In collaboration with the festival, Danish Architecture Center organize a special architecture race, which takes place in the middle of the winter city of Copenhagen.

The route passes a number of the many light works that light up the city during the Copenhagen Light Festival. On the route and only this evening, you will also be able to experience works that have been created especially for DAC Architecture Run – Copenhagen Light Festival.

Run or walk the route together in the dark. When you reach the finish line, there is hot soup and fun at Bryghuspladsen. There is a prize for the best ‘illuminated’ runners.

What does it mean to build a habitat for a place other than Earth? The most basic elements on Earth such as air, stable temperature, water and food are not available, and must therefore be considered in the design of a lunar base.
