Copenhagen in Common is about what we have in common – namely architecture. It is what frames our lives. A good place to live, work and learn. A nice place to hang out. A safe place to move about. In the exhibition, we present a wide range of Danish architects who are designing Denmark now and in the future.

So Danish!
