Art of Many and The Right to Space

Now, the Danish contribution to last year’s Venice Biennale of Architecture is coming home to the Danish Architecture Center.

The exhibition does not just present the work of one Danish architect. It presents more than 70 architectural practices and in excess of 130 models, which together reveal the extensive social commitment and the humanistic approach that are the hallmarks of Danish architecture. You can also encounter one of the major advocates of humanistic architecture, Professor Jan Gehl, in a large-scale video installation.
