Exhibition period

June 19 - September 27, 2015



Snøhetta is a mountain in Norway. It is also the name of the most talked-about architectural firm in Scandinavia. At this exhibition you could bring your children to the family exhibition, “On Top of the Mountain”. Explore Snøhetta’s workshop and have a go at building your own 3D architectural landscape models.

How does an architect get a building to melt into the landscape? In the exhibition, “On Top of the Mountain” on the second floor of the Danish Architecture Center, you and your family could enter a Snøhetta landscape of mountains, clouds, beehives and houses. It was an opportunity to explore and experience how the architectural firm, Snøhetta, go about building houses in landscapes – not only for people, but for animals too.

Then you had an opportunity to build your very own 3D Snøhetta architectural model in diorama landscapes. The diorama helps make our models come to life: the light can change from day to night and things can move around.The exhibition was shown at Danish Architecture Center in 2015.
