Kids’ City

Exhibition period

February 7 – ultimo October, 2020

Bring your entire family to the exhibition Kids’ City and discover a sensory universe with houses upside down, giant chairs and a bicycle snake. Learn how good architecture can make life in the city healthier and more fun for everyone.

A city for kids is a city for everyone!

Fun City

How can we have even more fun together in the city? See some of the best examples on architecture made for play and togetherness. Use your own body when you climb a miniature version of KU.BE or turn the world upside down in a tilted house. You can also build the coolest city with your friends in Minecraft.

Small in a big city

The city can seem huge when you are small. See how Danish studio Cobe have designed a kindergarten in child-scale with 11 small houses that creates a small village within the city. And feel what scale really means when you play with micro and macro furniture.

Bicycle city

Copenhagen is the undisputed bicycle capitol og world! Everone ride bikes. Even 5-6year olds ride their bikes across the city. How cool is that?! We even have bridges specially designed for bikes. Crawl into a bicycle tube and see the bike bridges in the city.

Healthy city

In 2025 BørneRiget will be finished right besides Rigshospitalet. Made by Danish studio 3XN in collaboration with Arkitema, with the vision to make nothing less than the worlds best hospital for children and families. With room for play and room for turning difficult situations into positive and safe experiences.
