Danish Architecture Center

Welcome Home

 

Exhibition period

7. May - 23. September 2018

Architects design houses. People create homes. With Welcome Home, Danish Architecture Center puts the future of Danish housing on the agenda. DAC raises the question of why we live as we do and invites you to explore and participate in the discussion on how we will live in the future. What are our dreams? How will the reality be like? And what are good homes, good neighborhoods and good cities?

(in Danish)

’Welcome Home’ is a journey through Danish homes. The exhibition shows the major historical events that have shaped the way we live – from industrialization and world wars to megacities and threatening climate crises. It examines how current challenges, such as changing demographics and evolving family ties, affect our homes today. Finally, a range of artistic and technological proposals invites you to discover how we will all live and build in the future.

“The home of the future has already been built. In 30 years, most Danes will live in houses that already exist. The question therefore becomes: How can we upgrade our current homes to meet our future expectations of sustainability, evolving family ties and changing dreams? That and much more, we would like to explore with our Danish and international visitors.”

Olafur Eliasson: Multiple shadow house

Installation

May 7 – October 10, 2018
A part of the exhibition Welcome Home.

Multiple shadow house is a light installation by the Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson.

The interactive installation is the size of a house. But as part of the Welcome Home exhibition, the art work shows how a house and a home is not the same. The home is something else and more than the physical architecture – most importantly, it includes people. Olafur Eliasson’s art work touches the senses and creates a bodily experience of how people in motion create relations in space.
