Copenhagen World
Capital of Archtuecture

In 2023, Copenhagen has been designated the World Capital of Architecture, and at Danish Architecture Center, we are already counting the days.

As the primary partner for the World Capital of Architecture program, DAC will be the epicenter for a wide range of activities and exhibitions that you won’t want to miss.

Made in Denmark

In March 2023, the Danish Architecture Center’s first permanent exhibition on Danish architecture will open. The exhibition unfolds the history of Danish architecture from the Viking Age to present day and gives you the opportunity to travel into the architecture and understand how absolutely vital it is to our democratic society.

Open House Copenhagen

In March 2023, we’re giving Copenhageners a wonderful gift, for free, as we unlock buildings in the city typically closed to the public. It all happens when DAC brings the international concept, Open House, to Copenhagen.

Exhibition: Copenhagen in Common

DAC’s big summer exhibition is about what we have in common – namely architecture.In the exhibition What We Have in Common, we present a wide range of Danish architects who are designing Denmark now and in the future.

Bringing the Global Goals to Schools

We don’t want schoolchildren to miss out on Copenhagen as the World Capital of Architecture! In 2023, DAC will therefore be offering new outreach programs that tap into the city’s World Capital of Architecture themes and the UN Sustainable Development Goals, which will also be in focus at the UIA World Congress of Architects.

UIA2023 World Congress

On July 2–6, architects from around the world will be visiting Copenhagen to attend the UIA World Congress of Architects. At the same time, DAC will be hosting a wide range of events focusing on the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the theme of the congress, “Leave No One Behind”.

The festival program is brimming with exhibitions, events, debates and tours spotlighting architecture and all the things we have in common. You can delve into Copenhagen’s architectural heritage or debate the city’s future urban development.
