The Danish Architecture Centre
The Danish Architecture Center (DAC) shows exhibitions focusing on city development and architectural wonders and hosts lectures, talks, city walks etc. DAC lives at BLOX on Copenhagen’s waterfront.
Architecture exhibitions with the leading Danish and international profiles
The exhibitions at DAC both showcase the latest international trends in architecture with exhibitions about masters of architecture like Frank Gehry and SANAA – and the most interesting Danish studios right now like BIG and 3XN, who have produced innovative architecture such as the VM Houses in Ørestad and the UN city at Copenhagen harbor. In addition, DAC hosts permanent exhibitions about Danish architecture and design history. DAC also arrange debates and events that focus on cities and urban development and how we design and develop future cities.
