The Danish Architecture Centre is delighted to host the conference “Dedicated to Architecture – institutions as drivers of change”.  Leaders of international architecture institutions, curators and professionals are invited to join the exploration of future visions for the architecture institution.

The Danish Architecture Centre is preparing the emergence of a new architecture institution in Denmark. The institution is scheduled to open in 2016 in a building designed by OMA, situated in the heart of Copenhagen.

In collaboration with a number of Danish and international players we have initiated a conference looking into the role the architecture institution can and should play in the 21st century. We hope you will share the information with your readers and members.
