Title: “Possible Spaces”
Commissioner: Kent Martinussen, CEO of the Danish Architecture Centre. Curator: Natalie Mossin
Exhibitors: PRAKSIS Arkitekter, Vandkunsten Architects, BIG – Bjarke Ingels Group, CITA – Centre for Information Technology and Architecture

The Danish submission to the 16th International Architecture Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia presents a Danish approach to innovation through four projects selected by curator Natalie Mossin. The four Danish projects showcase some of the specific strengths of the Danish architectural tradition; of interdisciplinary collaboration, and a very keen focus on sustainability. Natalie Mossin has chosen to tell a Danish story of pursuing a joint approach to holistic sustainable development through interdisciplinary alliances and across sectors and communities. This theme is particularly topical in Denmark this year where the non-profit Realdania society is generously handing over the keys to BLOX – a newbuild designed by OMA to house the new Danish Architecture Center, BLOXHUB and a wide variety of other creative entities.
