The Danish Architecture Center (DAC) opens a new facility inside BLOX – the iconic multifunctional building at the port of Copenhagen designed by Ellen Van Loon of the studio OMA – and hosts an exhibition of work by Olafur Eliasson

Blox, the iconic new multifunctional building at the port of Copenhagen designed by the architect Ellen Van Loon of the studio OMA, has been created to house the Danish Architecture Center – DAC in the central part of the structure, with large spaces for exhibitions, an auditorium, conferences and training programs.

 

Blox has been designed like a city in the city, a living, active part of the heart of Copenhagen. It connects the city to the port creating new paths and bringing life to a previously abandoned zone.

 

In the context of the opening exhibition Welcome Home (7 May – 23 September), a voyage of discovery in Danish homes over time, the Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson interprets the essence of the home with the interactive installation Multiple Shadow House, as large as a real house, occupying an entire gallery.

The visitors activate the artwork through a sensorial experience, where physical spaces are influenced by behavior, movement and interaction.
