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.
