Playing - Architecting Happiness

Dato 14.09.20 |
Sacha Mortensen

Good architecture encourages playing. “Play is the only way the highest intelligence of humankind can unfold."

Sustainable architecture is built for people. Danish architects have succeeded in… Strengthening an area’s identity by making a new Wadden Sea Centre an instant regional landmark. Increasing sevenfold the number of visitors to a museum of prehistory by designing a new main building that integrates culture, nature and architecture. Encouraging playing and physical exercise by integrating a playground with the roof of a parking garage. Creating new life on the waterfront by designing a concert hall whose open design attracts visitors. Encouraging physical exercise by integrating skiing on top of a student housing… and a power plant.

Danish architecture encourages playing globally.
