C.F. Møller shows new projects at the Biennale

20.5.2016 | When the world's largest architectural event, the Venice Biennale, opens in late May, C.F Møller will be presenting all of nine projects in the Danish and Nordic pavilion.

 

Every other year architecture enthusiasts flock to Italy to see and experience architects from all over the world presenting new, challenging and exciting approaches to modern architecture.

And if you happen to be in Venice when this year's architecture Biennale kicks off, there is an excellent opportunity to be inspired by C.F. Møller's architecture.

Five models on display
In the Danish pavilion five of C.F. Møller's projects are being displayed and here you can see models of the master plan for the future city-integrated campus at the Copenhagen Business School, the world's tallest building in wood for HSB in Stockholm, the unique and highly-praised Hospice Djursland, the residential tower building with a new social angle in Antwerp and the Mærsk Building, and future research frameworks such as an extension to the Panum Institute in Copenhagen.

"We are proud to be represented by so many projects in this year's Biennale, ,says Julian Weyer, partner at C.F. Møller, who will himself be in attendance at the opening of this year's events.

"It is a huge pat on the back recognising our approach and expertise in creating attractive and contemporary conditions for a wider audience", he explains.

Humanistic approach to architecture
Both the Danish pavilion, with the exhibition titled The Art of the Many, and the Nordic pavilion, with the title In Therapy, brings focus onto how architecture helps to define and support Nordic welfare through its humanism and its high social commitment.

"Danish architects contend to sustain themselves and their surroundings in efforts not only to solve but also to raise the level of the tasks", say Boris Brorman Jensen and Kristoffer Lindhardt Weiss, curators of the Danish pavilion at the Venice Biennale.

Therapeutic design
Alongside the Danish pavilion the Nordic pavilion exhibits projects carried out in Finland, Norway and Sweden between the years 2008-2016 The Nordic pavilion is curated by David Basulto, CEO and editor-in-chief of ArchDaily, which, with its more than 500 000 daily readers, is among the most widely-read architecture websites in the world.

Here are four of C.F. Møller's projects; three Norwegian and one Swedish, in the form of the multi award-winning Akershus University Hospital, the homeless shelters in the historical environment of Arveset Gård and the restoration of one of the University of Oslo's most important buildings in Domus Media as well as the characteristic Acute and Infection Clinic at Skåne's University Hospital, designed and equipped to protect against the outbreak of pandemics.

Art of Many and The Right to Space will be put on display after the Biennale in the Danish Architecture Centre. This year's architectural Biennale in Venice opens on the 28th May and runs to the 27th November.
