Domicile for the Muscular Dystrophy Foundation (Muskelsvindfonden).

The law of gravity seems to have been repealed at the new domicile for the Danish Muscular Dystrophy Foundation (Muskelsvindfonden), where slender, V-shaped concrete legs bear the building's three brick storeys. This structure is an important part of the architectural expression, but is at the same time a practical solution which provides maximum accessibility for wheelchair users. Other examples of disabled-friendly design include voice-controlled lifts and easy access for wheelchairs to all rooms.
