Love the artwork on the best ice cream shop in Islands Brygge, maybe in the whole of Copenhagen.

In an attempt to find original drawings of my newly acquired apartment, I found myself digging through the city’s archives. Presented with original ink drawings and ancient parchments, I marvelled at the evolution of hand writing and typography throughout the ages and at the care that went into preserving these since the early 19th century.






Are commissioned street artists sell-outs?

December 6, 2010

Fresh home from another DAC (Danish Architecture Centre) curated event coupling one of BIG’s architect Jacob Lange and street artist Victor Nash – the latter working large scale murals for over 2 decades around Europe – and their fruitful collaboration in the VM Bjerget housing complex in Ørestad’s new urban area. Exciting point of views from both the speakers and the audience raised numerous questions about the status of commissioned street art. Must it be illegal? Are street artists selling out? Recently adorned by the general public as a genuine – if not mainstream – art form, street art is still asked to redefine its borders and future.

Danish architecture bureau BIG‘s brand new housing complex. A new take on suburban life, the whole building aims to live and breathe as one community. As usual, BIG delivers a stunning piece of architecture – exploiting the firm’s talent for branding and for creating exciting visual experiences.

Hard to get a good picture of this Aarhus architecture firm’s retrospective, as its interest lies in the angular, composed space you experience by walking through.
