Greenland - head for the centre of the world

© BIG Bjarke Ingels Group

The Danish Architecture Centre's autumn exhibition,'Greenland - Head for the centre of the world', invites visitors on a sensuous and exciting journey to modern Greenland. The exhibition will provide a new and up-to-date view of Greenland with all the opportunities and challenges, which recent years have opened up for its people and society.

The exhibition will open the gates to modern Greenland for an encounter between visitors and some of the people, who make the decisions about the country's future development.

Employing a variety of specific examples, a number of Danish and Greenlandic architects will show how they work together to take on the various challenges and opportunities: for example, by creating a new combined super harbour and international airport; or by designing a town, which can accommodate people from all over the world, but without the people of Greenland losing their own identity.

The exhibition 'Greenland - Head for the centre of the world' is a re-curated version of the exhibition Possible Greenland, which was shown in 2012, as the official Danish contribution to the 13th International Architecture Biennale in Venice. Possible Greenland was also shown at Katuaq in Nuuk in February 2013.
