April News From Denmark



April News From Denmark
Eye on Architecture
In Denmark, we always have our eye on architecture. The creation and construction of stunning spaces - public and private - is a hallmark of Danish style. The April issue of Condè Nast Traveler had its eye on architecture too, naming the incredible Cumulus Building, designed by Jurgen Mayer for the Danfoss Universe science and technology museum in Nordborg, South Jutland, as one of its "New Seven Wonders of the Architectural World." Among Denmark's other outstanding museum designs: Zaha Hadid's recent extension to the Ordrupgaard Collection; Daniel Libeskind's Jewish Museum in Copenhagen; and the ultra-modern AroS museum of modern art in Århus, designed by Danish firm Schmidt, Hammer & Lassen. For more focus on museum architecture in Denmark and around the world, visit the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Humlebæk, celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, for the upcoming exhibition: "Museum Architecture of the 21st Century" (June 18-September 14).

The zoo's elephants "migrated" from the old facility to the new one in March. After allowing them a few months to acclimate to their new surroundings, the beautiful, new Elephant House will open to the public June 10.
