The BLOX project in Copenhagen

The building designed by OMA perched on the front of the port of Copenhagen is destined to become a new unmissable destination for architecture enthusiasts. This spring, after four years of construction, "BLOX" opens its doors to the public, becoming a hub for architecture and urban solutions.

The building includes the center of Danish architecture, the country’s meeting place for all fans of the sector, the heart of design and urban culture, and the BLOXHUB, an innovation center that brings together various companies, organizations and researchers.

The project, the first in Denmark for OMA, is described by the company as "a linear exhibition of the principles of Danish modernism: monumentality, simplicity and courtesy". Designed by OMA partner Ellen Van Loon, the complex includes new public spaces, a harbor promenade, bridges, a cafe/restaurant with canal terrace, a fitness center, apartments and a playground designed for visitors of all ages. The internal program is organized as a vertical sequence, contained in a series of rectangular volumes.

Built and financed by the Danish philanthropic association Realdania, the focal point of development is the Danish center of architecture (DAC). Occupying a central position in BLOX, the institution will offer exhibitions, guided tours, events, a design shop, a bar and conference and teaching facilities.
