Waterfront Culture Center, Copenhagen

First Prize

Water – its different states, the reflections of light and shadows on its surface, and the humid atmosphere it creates – is the guiding thread of this proposal that doesn’t intend to create just one object, but an experience in the form of landscape, art, and architecture.

Brick references the context and highlights the quality and aesthetics of traditional Danish crafts. Its haptic texture and the warm natural hues of the masonry compose a tangible skin that defines the interior and the exterior of the building.
