DAC: Welcome Home and Olafur Eliasson

Architects design houses. People create homes. More than anywhere else, architecture is ever-present and essential in the buildings that provide the framework for our daily lives. For this very reason, the home serves as the focal point of the first exhibition at Danish Architecture Center.

Welcome Home explores the homes of Danes through history, and the major waves – such as industrialization and globalization – that have shaped the way we live; it also examines how current challenges, such as demographics and evolving family structures, are inspiring more flexible homes, and presents an array of artistic and technological proposals for reprogramming and transforming homes of today into attractive homes of the future.

The first element meeting exhibition visitors is an interactive installation by world-renowned Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson. The installation, Multiple shadow house, is the size of a house and fills the Golden Gallery in DAC. Guests create the work of art themselves through a sensory experience of how the physical environment is impacted by behavior, movements and interaction – just as a house becomes a home when it is filled with life.

“We invited Olafur Eliasson to create this work here because it provides a direct experience of what happens when we enter a space and meet each other. We think that it will be a very good way for our guests to tune into the exhibition and engage with the debate and discussion about what a home is and can be,” says Kent Martinussen, CEO of Danish Architecture Center.
