Our exhibitions

With a focus on the present and the future, our exhibition program aims to make knowledge available and inspiring, but also to provoke conversations about current issues within our subject areas - not least in connection with the designed living environment. In recent years, we have highlighted everything from new innovative materials for infills and spaces for play in the city. The focus is often on processes and sustainability rather than finished results.
