In May 2015 The Architecture Project hosted the exhibition CREATE WITH aarhUS in Hamburg, Germany. TRH The Danish Crown Prince Couple attended the official opening – along with The Danish Minister for Trade and Development Cooperation, Mr Mogens Jensen, and around 400 guests.
The exhibition shows Aarhus’ architecture and architects and – not least – the city’s holistic urban development, which is unique in an international context.
“I know that it might sound pompous, but it’s actually true: Many places and many developers can learn something from the way that we plan and develop in Aarhus,” says Carina Serritzlew, head of The Architecture Project.
“This is not least due to the fact that we approach urban planning in a holistic way: we consider people’s well-being, the environment, culture and so on, when we plan. Of course, we can also learn a lot from Germany, and this exhibition has been a great chance to learn from each other.”
The exhibition opened on May 19 at HafenCity University in Hamburg and was open and free to the public for four weeks. It was part of a larger promotion of Danish business interests in Germany, and has been shown in Bremen and Berlin in 2013 and 2014.
