Andersen & Sigurdsson Architects will be part of the official Danish contribution to the 15th International Architecture Biennale in Venice, taking place from May 28th to November 27th 2016. The Danish part of the exhibition is curated by Boris Brorman Jensen og Kristoffer Lindhardt Weiss.

The Danish contribution to the Architecture Biennale in Venice, Italy in 2016 is a snapshot of a new humanism in Danish architecture. With a wunderkammer of architectural prototypes, the two curators behind the exhibition are seeking to highlight the humanistic focus of Danish architecture right now.

With the title Reporting from the Front, curator of the architecture exhibition, Alejandro Aravena, sets the stage for a biennale that explores the role of the architect in the struggle “to improve the quality of the built environment and consequently people’s quality of life.
