From the middle of September through to early January the Danish Architecture Centre will have a series of individual exhibitions in the first-floor gallery space that will look at the work of three newly-established architectural firms in Denmark. Sted is the first of the three and their exhibition opened on the 16th September.
Sted translates into English as place or location and the team - a group of young architects and landscape architects - have a strong interest in the established character of a location. In projects, they focus on the texture of existing hard landscape; colours and texture of existing buildings and the plants that may have become established naturally as a site or buildings have declined or are abandoned. It is the existing character of a specific place or neighbourhood rather than simply the potential of a cleared site that they take as their starting point.
