CHART 2019 - CHART Architecture

This evening CHART - the big annual art fair in the city - opened at Kunsthal Charlottenborg - the main venue for the fair in the centre of Copenhagen.

This was an opportunity to see CHART Architecture - five pavilions in the courtyards of the 17th-century palace that were designed by emerging architects from the Nordic region - the finalists selected by an international jury in an open competition earlier in the year. The winner will be announced on Saturday.

The theme set for the competition was materiality - to see how new materials or reused materials could inspire the designs - and the winning entries have been constructed with the designers working with the engineering consultants ARUP.

Through the weekend of the fair - on Friday 30 and Saturday 31 of August and on Sunday 1 September - the pavilions will be the food stalls and bars for the event.

CHART 2019

 

Walking through the courtyards of Charlottenborg at the end of the week, there was intense activity with work moving forward fast on the construction of the temporary pavilions that are now a main and very popular feature of CHART ART FAIR - the annual commercial art fair in Copenhagen - that will open at Kunsthal Charlottenborg on Friday 30 August and continue through to Sunday 1 September.

The five pavilions are winning designs from a completion at the beginning of the year that was open to postgraduate students or newly graduated architects, designers and artists working in the Nordic region.

As in 2019, commercial galleries for furniture and design and designers and design studios will show separately in CHART DESIGN FAIR at Den Frie - the gallery space close to the railway station at Østerport.
