Follow the Vandkunsten advent calendar
All of December you can follow the Vandkunsten advent calendar on Instagram. We have found a bunch of hand drawings from the archives to share - one a day.
The very first drawing is an all-time favorite – from the project ‘Utopia Harbor’ (Utopiens Havn)
Look carefully to find built-in comments towards architectural critics of the time.
As a critique of developments of Copenhagen Harbor building monuments and institutions of power, Utopiens Havn (1989) is a co-housing project and a combination of planned and more autonomous community-based urban growth is suggested – here houses and offices are given pride of place along the water front.
The drawing holds in it, on one side a critic on developments of monuments and institutions of power, houses and offices in the harbor area, and on the other side a comment on that time’s architectural critics.
While ‘ordinary’ people are flocking to the co-housing project, proposed as a combination of planned and more autonomous community based urban growth, the architecture critics get a hole in the fence to get a look!
