DAC - Dansk Arkitektur Center

Danish Architecture Center (DAC) is an international cultural attraction passionate about engaging more people in the world og architecture. It explores architecture, urban development and design from its base at BLOX on Copenhagen harbourside. You can visit engaging exhibitions or join city walks and events – also for families.

The regularly-updated exhibitions at DAC showcase the latest trends in architecture along with insights from leading Danish architects. It's a place to discover masters of architecture like Jan Gehl and Arne Jacobsen, along with the most interesting Danish studios right now, for example BIG and 3XN, who have produced innovative architecture such as the VM Houses in Ørestad and the UN city at Copenhagen harbor.

DAC also hosts permanent exhibitions about Danish architecture and design history – also experience the DAC Slide – the wildest art installation in Copenhagen that challenge your senses on a unique 40-meter, 4-story spiral slide

Environmental efforts

Sustainability at DAC is about environmental, social and economic sustainability, which is incorporated into the overall company. DAC works with four general categories within sustainability.

1. Circularity
DAC wants to promote circular thinking and generate as little waste as possible.

2. Climate footprint
DAC wants to limit its climate footprint by being aware of their resource consumption, for example energy, water and electricity. The same applies in relation to transport and travel. DAC Café focuses on ecology and local produce in season.

3. Dissemination
DAC's main purpose is to mediate and facilitate dialogue about architecture and the built environment. An extremely important part of this is about highlighting sustainability and future solutions to both professionals and the general public. This is done both via exhibitions, activities and on digital platforms.

4. Social sustainability
DAC is an inclusive attraction where everyone should feel welcome regardless of background and experience gaining access to an understanding of sustainable development in architecture.



Copenhagen, Denmark's capital has been selected as the world's best city to visit, and the city's ambitious green profile has a clear goal: The City of Copenhagen is aiming to become the world's first CO2-neutral capital in 2025.

In Copenhagen there is a short road to both water and green areas. It is a green and bicycle friendly city that can be explored on the many new electric city bikes. You can stay in an eco-certified hotel, where as many as 75% of the city's hotel rooms are ecolabelled with either the Swan or Green Key, you can swim in the clean water in the city's water baths or consume organic food from Michelin restaurants to street food markets.

Wonderful Copenhagen has a sustainability strategy for tourism and is the first in the world to be labeled with the eco-label Green Tourism Organization.
