Workshop for Architecture

The purpose of Workshop for Architecture is to create a space that will contribute to the ongoing discussion of how a long-term perspective and an increased focus on existing building customs can lead to a more sustainable future.

The new workshop and exhibition space Værksted for Arkitektur by RØNNOW LETH & GORI is founded on a shared passion and knowledge of the historical buildings and cultural heritage that we are all surrounded by and inhabit every day. The purpose of the workshop and exhibition space is to have a space where knowledge can be transformed into a sustainable practice of building. Through experiments and research projects anchored in a strong professional curiosity, we aim to examine the heritage of our built environment across time and history.

Guests will be able to experience projects, events and special exhibitions in the Workshop throughout 2023. The program will be updated regularly and published on this website.

Værksted for Arkitektur is located in a former bakery in the Vesterbro neighbourhood of central Copenhagen. This also provides visitors with the chance to experience a typical Copenhagen housing block in one of the city’s historical neighborhoods. Inside the housing block, the backyard offers a chance to see one of Copenhagen's characteristic green common spaces, giving a sense of airness and privacy to this densely populated area.
