The Department of Architecture and Aesthetics at the Aarhus School of Architecture was in 2004 invited to participate in a cooperation scheme for a new Danish project suggesting a Nordic centre to be built in Copenhagen for the promotion of understanding between European and Arab-Islamic cultures.
The project is inspired by an on-going, successful cultural collaboration called NOMAD ACADEMY between Denmark and Sharjah.
The initiators of the Arab Cultural Centre have pointed to a building site near Frederiksholms Kanal on the Copenhagen waterfront.
On show are 30 pilot projects including 2 large scale models, each of 12 m2. "Gardens" represent the work of more than 120 students from The Department of Architecture and Aesthetics at the Aarhus School of Architecture during 2004-05.
"Gardens" will be on show at Sharjah Art Museum during March 2006 at the exhibition NOMAD ACADEMY GOES PUBLIC and later at the Aarhus School of Architecture.
The exhibition URBAN LANDSCAPE presents student works from the departments of Anders Abraham, Nat Chard, Cort Ross Dinesen, Simon Ingvartsen, Claus Peder Pedersen (CArch) and Hans Feldthusen (AAArch) from November 12th – to December 11th.
