The Embassy of Switzerland in Copenhagen was the first embassy to participate in 3daysofdesign, and the Swiss event has become an absolute must-see. This year you can experience a curated design exhibition, an exciting talk program and a multi-functional social installation by architects Bjarke Ingels (BIG) and Simon Frommenwiler (HHF).
Swiss Ambassador Benedikt Wechsler says: – Switzerland and Denmark both have proud design traditions, and both countries really value innovation, research, education and the creative industries. As an ambassador, I have worked on bringing Switzerland and Denmark closer together with design and architecture as focus areas. We have worked with the format Architecture in Residence and we have made annual presentations during 3daysofdesign. This is my last year as ambassador in Denmark, and I look forward to presenting our great design and architecture program during 3daysofdesign. The Embassy of Switzerland won a Danish Design Award in 2017 in the category “Game Changer” for the design concept Open Embassy.
Architecture in Residence: The renowned architects Bjarke Ingels (BIG) and Simon Frommenwiler (HHF) have joined forces to create a multi-functional social installation called ‘Puzzle House’ for the embassy’s unique garden at the waterfront, just north of Copenhagen. The project is part of the embassy’s Architecture in Residence (AiR) program, which, through changing projects since 2017, has helped strengthen the relations between Danish and Swiss architects, architecture schools and manufacturers from the building industry.
