MIND YOUR BEHAVIOUR
HOW CAN ARCHITECTURAL SURROUNDINGS AFFECT YOUR BEHAVIOUR? Architecture can get people talking together. Architecture can calm children in the classroom. Architecture can make passive people more active. Architecture can shape corporate culture. Architecture can encourage people to find new paths, discover new aspects of their city – and of themselves. On 12 february (tomorrow) there is a grand opening of a solo exhibition of 3XN at the Danish Architecture Centre in Copenhagen. MIND YOUR BEHAVIOUR invites you into 3XNs universe and gives a glimpse into the thoughts, visions and processes forming the basis of 3XNs architecture focusing on behaviour. The exhibit challenges the concept of behaviour by providing a direct and physical meeting with 4 meter high abstract building sections as well as inviting the viewer to reflect on how architecture shapes our behaviour. The exhibit displays 28 projects from the last five years of 3XNs work.
3XNs Principal Kim Herforth Nielsen explains: ”Our objective is to give the audience a direct, sensual experience of how architecture affects the way we experience things and interact with each other. At the same time, MIND YOUR BEHAVIOUR initiates the public into the thoughts and processes that lie behind 3XNs architecture.”
MIND YOUR BEHAVIOUR will be on display at the Danish Architecture Centre until May 13. Afterward it will be on tour. The exhibit is followed by a book, which will be published March 4 in connection with an international summit on ‘Behaviour and the Built Environment’.
