SMK Museum garden

The garden in front of The National Gallery of Denmark consists of an open landscape, which invites guests of the museum and passers-by to engage and enjoy a breathing space and cultural events in front of the museum. The garden is made of soft islands of grass and twisting pathways, and acts as a melting pot for arts and urban life: On the broad edge of the large pool, museum guests are invited to sit while discussing art experiences, kids are playing, and passers-by settle down with their coffees.

The museum garden received the City of Copenhagen’s Buildings Award 2015 for beautiful architecture that enhances the city experience for the citizens.
