Exhibition ”Architecture With People” is open from 19 September to 9 November 2015 in Butterfly Lounge (Vana-Viru 13, Tallinn). The exhibition is part of satellite programme of Tallinn Architecture Biennale (TAB).

Architecture is for people. It sets the framework for our lives and meets some of our most basic needs. In order to create architecture for people it has to be created with people. That means making design a democratic process in which architects engage in a dialogue with citizens, professionals and institutions. This allows architecture to meet the needs of the users and also take into account possible needs of the future, thereby promoting a high degree of sustainability.
Danish architecture is all about creating settings that make people feel safe, generate new opportunities and encourage diversity. It is about focusing strongly on environmental and social sustainability and most importantly, it is about putting people first.

Danish Architecture Centre has developed the exhibition at the request of the Danish Ministry of Culture and in dialogue with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark and the Danish Architects’ Association. It is rooted in the Danish architectural policy Putting people first, which was published in February 2014.
