Copenhagen Design Week 2011
For the second time, Copenhagen Design Week will welcome international architects, designers, heads of companies, researchers and students for six days of conferences, seminars, talks, exhibitions and events.
From Thursday, 1 September to Tuesday, 6 September, much of Copenhagen will be buzzing with design events and debates that will focus on Danish design and design solutions under the theme, “Think Human.”
Copenhagen Design Week will bring together activities from the world’s biggest design award, INDEX, to specialist arrangements from the Danish Design Centre (DDC), the Danish Design Association (DDA), the Danish Architecture Centre (DAC), the Danish Design Museum, Copenhagen Business School, and design and architecture schools.
At the heart of the week will be a special “Think Human” design zone on the pier on Ophelia Beach, next to the Royal Danish Playhouse. The zone will have exhibitions, a press centre, an information point and recreation areas. Attendees will be able to see exhibitions and architectural installations, get export advice from the Foreign Ministry’s local representatives, and hear international speakers talk on how the humanist way of thinking can make a difference.
