If natural history and living plants are part of one larger concept, then the new Natural History Museum planned for Copenhagen will prove to be a delight for visitors of all ages.
The concept of a museum in a garden or a garden in a museum is the work of Kengo Kuma & Associates, Erik Møller Arkitekter,Thing & Wainø Landskabsarkitekter, Buro Happold, 2+1 idébureau and jaja architects.
One of the interesting features of this design is the walkable green roof for visitors to explore. The museum building will be partially sunk into the ground, and visitors will be able to view some of its collection from outside the building, which fits in with the integrated theme of the design.
The idea is to encourage people passing by to be curious enough about the Museum’d exhibits to come in for a visit.
The Natural History Museum of Denmark is home to one of the largest collections of items which document the history of the planet, which means there are plenty of things to fascinate and stimulate discussions among visitors of all ages.
The overall effect the architects were trying to achieve was to make a visit to the Museum like a walk in the park for visitors. Spending time in the space is meant to be peaceful and enjoyable. Making the location one where people will want to gather is a great way to make it a destination which visitors will want to return to time and again.
