Welcome to BLOX!
Architecture, design and new ideas
Located on the Copenhagen Harbour front, BLOX is part of the city’s cultural circuit of venues that have a role to play in a new urban economy. BLOX promotes sustainable urban development in a broad sense and thus forms the setting for activities aimed at the general public as well as more narrowly defined professional networks.
Exhibitions, guided tours, events and cafes
BLOX presents a broad selection of activities all year round. We invite you to experience Nordic design and architecture - and with world-class exhibitions, talks, summer schools and activities for citizens, BLOX is your destination for sustainable urban development, architecture, design and new ideas.
BLOX is home of DAC - Danish Architecture Center - that brings people closer to architecture. From cities, sidewalks and harbor baths to tiny forest cabins, tall skyscrapers and comfortable modernist chairs. DAC invites everyone to explore the physical surroundings through thought-provoking exhibitions, guided tours and events.
Co-creating our urban future
BLOXHUB is Denmark’s new base for future urban solutions, with a co-working space in the heart of Copenhagen and an international network of businesses, organisations and researchers within urbanisation. The community develops international solutions with a Nordic approach to create towns and cities with focus on the people who live there.

The BLOX building is itself an architectural landmark and an inspiring example of sustainable urban development. The building is designed by the internationally acclaimed architectural firm, OMA, as a city within the city, where people of all ages can meet, discuss, eat, play, exercise, work and live. At the same time, BLOX connects historic and contemporary parts of Copenhagen’s harbor front area that were previously divided.
