As some of you already know, the old Carlsberg brewery has gone through some changes these last years and there are still plenty to come.

Carlsberg has a special place in my Copenhagen heart. I grew up near the brewery and still remember the odd smell dominating Frederiksberg when Carlsberg was brewing. I’ve been distorted with Distortion at Carlsberg. I’ve trained at the parcour facilities at Carlsberg. Been at concerts, exhibitions, dance performances, playing with ropes etc.

This weekend Carlsberg invites us all to see what is next to come. Five architect studios are in the final round to realize their visions for the Carlsberg Brand Center. The picture shown here is the proposal done by “Effekt” which is exhibited along with the other four.

As an architect student and a local citizen I’m very exited to see what they’ve come up with. But. I’m not in any doubt that it will be equally as exciting for those where the name Carlsberg merely is a beer. The Carlsberg brewery is beautiful and if you haven’t had the pleasure of visiting, this would definitely be a recommendable time to do so.

Friday is the big vernissage 17:00 – 20:00. See the five big visions for the “Carlsberg brand center” – bar and dj.

Saturday the visions are presented by the architects. 11:00 – 16:00.

Sunday you can get guided tours and see the exhibition. 11:00 – 16:00.
