Our interns walking in the footsteps of the grand masters of architecture. This spring our 14 interns packed their Dorte Mandrup totes and went on a journey through Europe to study their predecessors and hug some Tadao Ando concrete. Read more at the link in bio. Photo by @arielscholten

Last night Foreningen for @boghaandvaerk chose our book CONDITIONS as this year's Best Book Work in the Art & Non-Fiction category. Since we're more experienced in creating buildings than books, we're proud to be acknowledged among the true connoisseurs. CONDITIONS was created for our exhibition at the @labiennale in Venice in close collaboration with @urgent.agency and printed by @narayanapress If you're curious to see our giant, silver vacuum-packed publication, you can bike by @det_kongelige_bibliotek or buy your own copy at @arkitektens_butik

Read-nest: our one-size-fits-all asylum. Measuring barely 10 m2, Read-Nest is a structure designed to sit in the landscape like an architectural folly. The facades are clad with vertical oiled tuja lists and the interior is based on the idea that less is definitely more.

Very excited to be one of three studios competing for the master planning of @thelabreatarpits and museum in Los Angeles.There's a first time for everything - and we sure haven't designed for black holes full of history and mammoths before. Everything from tiny teeth to dire wolves have been pulled out of the black asphalt pools that formed 38,000 years ago and still function as an active research site.

The red tank filled with two million litres of water sits as the cherry on top of our 36 student housing units. Jægersborg Vandtårn has been providing Gentofte with water since the 50's - and after our transformation it's also been providing students with light living spaces.Photo by Jens Markus Lindhe

A small peek into our office and a huge thanks to the Nykredit Foundation. Being acknowledged often means more than one can imagine, and it makes you able to continue even when the ride gets bumpy. The Nykredit Foundation's Architecture prize is the biggest of its kind in Scandinavia. The prize is awarded every year to one or several architects who have – either personally or through their works – made an outstanding contribution to construction.Longer version with english subtitles here: https://vimeo.com/333939169 Video by @rinerodin og @strandbergpublishing for @nykredits_fond

A thatched triangle made by local reeds.The reeds used to create the thatched roof and facades of the Wadden Sea Centre were harvested just around the corner. Reeds absorb the salt in the sea air as they sit dried and tied in place, creating sharp angels and never cutting corners.Photo by: Matthew Johnson, @a449ltd

Ahoy! Look closely at the bricks at Bordings Independent School and you'll see that pirates passed by and tagged it. The bricks are reused from the old gatehouse and still carry names dating all the way back to the 1930s. Next to the bricks is a perforated corten steel screen that becomes beautifully patinated over time - just like the writings on the wall. Photos by Torben Eskerod #reducereuserecycle

Make architecture not war. Why build walls, when you can put up airy, moveable curtains of parachute cloth? The former Seaplane Hangar H53 was build in 1921 and originally used for constructing navy seaplanes - today it provides students from @kadkdk with workspaces. Photo by Jens Lindhe
