For more than a decade Danish Architecture has seen widespread international success. Danish architectural firms have received a great deal of attention beyond the boarders of Denmark with some of the newest, internationally renowned projects being the Google Headquarters in California and the new World Trade Center tower in New York by BIG based in Copenhagen.

Experiences from the Danish architecture industry are thus worthwhile to study and the Danish Consulate in Toronto is therefore inviting Canadian architects to take part in our Copenhagen ArchitecTOUR from September 14-19, 2015 exploring Danish sustainable architecture and growing cities.
