In order to offer all the details about this exhibition and to present it to the media, this Wednesday, July 11, the councilman of the Culture Department of the city of Cartagena, David Martínez, and the deputy director of the School of Architecture and Building of the Polytechnic University of Cartagena (UPCT), Manuel Rodenas.

'Architecture for people' is an exhibition on Danish contemporary collective architecture that was inaugurated this Wednesday, July 11, within the programming of La Mar de Músicas, and which can be visited until July 28, in the Nave de Música Motors of the Superior Technical School of Architecture and Building of the Polytechnic University of Cartagena.

The exhibition shows how the architecture of the country invited to this edition of La Mar de Músicas has people as the origin and center of the projects.

The mayor of Culture, has reported that the section 'The Sea of ​​Architecture' is a new section of Cartagena festival, and that in this edition will lay the foundations for future editions.

He has also highlighted the importance of Danish architecture, which makes it be imitated in other countries, such as Spain.

In a welfare state as developed as Danish, public architecture and urban planning play a crucial role as they create the ideal framework for sustainable social development.

In the exhibition, which can be seen this summer at the School of Architecture and Building, on the Paseo Alfonso XIII, it will show how the physical environment also reflects the features of a society and, at the same time, influences their social behavior .

Danish architecture has been well known for decades for its commitment to sustainability, energy saving and urban planning, as well as for applying design processes that center on people who will enjoy urban spaces.

In fact at the beginning of the 20th century, the Danish subsidized housing promotions established a new standard that was a model for other similar initiatives at an international level.

Already in the fifties, Danish design brought architectural quality to the popular classes and, today, a multitude of Danish architects are creating attractive and economically accessible buildings that are inspiration for architects from all over the world.

In Spain there are many architects who have looked towards Denmark for more than seventy years to carry out their projects.

Without going any further, in Guadalajara (Castilla-La Mancha) there is a good example: the group of houses in the Central de Zorita.

A project with an important influence of the Danish architect Jörn Utzon, both in relation to how single-family homes are grouped, through organic configurations, integrated into non-urban landscape environments, in their novel way of working with brick, wood, glass or roof tile.

Also for the configuration of those homes around interior patios.

In addition, there are many school buildings in Spain based on the plans and photographs of the famous Munkegards Elementary School (1952), designed by Arne Jacobsen.

There are also numerous hotels conceived with the modern elegance of the Royal SAS Hotel in Copenhagen in mind, and countless homes furnished with Danish-inspired designs.

"Architecture for people" will imply that, in order to create architecture on a human scale, it must agree with the population, make design a participatory process in which architects engage with citizens in a dialogue with professionals and with public institutions.

Danish collective architecture focuses on creating spaces that generate new opportunities and promote diversity, focusing on environmental and social sustainability and, even more important, giving priority to people.

The exhibition is part of the parallel activities of La Mar de Músicas 2018 and can be seen from July 11 to 28 in the exhibition space of the Engine Building of the Polytechnic University of Cartagena.

Visiting hours from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and from 5:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
