About the venue

Fæstningens Materialgård (the Fortifications Depot) is located in the historic center of Copenhagen. The complex, which has heritage status, encloses a small oasis with roses and magnolias and was home to the Ministry of Defense for more than 250 years up till 2007.

As a part of Bryghusområdet (the Brewery Site), the Fortifications Depot stands along Frederiksholms Kanal, with Christiansborg Palace, the King’s Brewery and the Royal Library as its nearest neighbors.

Furthermore, a new architectural site is being constructed. The new prestigious building is designed by Rem Koolhaas from OMA and aims to connect the city center to the Copenhagen harbor.

The Krak Fond – Institute for Urban Economic Research moved into the Fortifications Depot in October 2014 together with the Danish Architecture Centre, Copenhagen Solution Lab and IFHP (The International Federation for Housing and Planning), and more companies and organisations are to come.

The aim of this cluster is to create a national platform for the development and international exposure of Danish architecture, construction, urban development, design and urban research.
