Museum for Moderne Kunst
Museum for Moderne Kunst Review
Architect Søren Robert Lund was just 25 and still a student when he was awarded the commission for the Museum for Moderne Kunst, which is set against the flat coast southwest of Copenhagen. Arken, or "the ark," which opened in 1996, is a building with a ship's features; sail-like protrusions and narrow red corridors that evoke a submarine. The museum's massive sculpture room exhibits both modern Danish and international art. The hall is narrow in one end and wider in the other to provoke illusions of space and proximity, depending on where you stand. The café, which looks like a ship's bridge, offers nice views of Køge Bugt. S-trains C and E leave from all major Copenhagen train stations. From Copenhagen, you cross five zones. From there, take Bus 128, which lets you off in front of the museum.
