BIG’s design sheds new light on Denmark’s war history, and it does so by balancing practical and playful forms. The bunker’s dark and austere energy is balanced by the museum’s light, airy and modern features. The resulting landscape features a mix of old and new forms, as natural and unnatural features dot the surrounding landscape of the museum. Heavy concrete and metal is set next to light-toned steel and glass, creating a provocative sensory experience.
