People’s Palace at Oslo Architecture Triennale

“People’s Palace is an architectural statement confronting contemporary urban developments to instead paying tribute to the city's complexity and openness. In this visionary project, the Palads theatre in central Copenhagen, Denmark, currently a cinema, is transformed into a non-commercial, covered urban space, extending the outdoor season. The large inner space takes shape as an open, urban marketplace – but indoors – and not fully programmed.

Based on the artist Poul Gernes’ striking colour palette, the project gives hope to a more open, imaginative, and experimental urban development. ThePeople's Palace is the result of an ideas competition organised by the Gernes Foundation and Copenhagen Contemporary in 2021 about the transformation of the cinema Palads Teatret (The Palace Theatre). The competition was won by a team consisting of Lauge Floris, Knud Aarup Kappel, the artist collective AVPD, DSA ARK STUDIO and Olivia Toftum.”
