The Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek
The project included the development of a digital model as a basis for accurate and rational design.

Gods and Heroes in Divine Surroundings
The brewer Carl Jacobsen (1842-1914) founded Glyptoteket in 1882 close to his home on Valby Hill, and in 1897 the rapidly growing collections of antique objects moved into the current museum building at Dantes Plads in central Copenhagen. The basic idea of Glyptoteket was that the museum was established as a gift to the Danish people and a place of artistic enrichment, and that the collection’s modern French art should provide artists of the time with new and much needed inspiration.

Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek
Glyptoteket has over 10,000 objects with an emphasis on ancient cultures around the Mediterranean Sea as well as Danish and French art from the 19th and 20th centuries.
