The Children’s Culture House is an innovative project by architect Dorte Mandrup Arkitekter. It's developed with the imaginative and fun input of children. The whole process included both children (from the ages 8–14) and adults from different kind of professions; the staff of the cultural center, librarians, teachers, musicians, visual artists and actors. Adults who understand and the world of children and could interpret their activities. A series of workshops was held - both with children and adults. A few of the themes highlighted was “experiences and adventures with space”, “the ideal place to play”, “dream house”, etc. What a great way to start a project!
