Aabenraa Psychiatric Hospital in exhibition on architecture that creates value

White’s model of Aabenraa Psychiatric Hospital is featured in the exhibition “Architecture and Design that adds value” which takes place in Copenhagen 14 March – 28 April 2017.


Aabenraa Psychiatric Hospital is a good example of the impact architecture can have on people and how we are affected both physically and mentally by our surroundings. Only two years after opening, evaluations show that the building has had a positive effect on patients; they feel more comfortable and act out less.

White’s design concept for Aabenraa Psychiatric Hospital was to create spatial sequences in the human scale to support patients’ treatment.

The exhibition is organised by the Danish Association of Architectural Firms and The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts Schools of Architecture, Design and Conservation.

Visit the exhibition at Industriens House, H. C. Andersens Boulevard 18, Copenhagen.
