The new wing of the Natural History Museum in Copenhagen, designed by Kengo Kuma, Erik Møller Arkitekter, and JAJA architects is a a project about blending. The architects have taken a key aspect of humanity and its relationship with history- the encroachment of one on the other, followed eventually by vice versa, and tied it into the scheme.

The museum in the garden. The garden in the museum. Located in the Botanical Garden in the heart of Copenhagen, our proposal extends the beautiful spatial qualities of the garden across the site, connecting to the city and further into the museum – allowing movement that ties city, garden and museum into a unified whole. The intricate relation between garden and museum makes the New Natural History Museum a part of the experience of the garden and an integrated part of city.
