The Danish National Maritime Museum by BIG

The Danish National Maritime Museum by BIG | Meet Green & Cheers! | Scoop.it

The new Danish National Maritime Museum is located just north of Copenhagen and 10 km from the famous Louisiana Museum for Modern Art. The new 6,000 m² museum finds itself in a unique historical context adjacent to one of Denmark’s most important buildings, Kronborg Castle, a UNESCO World Heritage site – known from Shakespeare’s Hamlet. It is the last addition to Kulturhavn Kronborg, a joint effort involving the renovation of the Castle and two new buildings – offering a variety of culture experiences to residents and visitors to Helsingør.


Bjarke Ingels: “By wrapping the old dock with the museum program we simultaneously preserve the heritage structure while transforming it to a courtyard bringing daylight and air in to the heart of the submerged museum. Turning the dock inside out resolved a big dilemma: Out of respect for Hamlet’s Castle we needed to remain completely invisible and underground – but to be able to attract visitors we needed a strong public presence. Leaving the dock as an urban abyss provides the museum with an interior façade facing the void and at the same time offers the citizens of Helsingør a new public space sunken 8 m below the level of the sea.”

What happens on the rare occasion we find ourselves unprepared? We borrow. We hack an alternative solution. We do without. The threats of being unprepared are more social than mortal. Here are a few common places where we tend to unnecessarily err on the side of preparedness and some easy alternative solutions:

ISO 20121 International Sustainability Standard | Sunsail | Meet Green & Cheers! | Scoop.it

To achieve ISO 20121, Sunsail had to implement a management system to review all its activities and provide evidence of best practice embedded into its operation. Examples include the installation of inline bilge filters on all F40 yachts to ensure no oily bilge water is discharged into the sea; the provision of spill kits for clients and skippers to have close to hand when refuelling to ensure all spills are quickly dealt with; a no plastic bag policy on the boats; and supplies of phosphate free detergents and cleaners on board to minimise grey water pollution. Sunsail has to demonstrate continual improvement and works with its supply chain to achieve this.

Design your life to include more money, health and happiness with less stuff, space and energy. Ever since David Owen wrote the popular book The Green Metropolis and Ed Glaeser wrote The Triumph of the City , this has become the standard response. In fact it has been expanded and refined to suggest that the denser and higher the city, the greener it is.
