Balancing Domes

Workshop for Munkeruphus with 4th grade primary students from Gilbjergskolen, Gilleje.

48 students made 45 architectural models. Here are 10 of the models.

We worked with the constructional strength of the curve, the use of gravity to balancing weight and we talked about housing/habitation with inspiration from the trees. Each student made a “Balancing Dome” and we also experienced how to create individual variety and identity within a concept.

Flashback to the project “Biotope”. The Biotope is featured in the latest issue of Concept, an architectural magazine from South Korea. Issue #251 p. 6-17

Meet at the Observatory during the Corona virus!

The Observatory has shown to be a great place to meet during the Corona crisis. It is a well ventilated space and six people can sit on the bench while keeping the social distance on 2 meter between them. And because of the great acoustic it is still very easy to hear each other. Light a bonfire and keep it warm and cosy.
The Observatory is free of charge and open 24-7. Remember to bring your own fire wood.
The photo with Rhoda and Mikkel from Studio ThinkingHand is taken by curator Line Kjær form Munkeruphus during a meeting for the upcoming exhibition with Studio ThinkingHand. Due to the Corona crisis you will be able to book your own time in the exhibition. For more info please look at

The show is on until the 20th of November. Please visit and find address and opening hours here. Photo by Artland.

Darkening in the Observatory

Come to Munkeruphus’s season finale on Sunday the 3rd of Nov. at 16.
Munkeruphus ends the season and a fantastic year with an old Nordic ritual, darkening, where we gather in the Observatory in the park, to follow the transition from day to evening. The museum offers a glass by the fire and while darkness falls, I will tell you about the observatory’s creation. Put on warm clothes and help put the year at Munkeruphu to sleep.
