Soil lab: A collaboration with the Danish arts foundation

When America's largest architecture and design event Chicago Architecture Biennial 2021 opens in September, the new SoilLab will represent Denmark with a project that puts communities first.

- We are delighted to have been chosen to represent Denmark at the 2021 Chicago Architecture Biennial and are grateful to the jury for believing in our proposal, says the Soil Lab team.

According to the Danish team, the core of the winning project is to work with the residents of the hard-hit district in Chicago in transforming one of the district's countless built spaces into a new, common urban space that can bring positive change to the community.

The 2021 commission is the second time the Statens Kunstfond has invited Danish creatives to propose a site-specific project for Chicago.

The Soil Lab team consist of Eibhlín Ní Chathasaigh, James Martin, Maria Bruun, and Anne Dorthe Vester.
