Architectural policy

The Danish Ministry of Culture launched the new architecture policy ""Putting People First" in February 2014. The new policy will replace the old architecture policy "Architecture Nation" from 2007.

The Danish Architectural Policy was launched by the Minister of Culture Marianne Jelved in February 2014.

The architectural policy has been developed in close cooperation between a number of ministries and stakeholders, including The Danish Architecture Centre.

The policy launches 64 specific initiatives in different ministerial fields of responsibility. The policy was presented at an event in February 2014.

Some of the initiatives in "Putting People First" focus on strengthening citizens' experience of architecture and their participation in democratic processes. Other initiatives focus on how architecture can promote sustainability and quality of life - environmentally, socially, and culturally.Other initiatives are focused on education and innovation, on architecture as a growth industry and on Danish architecture's international potential.
