Will it Sustain? - three international exhibitions on sustainability
Under the title WILL IT SUSTAIN? the Danish Architecture Centre is presenting three international exhibitions on the theme of the paradoxes of sustainability. The exhibitions, Behind the Green Door, The Banality of Good and Shifts can be seen in conjunction with a wide range of debates, lectures, film screenings, family activities and guided tours.
The two smaller exhibitions,The Banality of Good and Shifts, is closing on 25th of May. The main exhibition Behind the Green Door is on display until 9th of June.
Can a window be sustainable, too sustainable and completely unsustainable all at the same time? Is a solar power-operated lawn mower sustainable, when it is designed to trim the artificial and intensively irrigated golf courses in desert states? These are some of the questions and dilemmas you face when you visit the exhibition in the Danish Architecture Centre.

Lectures, debates, films and family activities on the subject of sustainability
WILL IT SUSTAIN? is more than just exhibitions. It is also a rich programme of debates, lectures, film screenings, guided tours and family activities, all of which will take place during the period of the exhibition.
The Danish Architecture Centre will also provide the setting for debates and lectures on the subjects of sustainability and lifestyle, food and sustainability and much more.
Exhibitions, which travelled around the world
The three exhibitions have all been presented on international platforms throughout the world.
