This is well worth a trip north from Copenhagen. We visited on a sunny Summer’s day and the setting is superb, art set in beautiful buildings in lovely grounds with a gorgeous view of the sea. Many of the buildings are dug into the ground and all are modern except the old villa from 1856, around which the complex has respectfully grown.

The architecture should, I suggest, be studied by all architect students at University as the building is wonderfully contextual without being weak, contemporary and strong without overpowering the art, and simply sophisticated in its arrangement and articulation. If only some current architects obsessed with creating ‘instant icons’ could learn from this quiet way of forming space and form!

Louisiana has expanded consistently over the decades, with a Concert Hall in 1976 being a key addition. There is a permanent collection, exhibitions, shop and restaurant – with a connection down to the sea.
