London, UK (PRWEB) July 5, 2008 — Leicester based design agency Wildcard Creative have taken over the underground car-park of the Arne Jacobsen designed Danish Embassy in London for sust-DANE-able, an exhibition of sustainable Danish Architecture.

The entire installation uses recycled materials and will eventually be recycled at the end of its life.
