International ideas competition for a new Hans Christian Andersen House of Fairytales

House-of-Fairytales-1Odense City Museums and the City of Odense have launched a large-scale international ideas competition for innovative ideas for an overall concept that can combine the current facilities of the place in a single distinctive attraction. The little yellow corner house known as the birthplace of Hans Christian Andersen is one of the main attractions in the Danish city of Odense. The main focus of the presentations is currently on the life and character of the writer, but the museum does not fully respond to the great interest in the fairytales shared by the people who come from all over the world to see it.

Competition entries should take the vision for a Hans Christian Andersen House of Fairytales and a fairytale garden set out in the competition brief into account and should describe the museum presentation and communication aspects and the spatial and architectural framework of the House of Fairytales and the garden in a single concept.

The international ideas competition is open to everyone throughout the world and is particularly aimed at architects, museum professionals, communicators, designers, landscape architects, urban planners, theatre professionals and others with good ideas. The Danish Architects’ Association will act as competition adviser throughout the competition period.

The deadline for registration is 12 November, but the competition organizer would appreciate early registration in order to be able to plan the assessment process on the basis of the anticipated number of entries in the competition.

Entry Deadline
Entries must be submitted no later than 29 November 2013, and the competition result is scheduled for announcement in late March 2014.
