This massive, beautifully rendered monograph on the Danish practice 3XN, known for creating architecture in the nexus between science and art, between iconic design and context, is packed with information covering more than 25 works and projects, critical essays, case studies and interviews.

From high-profile buildings like the Danish Embassy in Berlin, Ørestad College and the Museum of Liverpool to smaller projects like the Louisiana Pavillion and NOMA Lab, the entire spectrum of the office’s accomplishments to date is presented.


3XN was founded as Nielsen, Nielsen and Nielsen in Aarhus in 1986 by the architects Kim Herforth Nielsen, Lars Frank Nielsen (partner until 2002) and Hans Peter Svendler Nielsen (partner until 1992). The studio quickly became known for two things: their preference for social and humane architecture, and projects demanding a high level of detail and employing workmanship of the highest quality.

Includes texts by Bo Boje Larsen and Kasper Guldager Jørgensen, while Jan Ammundsen, Kim Herforth Nielsen and Allan Kjær Andersen are interviewed.

3XN was founded as Nielsen, Nielsen and Nielsen in Aarhus in 1986 by the architects Kim Herforth Nielsen, Lars Frank Nielsen (partner until 2002) and Hans Peter Svendler Nielsen (partner until 1992). The studio quickly became known for two things: their preference for social and humane architecture, and projects demanding a high level of detail and employing workmanship of the highest quality.


A first breakthrough came with the court house in Holstebro (1992), which was followed by a number of first prizes in architectural competitions, such as the Danish Embassy in Berlin (1998) and the concert hall Muziekgebouw in Amsterdam (1997). The two latter structures made a name on the international architectural scene for the artistically ambitious Danish architects with their social approach and carefully planned spatial formations. The Muziekgebouw (2005) the Museum of Liverpool (2011) and The Blue Planet Aquarium shows the expertise on culture buildings and prestigious international proyects, with emphasis on original solutions in plans, facades and organisation of the interiors.


In 2007 3XN established GXN; a Research & Development department working with digital tools, new materials and green technologies in order to ensure the studio’s leading position within building sector innovation.


The partnership today consists of Founder Kim Herforth Nielsen; CEO Bo Boje Larsen who became Partner in 2003; Head of Competition Jan Ammundsen who became Partner in 2007 and Head of GXN, Kasper Guladger Jørgensen, who became partner in 2012.
