The 006 issue of MAP is a VENICE BIENNALE special.

In September 2011, selected teams won a competition hosted by the Danish Architecture Centre, to exhibit at the Danish Pavilion for the 13th Venice Biennale of Architecture. The theme and aim for the exhibit was to be the formalisation of months of research into the many challenges Greenland faces today and in the immediate future.


MAP aims to merge the fields of science and research on one hand, and architectural design on the other. It aims to exemplify this approach via it’s format. MAP presents itself as a folded A1, with only two pages. Research and data on one page, and architectural projects on the other.

Each issue deals with a single subject, sometimes abstract, sometimes concrete, which is placed under scrutiny through the collection of data and research from multiple perspectives. The architectural projects are a direct response to the research, sometimes pragmatic, sometimes critical or even ironic. No design is undertaken until the research phase is complete, which lasts about 3 months.

MAP aims to exercise architecture in the realm of speculation, through the boundaries and directions set by research and investigations, carried out into a series of fields and themes with direct spatial implications.  and investigations, carried out into a series of fields and themes with direct spatial implications.
