Visionen - Parkmuseerne

Da der er grøde i den Københavnske museumsverden i form af et større tværfagligt samarbejde museerne imellem, og der venter nogle vældigt spændende byggeprojekter og renoveringer vil det være på sin plads at indlemme dette for at give et bredere indsigt i disse emner.
Museerne er geografisk forbundet i det gamle voldanlæg der nu tæller Kongens Have, Østre Anlæg og Botanisk Have.

Jeg har tænkt mig at omformulere denne tråd til at omfatte Statens Museum for Kunst, Davids Samling, Rosenborg, Hirschsprungs Samling og Statens Naturhistoriske museum, der bl.a. tæller Geologisk Museum og Botanisk Have i den nye organisation kaldet Parkmuseerne.

Et andet tiltag ville være at lave denne tråd på det danske sprog som udgangspunkt, da dette vil øge tilgængligheden og evt. interesse for emnet. Dermed ikke sagt at kommunikationen kun skal være være dansk. Malmø tråden er et godt eksempel på hvordan dialogen kan veksle mellem nationalsproget og engelsk.

Jeg Håber I vil bakke op omkring ideen.

I must admit I think it is better to keep this thread dedicated specifically to the new natural history museum. None of the other museums are likely to generate a lot of construction news since they are located in historic, listed buildings and have no expansion plans as far as I know (except for the new space in front of SMK). If the idea is to include all sorts of other news as well - a new director, a new museum café, an acquisition of a new painting or something like that - it seems to be outside the scope if this forum and thus off topic. I therefore don't really see the idea in including a number of other museums only to get a minimum of extra news and updates to post (and even if something occurs, it will generally be completely separate projects, except that there are plans to introduce common outdoor furniture). Better to keep it nice and simple and dedicated to the new Natural History Museum which is quing to be a quite big and - hopefully - very interesting project.. Not sure if the funding is even in place though.

As for the language issue, I am positive to going for Danish in general. But since we have previously had the discussion and a vote which resulted in a large majority for sticking to English, I think it would be better to take a general decision and have a new vote. No idea though if SSC has any general rules on the matter. Sorry to be a wet blanket.:)

A photo-tour in Botanical Garden today.

The Fantastic summer weather today brought us in the garden today. The good part is there're always space. No crowdy..
The bad thing: your not allowed to sun bathing on the green fields, so that's why there're so few people in here ..
While we wait for the designing proposals, that will appear this month, some silent photos from this peacefull place :)

Momentairy there're some ongoing renovation paid by A.P. Møller Foundation completed this year.

I really, really, really like the winning proposal. The "whale hall" looks simply stunning from the renders, and if they really manage to make it look like they're swimming through an opaque sea it's gonna rock.

I visited zoologist museum a lot as a child and was amazed by the big hall where they had two, huge (for a 6 year old) whale skeletons. But then I visited again a couple of years ago and the place seemed run down and was left feeling very disillusioned. So I really hope the new Natural History Museum can bring back that feeling I had as a kid :) Big hopes!

Seems that Lundgaard & Tranberg were the only one taking this competition seriously.

And I agree Köbtke, it's absolutely stunning, especially the underground exhibitions halls are fantastic.

Nu mangler kun pengene.
1,4 billion dkr. how in earth will get that sum of money, they have to dig deep. I volunteer donate the first 1000 kr. for this project. :banana:

And here's a bit more..
En række private fonde har allerede udtrykt positiv interesse for projektet, mens Staten og Københavns Universitet bidrager med grund, bygninger og renovering til en samlet værdi på omkring 385 millioner kr.

Med afsløringen af vinderprojektet kan arbejdet med at tilvejebringe finansieringen nu gå ind i sin sidste fase. Det forventes, at finansieringen er på plads ved års-skiftet 2012/13, og at byggeriet kan påbegyndes i 2013 og afsluttes i 2016/17.

I completely agree, the right proposal won. Actually I'm a bit disapointed of the other teams proposals, I had expected more. That said, the winning proposal is fantastic, so never mind the others :)

Når man ser projekterne, så kunne der jo kun være en rigtig vinder! Ser ud til at ha været en nem opgave for dommerne :)
I LOVE it :) Fantastisk forslag :)
I guess you right about that. In the 'dommerbetænkning' it says
The Jury recommends unanimously the proposed execution
The only main objection the Jury got, is the 'Whale Hall' that has to be re-worked.
