The Royal Danish Academy of Music
The Radio House is regarded as an architectural masterpiece of Danish Modernism. The previous HQ of Denmark’s Radio, the building complex was inaugurated in 1945 and listed in 1994. It has been home to the Royal Danish Academy of Music since 2008, replete with a concert hall, music studios and rehearsal rooms.
The interior was rebuilt to accommodate the acoustic requirements of the academy while maintaining the original façades and beautiful roof garden. With its rather unique curved shell, the Trinidad Chair has become a popular choice for concert halls, auditoriums and locations where large-scale seating is needed. Moreover, the cut-out fretwork renders the body well-ventilated while seated.
The Danish Broadcasting Corporation commissioned the Radio House to serve as its headquarters. Architect Vilhelm Lauritzen, one of the most influential Danish architects of the 20th century, designed the building with a focus on functionality and modernism. The building's design was heavily influenced by the Bauhaus movement, focusing on clean lines, geometric shapes, and functionalism.
