Our Urban Living Room’ is not just an exhibition, but a 1:1 Cobe project. By creating an exhibition and a book that urges to interaction and play, visitors will help us define the urban living room of the exhibition space – the same way we all help create the urban living rooms of the cities we work in.Dan Stubbergaard, architect and founder, Cobe
The travelling exhibition "Our Urban Living Room" has been shown at the Danish Architecture Center (DAC) in Copenhagen, Denmark, at Laituri in Helsinki, Finland and at Aedes Architecture Gallery in Berlin, Germany.
The exhibition was first developed for the Danish Architecture Center (DAC) in Copenhagen and the huge wooden bookshelf that makes up the exhibition structure was inspired by the timber structure of the old warehouse that was the exhibition venue.
and urban democracy
The exhibition is divided into seven areas, each with its own theme based on specific Cobe projects that tell a story about Copenhagen’s architectural development.
The exhibition offers unique insight into Cobe’s working methods with creative options and sketch models in abundance.

The Helsinki exhibition hall Laituri invited the visitors to step into Cobe’s giant cubic bookcase, which contained models, images, text, drawings and many other exhibits that the exhibition visitors could climb into, touch and listen to.
The Laituri edition of the exhibition differs from the 2016 exhibition at the Danish Architecture Center in that it compares Cobe’s projects in Copenhagen with current and future projects in Helsinki.
