Shaped like a ship, the Arken Museum of Modern Art is mostly known for its maritime-inspired architecture comprising of a long, diagonal slice jutting out from the sea. Completed in 1996 by still-then student Søren Robert Lund (at age 25!), the museum space was then expanded in early 2008.
Today, the museum’s conceptual purpose is the interpretation of modern man’s existence and the constant exploration of new art forms. If that sounded like a gaggle of nothing to you, think of household names like Damien Hirst, Jeff Koons, and Olafur Eliasson—all of whom are on permanent display at Arken—and you’ll know what we mean.
