LOUISIANA – architecture and landscape

The Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Humlebæk is famous throughout the world as a union of art, architecture and nature. How that union was created is a saga of human struggle, creativity and perseverance that began in the 1800s and continues to this day.

The defining feature of Louisiana’s architecture is the decades-long collaboration between the founder, Knud Jensen, and the two architects, Jørgen Bo and Vilhelm Wohlert, who designed all of the museum buildings between 1956 and 1991.

Their source of inspiration was the natural setting, once described as “de smukkeste Puncter paa hele Kysten.” The buildings they created to preserve that landscape are a record of Louisiana’s evolution: from a small collection of Danish art to a museum of international scope and stature.
