The Gallery exhibits photographs and videos of the Superkilen Urban Park that BIG architects developed in Copenhagen. Superkilen is home to more than 60 nationalities, and is considered to be one of the most ethnically diverse and socially challenged neighbourhoods in the Danish capital. The residents of the area were closely involved in designing the park to make the ethnic diversity remarkably visible.
