THIS is happening on the South Harbour of Aarhus.
Aarhus is Denmark’s second-largest city with a population size of around 350,000. It is known for its architecture, mix of world-class cuisine, nice art galleries, and its laid-back atmosphere.
Filmby Aarhus is the centre for film and media production in Jutland. 80 companies and hundreds of creative heads work side by side. The aim is to boost the development of media and to highlight the city’s cultural forces through film and media production.
Filmby Aarhus is placed in raw and industrial surroundings on the South Harbour. The South Harbour with its harbour area and old meatpacking district is still a diamond in the rough with lots of young and creative energy continually moving in.
Address: Filmby Aarhus, Filmbyen 23, 8000 Aarhus C, Denmark
Turbinehallen is centrally located in the heart of Filmby Aarhus. The building is a fascinating example of industrial architecture around 1900, and at the same time a glorious example of how a worn-out building can be revived.
The place was built and designed by the architect Fritz Koch, who also designed the original Langelinie pavilion and the well-known octagonal Copenhagen telephone kiosks.
