Architecture shapes behaviour. That is why 3XN Architectsaims to create spaces that make us bigger inside. 3XN, a creative architecture office from Copenhagen with about 80 employees, believes that buildings – like people – are more than the sum of their parts. And that it is possible to achieve a synthesis of design, function and context. 3XN applies holistic principles and is constantly exploring the potential for building better, smarter and more beautifully.
The exhibition Mind Your Behaviour highlights the architectural practitioners 3XN and their work to show how architectural design can encourage people to communicate better, arrive at new realisations and come up with new ideas. Mind Your Behaviour is an invitation to approach the world thoughtfully with an inquiring mind. To reflect on how your behaviour is influenced by the space around you.

3XN develops all new architectural designs with behaviour as the central theme. The exhibition focuses on the concept of behaviour as expressed in the seven themes: social behaviour, cultural behaviour, responsible behaviour, public behaviour, human behaviour, learning behaviour, and building behaviour. Spatially as well as theoretically the exhibition shows how these aspects of behaviour are expressed in 3XN's design.
Mind Your Behaviour highlights 3XNs practice and examines how behaviour impinges all phases of the studio’s working processes. The exhibition will provide the visitors with an exclusive insight into the development of 3XNs projects and how the studio communicates spatial qualities through ambience, attention to detail, choice of materials, and light.
The geometry of selected 3XN projects form the basis of the exhibition design, which allows for the visitors to create their own individual experience of the exhibition through their choice of route, mood, detail, material, and perspective. Boards, models and installations will present the following projects among others: Museum of Liverpool, Saxo Bank, Horten, Ørestad College, The Blue Planet, Lighthouse, Middelfart Savings Bank, , Frederiksberg Courthouse, and Kubus.
