The Award will be presented by the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts on 30 March as they ‘acknowledge a person who has made outstanding achievements in the field of Architecture’.

Kim Herforth Nielsen receives the Medal for his ability to ‘give rise to a new type of architecture’. Through the years Kim Herforth Nielsen has worked with a clear architectural vision and prioritized the creation of architecture that makes a difference. He is very appreciative of the professional recognition that comes with the Medal.

"It is a great honour for me to receive the C.F. Hansen Medal.
