Henning Larsen Architects picks up another award for landmark Wave project in Denmark 

The distinctive residential building by Vejle Fjord, the Wave, designed by Henning Larsen Architects, has been selected as winner of the prestigious Civic Trust Award. The Awards were presented at an official ceremony in People’s History Museum on 4th March in Manchester.

With its five characteristic wave crests, the Wave in Vejle appears as a sculptural icon both respecting and challenging its location by the bay. 'The Wave demonstrates how Danish architects are responding to global trends without sacrificing the practicality or well-crafted detailing that have long been a signature of the Danes', British reviewer Michael Webb wrote in the architecture magazine Mark in February 2011.

Henning Larsen Architects won the project in an invited competition in 2005 with the real estate company Bertel Nielsen as the client. Until now, two of the award-winning waves have been completed while the last three are expected to rise in the nearest future.

Last year, the Wave in Vejle won an international LEAF Award. In 2009, the building was selected as the residential building of the year by the Danish trade magazine Byggeri and, in 2010, it won the local Vejle award.
