What would you write to a minister?


Letters to the Parliament invites students and practicing architects to write letters

to members of the Danish Parliament as a means of bringing innovative ideas and

visions of the city closer to the decision-makers, and vice versa. 


Letters to the Parliament is part of Letters to the Mayor, a project initiated by

Storefront for Art and Architecture in 2014. This particular iteration is organized in

partnership with the Aarhus School of Architecture and RISING Architecture.

This project launches on April 28th, where the Exhibition Building at Aarhus School of

Architecture transforms into a “Parliament of Architecture”. 


Letters to the Parliament is part of the international festival, Rising Architecture. The

letters are a prelude for a public debate that will take place on September 11th at the

Aarhus School of Architecture. The event is a contribution to ReThink Aarhus,

European Capital of Culture 2017.
