What would you write to a minister?
In collaboration with Aarhus School of Architecture, Storefront presents Letters to the Parliament: Denmark as part of the global Letters to the Mayor project. Each iteration presents a collection of letters by more than 100 architects, addressing the most pressing issues facing their city.
Letters to the Parliament: Denmark 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.

ABOUT LETTERS TO THE PARLIAMENT
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.
This edition of Letters to the Parliament is the premiere in an open and ongoing series of iterations of this project. To propose an edition in your city, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Special support for Letters to the Parliament: Denmark is provided by Aarhus School of Architecture, The Architecture Project, and Kulturhovedstad 2017.
