Kangiata Illorsua - Ilulissat Icefjord Centre
This book describes the creation of the Icefjord Centre, from initial thoughts and visions to the final result. This is the English version of the book, which is also available in a Danish and Greenlandic version.
Like a connecting link between city and fjord, Kangiata Illorsua – Ilulissat Icefjord Centre lies at the mouth of Ilulissat Icefjord. The permanent exhibition Sermeq pillugu Oqaluttuaq – The Story of Ice offers visitors an understanding of Greenlandic nature and culture, the rich life on the Icefjord and the history of human presence here over thousands of years, as well as insights into climate change, which is having a clear impact on the Icefjord.
The Icefjord Centre is a spectacular attraction in its own right. Designed by the internationally acclaimed architect Dorte Mandrup, the building overlooks the landscape of this UNESCO World Heritage Site, and from its rooftop locals and visitors have outstanding views of this magnificent scenery.
This book describes the creation of the Icefjord Centre, from initial thoughts and visions to the opening day. Local citizens from Ilulissat describe daily life on the Icefjord, while Her Majesty Queen Margrethe speaks of her love for Greenland.
