At DISSING+WEITLING our goal is to create optimal spaces for human activity – at work, in the home and in the public sphere. We have a clear and accommodating approach, characterised by user-centric solutions that pay particular attention to the physical, cultural and environmental context of each project.
DISSING+WEITLING was formed in 1971 to continue the work started by Arne Jacobsen. Since then, the company has refined and developed this Scandinavian design tradition with works that have set new standards in design and architecture.
Over the years, we have built up a professional portfolio that includes some of the world’s most spectacular bridges and distinctive international business headquarters, as well as new residential areas, historic building renovations, and interior and product design.
Regardless of scale, each project demonstrates a close relationship between technology and design – and we continuously explore the boundaries between design, innovation and the environment. We seek to incorporate high-tech, sustainable solutions as an integrated part of the overall design strategy right from the first sketch.
The DISSING+WEITLING team is characterised by a broad range of professional profiles, interests, ages and nationalities. Our working environment is characterised by an informal tone, interdisciplinary discussions, individuality and enthusiasm for our projects.
The Danish architectural firm Dissing+Weitling has drawn an eight-kilometre-long elevated cycle path in the port of Xiamen in the south-eastern part of China. It is not only the first of its kind in China; it is also the world’s longest. Built in record time, the bridge is now complete. The opening will take place during the ongoing Chinese New Year’s celebrations.
