We Believe - Aarhus and London was a major interactive light installation by one of Denmark’s leading female artists, Tine Bech. The project connected two iconic Arne Jacobsen buildings, The Embassy of Denmark in London and Aarhus City Hall Tower in Denmark, to celebrate European Capital of Culture Aarhus 2017.

The project perfectly encapsulated the spirit of European collaboration and cultural exchange. From a control room on a rooftop in Aarhus, members of the public were able to illuminate the architecture of the two buildings. Audiences controlled individual light sections using a series of interactive devices Both buildings are power structures and the aesthetics of the control room, as well as access to it, was essential to the project.
