" It requires insanely many resources and skills to build an artistic project like the Harbour Magnets that spearheaded the 2017 Aarhus Festival - and we are so pleased we teamed up with Ambiente. They instantly understood the architects' highflying visions, adapted them to real life and had perfect control of all the legal and safety regulations that apply to building in public spaces. Their experience and professionalism was invaluable to the success of the project".

Developing, building and installing architectonic works

The humble, yet intriguing architectonic works “Harbour Magnets” at the 2017 Aarhus Festival did indeed live up to their name by attracting thousands of people to the harbour front of Denmark’s second largest city. Ambiente helped develop, build and install five of the eight popular magnets – which took our craftsmen 33 meters up in the air to put up flags and involved getting a massive helium balloon to hang 9 meters above ground to resemble a full moon.
