The underground Danish Maritime Museum (MS Museet for Søfart) situated at the old shipbuilding yard between the Culture Yard (Kulturværftet) and the Castle Kronborg in Elsinore / Helsingør, Denmark. (The view to which was not allowed to be disturbed as Kronborg is on the UNESCO World Heritage List). The museum is built in and around the old dry dock from 1955 in a bold architectural mixture of a raw industrial expression in concrete and modern minimalism in steel, glass, and aluminium. The sloping bridges leads down to the former shipyard's old dry dock to the entrance of an underground museum designed by the renowned architecture company BIG (Bjarke Ingels Group). M/S The Danish Maritime Museum is nominated for EMYA 2015 and Mies van der Rohe Award.
