The landscape is worth a visit in itself, with steep hills and ravines formed by the forces of the last ice age. The view is breathtaking at the highest point, 113 metres above sea level. Skamlingsbanken has been an important meeting place throughout Danish history. Here, great speakers have spoken with a force that has changed social conditions for many.
Throughout the landscape, Yoke has designed several breakpoints where visitors can rest while reading about the monuments in the area.
Hidden in the banks, you will find Samlingsbanken's Visitor Centre. With its architectural form, the building seamlessly blends into the surrounding landscape. For the Visitor Centre, Yoke has designed the exhibition 'The Great Forces', focusing on the inherent and fundamental forces that have shaped this unique natural and cultural-historical meeting place. The exhibition aims to demonstrate the power of nature and the power of speech through a complete exhibition design as well as engaging installations and storytelling. Visitors are introduced to a line of great historical speakers at Skamlingsbanken and influential speeches in general. They are also encouraged to dive into the process of learning how to deliver a powerful speech themselves.
Other than conceptualising, designing, and developing the overall exhibition, Yoke has also developed the visual identity for the museum.
