The Moesgard Museum in Arhus, Denmark is a stunning exhibition hall designed by Henning Larsen Architects. The architects created the museum to blend in almost seamlessly with the Skade hills; only a thin angled sliver of the rooftop is visible from the walking paths that lead to its entrance.

The Moesgard Museum was designed with environmentally friendly cues in mind. A living roof atop the museum creates a miniature ecosystem filled with flowers, moss and grass. The airy museum beneath that living rooftop has ample natural light, plenty of windows and super-high ceilings that make the most of the museum's surroundings.

Henning Larsen Architects was named Designer of the Year in 2010 at the International Design Awards. With designs like the Moesgard Museum, it's easy to see why the group is held in such high regard within the community. Stats for Hidden Hillside Exhibition Halls Trending: Older & Chilly
