Inviting the outside world in
The project’s architectural concept has found its inspiration in today’s hectic media flow, which the students need to navigate. Here, openness, connectedness and adaptability are key factors – and they will be so in the new building as well. Large window fronts in the façade create transparency and invite the outside world to come inside; flexibility in the spatial design allows for changes and amendments should future demands dictate so – and the vast, open atrium connects all seven floors vertically and visually.
The atrium functions as a central plaza with a café, canteen, an ‘inspiratorium’ and room for various events such as concerts, talks and townhalls. Its most stunning feature, “The Green Line”, is a staircase that runs the entire height of the house. Like a verdant wave flowing from the nearby Amager Commons into the building, it splashes upwards from floor to floor, adorned with hanging plants and greenery, until it reaches the top, flooding out onto the roof, where a large terrace offers visitors expansive views of the green surroundings and adjacent city center.
