Aarhus University is a unique institution in Denmark, within research, education and culture. From 1932 when the first corner stone was laid, the yellow buildings in the green park have been synonymous with knowledge, research and teaching at the highest level.

The overall vision in this project has been to create the best environment for research, study and work.

The spatial potentials and cultural heritage will be brought into a contemporary context, creating openness and connections between the city and the university. It will be build with a distinctive and aesthetically expression and with respect for the context, in both the small and the large scale.

In the University Park, the landscape contains the past, the present and the future concurrently, and it is this timelessness that is the strength of the landscape. Here our job is, not to create a new form of architecture, but to bring the existing architecture into a contemporary context.


In the establishing of the new building, the focus must be on the spatial relationships. New patterns of movement will occur across the park and thus a unique opportunity to create places for development, in the meeting with the city. These various spaces allows for completely different experiences based on completely different scale and urban spatial characters.
