Aarhus School of Architecture

Aarhus Denmark

Overview

Re-Format’s submission for the new School of Architecture competition in Aarhus Denmark was driven by its unique semi-industrial context. The scheme generates a series of linked contrasting public and private urban spaces defined by the ‘imprint’ of the previous historic uses.

The architectural concept was to create an adaptable enclosure that would be a catalyst for generating alternative methods of teaching. The utilitarian nature of the buildings helps to promote alteration and transformation whilst avoiding the rigid determinism associated with ‘iconic’ statement buildings.
