Collaborative group win competition for lab and teaching buildings at Uni of Copenhagen 

A team consisting of Ramboll Denmark, Christensen & Co Architects (CCO), Vilhelm Lauritzen Architects, GHB Landscape Architects, Ramboll UK, Ramboll SE and Collin Gordon Associates have won the competition to build a new science lab and educational building for Copenhagen University.

Dean of Copenhagen University, Ralf Hemmingsen, said: “Bohr would have been proud if he could see this project. In addition to bringing the laboratory standard completely up to date, the winning project fulfills the demands of future education and research. The project brings together the various educational strands in an open and internationally oriented manner.”

The building will house math, computer science, chemical and physical disciplines, including the Niels Bohr Institute, and will be located in the University Park as a part of North Campus, Copenhagen. The bulk of the Faculty of Science activities are gathered here. The project is to be built in two stages, connected via a skywalk, on either side of a busy road cutting through the northern part of Copenhagen; Jagtvej, Stage 1 is established east of Jagtvej and will be approx. 30,000 sq m in the University Park and Stage 2 to the west of Jagtvej, approx. 15,000 sq m located in a business area.

The competition jury commented: “The winning proposal convincingly brings together the two buildings across Jagtvej, bringing an interesting solution to the problem of crossing the road. The building is a rational and flexible structure with beautiful long balcony pathways and green courtyards.” Stage 1 is expected to be ready in 2014 and Stage 2 in 2015.
