Innovative Site Design in Copenhagen: A Lifed Football Field School Expansion by BIG

Innovative Site Design in Copenhagen: A Lifed Football Field School Expansion by BIG | sustainable architecture | Scoop.it

Following their completion of Gammel Hellerup High School’s Multi-purpose hall in 2013, Bjarke Ingels Group has added a 1,400 square meter building for cultural activities. The new two-level addition provides students with generous spaces for creative learning, while increasing the capacity of the school.

Located between the multi-purpose hall and football fields, the new arts building connects the sports areas with the existing educational facilities in a continuous flow. By placing parts of the new building beneath the football pitch, the students are able to walk through the sunken sports hall at the center of the school’s courtyard, to the classrooms, cafeteria, and out to the main entrance at street level. The roof of the new arts building extend the school’s existing football fields into a green carpet that serves as informal seating to overlook sports events.

UN City by 3XN Architecture in Copenhagen

UN City by 3XN Architecture in Copenhagen | sustainable architecture | Scoop.it

The new regional head office of the United Nations is designed with clear references to the UN’s identity and values: It is a building that physically reaches out to all parts the world, while the sculptural staircase in its core reflects the UN’s work to create global dialogue.

Located on an artificial island the building is naturally separated from its immediate surroundings, while still being highly visible from both the city and the water.

Green Lighthouse, Copenhagen: Denmark's First Public Carbon-Neutral Building

Green Lighthouse, Copenhagen: Denmark's First Public Carbon-Neutral Building | sustainable architecture | Scoop.it

Located in Copenhagen, Denmark, the Green Lighthouse is the first CO2 neutral public building in the country.

Designed by Christensen & Co Architects, the project features a circular shape and adjustable louvers mirroring the course of the sun, which is the main source of energy.

The project is based on a new experiment with the energy which consists of a supply combination of district heating, photovoltaic solar heating and cooling and seasonal storage. The building’s design led to a 70% reduction of the energy consumption due to its round shape which features adjustable louvers that follow the sun’s course.

Rich, green, urban – Copenhagen’s “hedonistic sustainability”

Rich, green, urban – Copenhagen’s “hedonistic sustainability” | sustainable architecture | Scoop.it
Young architects in Copenhagen, Denmark are designing buildings and infrastructure that aim to be environmentally sound without sacrificing a bit of the convenience and pleasure that is synonymous with an affluent urban lifestyle.

Can the residents of the Danish capital have their cake and eat it too?

Award-winning architect Bjarke Ingels of BIG seems to think so. He believes the way towards sustainability is not by inconveniencing people, but rather by re-engineering the structures of society to make them less wasteful...
