The project seeks to design a new Aarhus School of Architecture as a proposal for a future architectural competition. The project is located in the centre of Aarhus at the Godsbane area, which today is an emerging creative area. The proposal integrates the context into the design; especially the unfinished axis from the city hall will be transformed into an architectural journey, climaxing in the centre of the building.
The proposal is a mix of creative workshops, studios, workspaces and a large public area, linking the school to the city. The proposal focuses on adaptability, effectiveness and the user experience. The functions will be designed based on modern theories of effectiveness and learning environment with an optimal indoor climate.
An integrated design process has been utilized, with a general awareness of construction, sustainability and the spatial experience throughout the project. The project takes its point of departure in: a pre-screening made by Signal, analyses of the context, a proposal for a development plan of the area and user interviews are used as point of departure, which will be referred to throughout the project.
