Danish architecture firm Henning Larsen have just won another competition. This time for the Campus Roskilde at the University College Sealand. This is one of the key concepts of the project proposal for Campus Roskilde selected by an unanimous jury at a press conference on 8 July. Behind the winning proposal is a team consisting of turnkey contractor Enemærke & Petersen, Henning Larsen Architects, COWI Engineers and Thing & Wainø Landscape Architects.
With the new Campus Roskilde, University College Sealand will consolidate its professional bachelor’s programmes covering social education and social work, health and teaching. The new campus will facilitate dialogue and random meetings and provide the students with a feeling of being part of a manifold university environment beating with one pulse. The new campus will consist of four square buildings – slightly rotated towards each other to create an intimate, varied space around the campus square. Under the overhang of the central building, a roofed square will open up towards the rest of the campus stimulating the sense of vibrancy and community among the students.
Campus Roskilde is characterised by a significant green profile where the generous intake of daylight will help lower the energy consumption. The first phase of the building is expected to be completed in 2012.
