VIDEO: Skidome Denmark – The World’s Biggest Skidome

YouTube Preview Image

As we shared with you earlier last month, Danish architectural firm, CEBRA, in partnership with Ski Travel Agency Danski, is working on a new project of epic proportions: the world’s largest Skidome. Skidome Denmark will be shaped rather like a snow-flake, with three 700m, criss-crossing arches (the tallest one reaching 110 m high). While a structure that size is hard to wrap one’s head around, this cool new video gives a great idea of the Skidome’s awesome scale.

More info and images of the World’s Largest Skidome, after the break…

 Our friends from CEBRA just shared the news of their next endeavor for designing a skidome in , .  Serving as more than a series of complex slopes for those to enjoy, the project will become the largest skidome in the world.  When viewed in isolation, the massing’s gentle curves and minimalistic exterior treatment read as a subtle strategy to incorporate the slopes; yet, only when seen at the city scale does the project’s 1,000,000+ sqf  (including a hotel, restaurant and shops) allow the viewer to understand the project’s potential urban presence.

Our friends from CEBRA shared the latest on their newest education building.  After being awarded first prize for their proposal, CEBRA has created a school organized by three bands that respond to functional needs of the building.  These bands are manifested in a visual manner throughout the school, providing a recognizable way-finder for the children and flexibility for the school’s functions and pedagogical principles.

Iceberg Tops Out ©

We love seeing a project through fruition, and after being introduced to the collaborative vision of the Iceberg for Arhus, Denmark, we were anxiously awaiting its construction.  As we have previously shared, the Iceberg, or “Isbjerget” in Danish, was designed as an iconic waterfront marker to invigorate the harbor front’s transformation from a sole industrial entity to a residential and commercial hub.   Construction is swiftly progressing on the four building block, and earlier this week, the team enjoyed the project’s “topping out” ceremony.

CEBRA’s latest landscape project situated in Kildebjerg Ry near Arhus, Denmark, is a bit out of the ordinary.  Moving beyond providing flora, walkways and simple playground amenities, the Pulse Park will feature three distinct activity zones that will provide a place for fitness, meditation and play to benefit the residential and business areas nearby.  These zones create an activating framework for physical activities and exercise while forming an integrated part of the surrounding landscape.

Program: Center for Natural Science and Technology
Competition Year: 2011
Completion Year: 2015


After placing first in the design competition to transform an old mineral water bottling plant into a Science Center, CEBRA will move forward with the adapted proposal upon receipt of a substantial donation from the The A.P. Møller and Chastine Mc-Kinney Møller Foundation.     The  original building will be restored to serve as an interactive national center for science, technology and culture and house the Experimentarium’s diverse exhibition and education activities for the neighboring communities.  CEBRA’s solution of layering a new expression on the historic entity brings science to the forefront while acknowledging contextual cues that create links back to its surroundings.
