Courtesy of C.F. Møller Architects

C.F. Møller Architects have won in an invited competition to design a new building for the Herningsholm Vocational School in HerningDenmark. The new building consists of three angular building volumes, brought together under a single sloping roof, which responds to its context among other buildings on the school’s campus by going from three stories on the Southern end to two in the North.

The architects describe the building as being “designed inside-out… as well as outside-in”, with a dual focus on providing optimal learning spaces inside but also on providing learning spaces in the three outside areas defined by the building’s volume.

Venice Biennale 2014: Danish Pavilion to Reintroduce the Power of Aesthetics

What does butterflies, quantum mechanics, poetry and dirt have to do with architecture? In the Danish pavilion at the 2014 Venice Architecture Biennale, you are invited to sense, wonder, be curious and reflect when you meet the smell of dirt, read Niels Bohr’s letter to Einstein, hear the sound of poetry and burry your toes in pine needles. The pavilion reintroduces the forgotten power of aesthetics as the complementary to the rational. It argues that the two together form the foundation for our future decision making.

Danish firm C.F. Møller has won first place in a competition to design an extension and renovation of Vendsyssel Hospital in Hjørring, Denmark. This winning proposal will add 14,000 square meters to the existing structure, incorporating a new treatment center, a ward for mothers and children, and a rooftop children’s playground. The new facilities are arranged around large courtyards, and make use of large windows to display the path of travel through the hospital. This helps make navigating through the large building as easy as possible.

The biennale brings together people and organizations that work with media and the built environment: With media facades, with urban screens and with buildings that communicate – be it with colorful LEDs, flashing light bulbs, or with heat-sensitive concrete that ’freezes’ the shadows of passers-by. Across professions and nationalities, participants will create and discuss the media architecture of the future. And they will investigate how media architecture shapes people’s lives in the cities of the world.
