NORD Wins Competition to Design Marine Education Center in Malmö

NORD Architects has released designs for a new Marine Education Centre in Malmö, Sweden. The Copenhagen-based practice, awarded the commission through an invited competition, hopes to “blur the distinction between architecture and landscape” with a facility that helps users gain a “deeper understanding of marine life.”

“With the changing climate, rising oceans and increased severity of cloudbursts, there is a need more than ever to understand the profound influence that marine life and the oceans have on our lives”, says Johannes Molander Pedersen, partner at NORD Architects.

Passive Houses / Kjellgren Kaminsky

In the spring of this year, Malmo will receive a series of passive houses designed by Kjellgren Kaminsky in collaboration with the local builder Hölleviksnäs förvaltning.  The winning proposal included 4 apartments where the units could be combined with a small store or office, a public micro park or roof top greenery.  “Architecturally we aim to create a small scale and diverse formal language, in harmony with both the surrounding houses and the future tenants,” explained the architects.

More about the homes after the break.
