After choosing British firm BDP to design its masterplan (over proposals from Mecanoo and seven others), Copenhagen's Bispebjerg hospital has now announced the all-star shortlists of firms who will compete to design two of the hospital's new buildings.
The “New Hospital and Mental Health Bispebjerg” is a complex 10-12 year project involving the construction of new buildings, the preservation/renovation of listed buildings, and the mergers of the current Frederiksberg and Bispebjerg Hospitals and the Mental Health Centre Copenhagen with the Children’s Mental Health Centre Bispebjerg. All construction will occur while the hospitals remain in operation and at full capacity.
Learn more about the project - including the architects vying to design its new buildings - after the break.
Masterplan / BDP with Danish architects TKT and Rambøll Danmark
The competition brief required that new buildings "harmonize" with each other, the site's extensive gardens, and the original 1913 pavilions (listed by the Heritage Agency of Denmark). According to the project brief, the hospital complex is meant to become "an area of health within the city of the future, a park for recreation and healthy, preventive activities for the current and future patients."
BDP, TKT and Rambøll Danmark's winning proposal envisions the hospital as a city divided into four distinctive quarters and with a green park at the center: "The general hospital quarter [is located] in the northern part towards Tuborgvej, the mental health quarter in the north-eastern part, the historic quarter with administration, research and laboratories in the southern, heritage-listed part and a green park quarter with a central entrance area in the middle."
