C.F. Møller and TRANSFORM has won an international competition to design a new campus extension for the Copenhagen Business School (CBS), Denmark’s principle business university. A collaboration with C.F. Møller Landscape, Transform and Moe, the project aims to become the “world’s best city-integrated campus.” The masterplan, organized around four new public parks, will transform a significant, 31000-square-meter site in the city’s Frederiksberg district on top a nexus of old and new metro lines.

"One of the strategies in the master plan is that the new buildings will cover a relatively small land area to allow as much space as possible for urban spaces and urban life,” explains C.F. Møller partner Julian Weyer. “Clusters of compact, multi-functional buildings with green roof areas create essentially versatile spaces where outdoor spaces converge. Both pre-existing and new buildings will be flexibly appointed so that their interiors and design expression can be changed. The buildings will be better integrated into the landscape and their diversity elegantly expressed in a holistic synthesis of buildings and landscape.”

"We have defined clear meeting places at every location where there is an interface with surrounding areas of the city. We have also merged traffic-related and green elements. The master plan will therefore naturally become integrated into its context and attract a wide variety of user groups.”

C.F. Møller's master plan, selected by CBS, Frederiksberg Municipality, Metroselskabet and Realdania, applies the DGNB (Green Building Council Denmark) criteria and will meet CBS' expectations regarding sustainability. It was chosen from a shortlist of six, which included proposals from BIG, COBE, JUUL | FROST Arkitekter, Schønherr, Tegnestuen Vandkunsten and C.F. Møller. In the second decisive phase, C.F. Møller competed against COBE and Tegnestuen Vandkunsten.
