WE ARCHITECTURE and Sophus Søbye Architects, both young Danish firms, have been awarded first prize for their competition entry for a cultural center in Denmark’s Rudersdahl municipality. “The future Mariehøj cultural center draws a clear profile in the landscape. With a new foyer, the culture center will get a new face that invites in all people in Ruderdahl’s municipality and also a heart that can bring together and highlight the many users and activities in the house,” explained the architects.

More images and more about the proposal after the break.

The proposal seeks to merge with the landscape and create open spaces for a range of activities.  Through reorganization and rebuilding, better spaces for individual activities are created while different intersections of activities and meetings points are also designed.

The center attempts to connect people as a way to bring people together socially; it creates a space where “new connections across all interests and ages may dwell.”
