The Danish Building & Property Agency and the Aarhus School of Architecture welcome you to the open design competition for New Aarhus School of Architecture – NEW AARCH. In launching this competition we are inviting proposals for the design of the future School of Architecture in Aarhus. When the Aarhus School of Architecture was established in 1965, the intention was that the school would be temporarily housed in the old merchant’s house at Nørreport 20, 8000 Aarhus C, until more appropriate premises could be found, or a completely new school built. 50 years have now passed - and the main address is still Nørreport 20. Today the school is spread across ten different addresses, its physical framework is outdated and no longer meets today’s requirements, either in respect to teaching or to research. The Danish Ministry of Higher Education and Science, the Aarhus School of Architecture and Aarhus Municipality have consequently agreed to plan a new School of Architecture at Godsbanearealerne (an area previously used to accommodate railway freight) at the heart of Aarhus. The building is expected to be inaugurated in 2020.
