Henning Larsen Selected to Design First US Project in Cincinnati

Henning Larsen Architects has been selected to design the new Lindner College of Business for the University of Cincinnati - the Danish firm's first project in the US. Though renderings have yet to be released, the building is expected to "reflects Scandinavian design traditions of putting people, space, and daylight first."

“Physical surroundings and educational achievements are not separate—they're interdependent. A successful educational building also enriches its users, fosters community and improves the daily lives of students and teachers. Our design will give shape to Lindner College of Business’ strong identity and be the catalyst to further its reputation and academic achievements,” said Louis Becker, Principal Partner, Design Director of Henning Larsen Architects and Professor (Adj.) at Aalborg University. Research suggests that students attain 5-14% higher scores on tests taken in rooms with good daylight conditions.

The 250,000-square-foot facility will offer a variety of learning environments, such as "auditoria, group facilities, and shielded workplaces for individual studies."

Henning Larsen was chosen over Foster + Partners and Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios for the job.
