A collaboration between Friis & Moltke and WE architects has won the competition to design Roskilde Campus, a new university complex in Roskilde, Denmark. The Campus will be a new 10,000 square meter educational area for 1,500 students in the fields of marketing, IT, and food engineering, made up of renovation and 4,000 square feet of new space. 

Three main concepts, community, respect, and durability, have driven the overall design process.

In order to support community, the design features flexible spaces for diverse programs, such as large-scale events, informal meetings, intimate conversations, breaks, parties, and interdisciplinary creative and social interaction.

Similarly, the project seeks to “respect” the needs of its users—both large groups and individuals—by creating a variety of learning environments conducive to a wide range of learning styles.

Furthermore, the durability of the campus is emphasized in its design, which is intended to meet current requirements, but also to accommodate future needs.
