AART Architects Transforms Danish Hospital Into University

AART Architects have won the competition to transform the Aarhus Municipal Hospital into a new campus for Aarhus University in Denmark.

In an effort to renew and enhance the original qualities of the site—like its red tile façades and consistent compositions of public space—as well as to support academic and urban life of the future, the project will uphold “the site’s historical potential by paving the way for new prospects to create a forward-looking transformation of this unique spot.”

The development plan is based on four principles: to reinforce the historic potential of the site; to connect it to the city that surrounds it; to generate interaction with modern ways of life; and to encapsulate it in an enduring layout, explained the architects in a recent press reelease.

The project will feature new opportunities for research, business, housing, cafés, and other various programs, all with the goal of “[enriching] the story of Aarhus […] as a vibrant, attractive university city for the benefits of students, researchers, citizens, and companies.”
