C.F. Møller Architects has released images its proposed 470-foot-high (144-meter-high) office tower at the Port of Aarhus in Denmark. Intended as a “bright sculptural landmark,” the scheme combines cultural, retail, and business functions to activate the public realm in a former industrial port area. C.F. Møller’s plans will include the retention of an existing 60,000 square foot (5,600 square meter) industrial complex on the site, which will be opened up to establish a stronger connection between indoor and outdoor spaces. The new tower’s geometry originates from the existing building, forming a dialogue between old and new urban fabric. The 375,000 square foot (35,000 square meter), 38-floor tower is intended as a “bright and slender sculptural landmark” with layered facades to create optimum daylight conditions, attractive views, and a healthy environment. Three cantilevering vertical foyers create multi-orientated geometry, forming a “characterful and textural layering on multiple scales.” View more View full description
