Danish architects BIG shared with us their 7,000 sqm school project for the city of Asminderød in Denmark. More images and architect’s description after the break.

A pristine undulating hillside serves as the backdrop for the future Vilhelmsro school and its outdoor activities. The sloping landscape and the building’s sloping roofs merge into one continuous experience no matter if one is inside, outside, on the ground floor or walking across its green roofs. The surrounding landscape does not only serve as an aesthetic backdrop, but is also integral to the school’s curriculum which focuses on nature and sustainability. Formed as sloping landscaped bands, the building merges with the surrounding nature and allows daylight to stream into all of the school’s class rooms.
