DESCRIPTION
 
A Building for Innovative Natural Science
NORD Architects Natural Science Center Bjerringbro The center is an ichnographic light tower for innovative education and knowledge production within natural science.

The purpose is to inspire and enhance the abilities for the teaching of the natural science in the educational system on a national scale. The center is one big educational laboratory embracing the facilities for lecturing, project development and educational processes that can enhance the interest and stimulate young people during secondary school and high school.

NORD Architects Natural Science Center Bjerringbro The Natural Science Center is designed by the young office NORD Architects from Copenhagen. The competition was won in 2007.

The building is a monolithic cylinder generated in a series of geometrical transformations. Towards the exterior the building looks homogeneous with a façade cut in different ways by terraces, window openings and translucent openings. The façade is covered by u-glass profiles, that changes character when weather and light conditions change. At night it is lit from the inside like a light tower on the seaside. Inside the building there are differentiated spatial experiences, flexible areas and internal connections. The Natural Science Center is placed on a hillside towards the north and it is the first thing you see when entering the city. On the large plot the “Natural Science Gardens” will be established as an external educational site open for the public.

“We are very proud of the result. It has become a very good story to tell that we as a young office in collaboration with the client and entrepreneur have delivered a building in time and within the budget. This center is an example of how to create a new type of institution aimed at the future need in terms of learning and innovating.” Morten Rask Gregersen and Johannes Pedersen, partners in NORD Architects, Copenhagen.
