Natural Science Architecture By Nord Architects

Copenhagen practice Nord Architects have completed a cylindrical education centre in Bjerringbro, Denmark. Called Natural Science Center, the building and grounds will be used to educate and engage pupils from Danish schools in the sciences. 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. natural_science_architecture.jpg natural_science_architecture_side_image.jpg interior_decoration_of_natural_science_building.jpg interior_design_of_natural_science_architect.jpg
