DTU CAS - Facility Management, a dynamic building that creates balance in interaction and contrast with the surroundings
The winning project creates a building that has a vibrant, dynamic and varied impact, which only adds to the qualities of the major Campus plan. The principal idea of the project was to create a dynamic building with a clearly defined architectural statement, which would both contrast and harmonise with its surroundings. This aspect of tension generates life among the various buildings and the architecture stands out.
The building is designed as a clear rectangle, in which climate screens and solar shading are separated as individual elements, contributing to the expression of the building’s function as a test centre and workplace for a broad spectrum of working situations.
The building’s layout draws inspiration from the overall structure of the campus, thus working with a recognisable concept involving four structural quadrants. At the heart of the building is a large core, which creates spaces right up through the storeys and lends structure to the building’s functions. The design of the building creates a powerful identity around the technical and facility functions on campus and adds new layers of identity to the site.
