A new campus area in Aalborg serves as a link for an attractive, future-oriented learning environment
With the new consolidation of educational activities on Mylius Erichsens Vej, the University College of Northern Denmark makes up a new campus area, where functions and buildings are gathered under one roof – with an overall identity and a joint public image.
On the basis of the vision for one overall campus, the new building is located between the existing east wing and the Educational Resource Centre building. The new building is an independent structure in an existing campus cluster of educational buildings, and its central location makes it the new main entrance to the area.
At the heart of the new building is a central atrium, which cuts through the building, forming a meeting place for a vibrant academic environment – a bright, open and dynamic educational powerhouse and centre for development.
The building houses interdisciplinary classrooms, offices with adjacent conference rooms, an auditorium, a teaching library, book storerooms, group spaces and a canteen with a catering centre. The classrooms are organised around the unifying atrium, which also serves as a flexible academic environment.
UCN Mylius Erichsens Vej is the result of consolidating a number of buildings, old and new, including the former Aalborg Teacher Training College, which is regarded as one of the best examples of Nordic Modernism in Denmark.
