COBE, Sted and Oluf Jørgensen win the competition to design a 8,500 m2 Science & Innovation Hub at Aalborg University, Denmark.

 

The building rises as a terraced volume that forges new connections and urban intensification at the university campus. In order to promote idea generation and innovation, users will be able to inhabit a new type of un-programmed workshop space – named Garages - where the users define their own rules and methods of co-working. The garages, along with an atrium street are the innovative basis for informal learning, acting as a supplement to the formal education and research offered at Aalborg University.

 

The Science & Innovation Hub is set for completion end of 2021.
