Community center buildings are often merely functional and sometimes even drab, but that's certainly not the case with the Ku.Be House of Culture and Movement. Located in the Danish capital Copenhagen and designed as part of a collaboration between Adept and the MVRDV architecture practice, this building's design features aim to live up to the center's mandate of bringing people together.

The interior of this community center building is visually and functionally divided into different areas, each of which feature different shapes and color themes. This allows people to easily identify the different areas and their facilities. The building also features unusual shapes, volumes and slides that are designed to encourage a sense of play.

The Ku.Be House of Culture and Movement speaks to the power of architecture to lift people's moods, promote engagement and provoke playful behavior.
