Bjarke Ingels and his groundbreaking team at BIG have completed an epic addition of several school facilities to the campus of a Danish high school. Located north of Copenhagen, the campus now features the school's art facilities underneath a football field that is also connected to the preexisting underground gym that boasts a courtyard on its roof added by BIG in 2013.
In typical Bjarke Ingels fashion, the intriguing new school facilities combine concepts of function that one would not expect to intersect. The unique multiuse space is a welcome and refreshing take on traditional school spaces and the limitations of those norms.
This stunning reinterpretation of the interactions between buildings across a single campus is sure to spur new, similar designs. The updated school facilities are a well-suited followup to BIG's initial installation of the sunken sports facilities.
