MARTINS ARCHITECTURE OFFICE

New Aarhus school of architecture

The New Aarhus School of Architecture proposes an ambiguous shape structured over a main didactic philosophy emphasizing a horizontal hierarchy (democratic access/ knowledge sharing) instead of a vertical (value pyramid scheme) axis. The building is subtly defragmented to touch the ground and also to exploit the approach-sense in terms of scale.
