AART architects among the frontrunners in welfare

26.01.2016 / We consider it our primary task to create opportunities for people and society in a broader context. We are therefore proud to be selected for Velfærdens Innovationsdag 2017 (The Innovation Day on Welfare), when for the eighth consecutive year the Danish think tank Mandag Morgen brings together welfare frontrunners with a focus on welfare development in today’s Denmark. The innovation day takes place on January 26 in Copenhagen and showcases cross-disciplinary solutions that have proven to turn today's welfare challenges into tomorrow's opportunities.
  
Among the solutions is our education centre for VUC Syd in Haderslev, Denmark, where we have challenged the traditional notion of a school consisting of permanent classrooms. Instead, the education centre appears as an open and fully digital learning environment linked together by a bright atrium and varying educational zones. It has been a great success, as it has attracted more than 50 percent more students, reduced the drop-out rate significantly and given even more young people the courage to continue studying after the final exam. Actually, 200 percent more young people carry on to either university or technical school.
