AART architects opens iconic education centre

29.09.2013 / On Saturday 28 September 4,000 guests attended the inauguration of VUC Syd's new education centre, which is located on Haderslev's waterfront, providing the setting for a future-oriented, flexible and digital educational environment. The 8,600-m² education centre is Haderslev's largest building in recent years. The inauguration included a wealth of cultural contributions and speeches, for example by AART architects and Zeni Arkitekter, who talked about the vision, which lies at the heart of the education centre's architecture and design.
Thanks to its unique location, the education centre has been designed as an iconic atrium building, which with a 360° view of the town and the harbour. The education centre also challenges the traditional notion of permanent classrooms in favour of a more flexible educational environment. As Anders Tyrrestrup, a partner in AART architects, emphasised in his speech at the inauguration ceremony, the result is an unconventional and far more vibrant educational environment. Instead of permanent classrooms all lessons take place in group areas, presentation spaces, dialogue cubicles and quiet zones, which provide totally new opportunities for a more diverse approach to education.
