Henning Larsens - IT University, Orestad, Copenhagen

IT University of Copenhagen

Henning Larsen (born 20 August 1925) is a Danish architect. He is internationally known for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs building in Riyadh and the Copenhagen Opera House. He is the founder of the company that bears his name, Henning Larsen Architects (Formerly Henning Larsens Tegnestue A/S). ---
New university research and teaching building (ITU) in the northern part of Ørestad. Between ITU’s two main buildings there is an impressive inner courtyard, an atrium. The five storeys are open to the atrium and from the balconies you can survey activities elsewhere in the building. A number of group and meeting rooms have been extended out into the atrium, suspended like a long row of see-through ‘drawers’ that have been pulled out to different lengths. On the ground floor you will find the common facilities; lecture halls, students’ café, canteen and library. All research and teaching areas are located on the upper floors. The inner courtyard has been decorated with a digital art installation. Screens have been staged on several ‘drawers’ that can display digital images and animations. The intention is to make the digital works of art interactive and controllable from computers and mobile phones, or they will be dependent on traffic and temperature inside and outside the building.
