The concept means bringing together the 100,000 m² research and science facilities with the additional mix-use of 100,000 m² public functions, dwellings, student housing, institutions and hotel in a dense urban environment. This concept provides straightforward, simple sustainability rewards, including compact buildings, short services routings, minimal infrastructure, minimal land-use and a good urban micro-climate. It also has great potential for bringing the various users in close contact to each other, and for integrating scientific research with the surrounding community. It is here that school children, senior citizens and businesses will be able to meet, and be inspired by, the research that forms the basis for Denmark’s future as a Knowledge Society. The proposal creates a true urban setting, with small and large public spaces where all extrovert activities are located at ground floor level.
