Navitas

The competition proposal for Navitas Park, which will house the Aarhus School of Engineering, the Aarhus School of Marine and Technical Engineering, and a new science park focusing on energy and sustainability, takes its cue in the prominent situation at the waterfront in Aarhus.

A sloping roof is the distinctive element of the competition proposal. The roof unites and gives character to the new building. The roof is a landscape in itself, with integrated courtyards, terraces and test fields for education and research purposes, and will create a lively building. The terraced landscape democratizes the view of the harbour and the water side. At the same time the aim of the construction is to be in harmony with the existing city skyline, to throw minimal shade, and to keep clear the view of the harbour from the neighboring buildings.

The aim is to make Navitas Park an international front runner in the development of sustainable energies and technologies, and the new buildings will be classified as low-energy class 1, using increased insulation, solar cells, and heat pumps, which make use of the temperature difference in the water.

In combination with this the ground floor displays technical utilities, sensors and webcams helping students to monitor and explore their area of expertise by comparing theory and real world performance.
