Just recently I had the chance to attend a good friend’s graduation in Copenhagen University and we decided to pay a visit to the university nearby, that from the outside is pure glass and industrial design and on the inside…well, inside we were astonished.
I am not sure if the photos do any justice to this place, it was dark and I didn’t want to use the flash and annoy the students around, so a lot of edit had to take place in these pictures… But, I can safely say this is by far the best university building I have seen. From an architectural and educational point of view, I give my respect to the designer.
The rooms that extend out of the walls are actually group rooms so you can sit quietly with your group and work without running to each other’s houses or other noisy places. Moreover, you don’t feel closed in 4 walls, you actually have a view! The place was full of students playing board games and computer online games, since also I believe some of the university courses are game theory and game design. Cool, huh? The university was equipped with gym and a Friday bar, making it a very good choice for hanging out there instead of running in the city to find a place. Now, I briefly stayed there and had a look, but if I was a student again, I would love to be in a university like this one!
