02 COPEN­HAGEN ON TO A WIN­NER

Identity - - ANTENNAE -

The World Ar­chi­tec­ture News Ed­u­ca­tion Award for 2016 has been won by South Har­bour School, which was de­signed by JJW Ar­chi­tects, one of Den­mark’s largest ar­chi­tec­tural firms. Each floor plan is dif­fer­ent and the heights of rooms vary through­out, with sur­prises and new ex­pe­ri­ences cen­tral to the imag­i­na­tive ap­proach of the school, which also fea­tures a va­ri­ety of hor­i­zon­tal and ver­ti­cal con­nec­tions and spa­ces. Jury mem­bers praised the “re­ally rig­or­ous and in­tel­li­gent plan that is not in any way wil­ful”, as well as for mak­ing use of ev­ery sin­gle space of the 9500-square me­tre scheme.
