In this episode, Cherise is joined by Mikkel Hermann Sørensen, Partner and Architect at Christensen & Co (or CCO) in Copenhagen, Denmark. They discuss Learning Center Nærheden in Høje-Taastrup, Denmark.

You can see the project here as you listen along.

The Learning Centre is the first public school in Denmark based on 21st Century Learning Skills – also known as STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics).

The city had an overall vision for “The Learning Center.” The goal was to create a place that prepared children for the changing society of the future, where they must, among other things, contribute to a more sustainable world.

The building includes an integrated daycare, a sports hall, and cultural facilities for the surrounding community. The concept was to design a building that doubled as a pallet for children to learn and play. The overall structure was created as a grid, which can integrate a number of elements and functional requirements, without compromising the overall architectural concept.
