Dynamic and Sustainable Landscape. ‘The Heart’ is Ikast's new activity and gathering point, and it is buzzing with life from pupils at the International School Ikast-Brande and many other users who utilise the multi-use hall, the reflection room, the street-sport hall etc.
The activity band around the entire building is a dynamic and sustainably designed landscape that connects ‘The Heart’ with the surrounding schools, creating space for activities all around the building. They are based on users' wishes and needs, and can be used in interaction with the building’s interior, or independently.
The activity band and the activities themselves have been designed to be as flexible and spatial as possible.
The aim is for each activity to have at least a dual function and preferably several functions, and for the composition and design to inspire informal meetings, organisation of spontaneous events and friendships between people of different ages, nationalities and circumstances. The activities and facilities include skate and BMX bowls, running slopes, cycling pump tracks, a multipurpose track, a sandpit with volleyball, outdoor fitness and parkour, a pétanque court and a campfire site.

The project achieves a natural transition around ‘The Heart’ – between an urban landscape along the main road Vestergade and a greener landscape extending towards undisturbed forest and fields to the south, around a new rainwater lake.
Betriebsausflug nach Aarhus bei sonnigem Wetter und 17℃, besuchten wir erst C.F. Møller für den sagenhaften Blick auf Aarhus Ø um dann anschließend an dem Kanal zum Kaufhaus Sailing mit der Dachterrasse und dem Rooftop zu gehen. Hier gibt es einen traumhaft schönen Ausblick über die Stadt.
Aarhus ist schon eine Reise wert.
