Dutch firm C F Møller Architects, in collaboration with SLA and Rambøll, have been declared as winners of a competition to design the extension to the Panum Complex at the University of Copenhagen in Denmark.

The expansion will include the construction of a 16-storey science tower and an urban park consisting of a series of smaller buildings.

The smaller buildings will be used for common functions, and will include auditoriums, classrooms, canteens, a show lab, conference rooms, a book café and a science plaza.

The complex will have an open and outward-looking appearance and include a transparent ground floor along with a café, lounge and viewing points located on top of the building.

The façade is built up in the form of a grid structure of storey-high window fields that break up the building's large scale.

Aggebo&henriksen, Cenergia, Gordon Farquharson and Innovation Lab are the other consultants working on the project.
