‘We have chosen to cast much of the concrete on the building site. This gives the concrete a handsome finish and a more varied surface than pre-cast elements would. You can see it’s a living material. And the beautiful craftsmanship becomes evident’, says Kristine Leth Juul, Prorector at Aarhus School of Architecture.
A sneak peek of a finished space in the building
Recently, a so-called mock-up room with light fixtures and ventilation systems was constructed to give you an idea of what a finished room in the building will look like.
The first large steel staircase of seven planned for the building will be installed this January. Work will then proceed on the carcass, which will be completed by the end of May. The topping out ceremony is scheduled for June this year.
