JMAYERH_DanfossUniverse_09The project consists of an extension of Danfoss Universe Science Park. Danfoss Universe is a science park in Denmark, embedded in the agricultural landscape of Nordborg next to the founder’s home and the Danfoss HQ. It opened in May 2005 and has been expanding due to its considerable success.

JMAYERH_DanfossUniverse_05JMAYERH_DanfossUniverse_02The masterplan for Danfoss Universe Phase 2 includes an exhibition building (Curiosity.Center) and a restaurant (Food.Factory) which extends the summer based outdoor park into the winter months by enclosing spaces for exhibitions and scientific experiments.

The new buildings rise up from the ground and provide spaces, which articulate the fusion of outdoor landscape and indoor exhibition. This active ground modulates according to program and location in the park. The endpoints of the buildings blur the line between building and park by offering inside-out spaces as display areas and projection surfaces related to the temporary exhibitions inside. Silhouettes, as groups of land formations, define the unique newly programmed horizon line of Danfoss Universe.JMAYERH_DanfossUniverse_08
