Are our regular classrooms optimal for the divergent and ever-changing teaching process?

Creative development is often chaotic and complex, where hundreds of different aspects have to be considered. This project is based on the creation of a building that contains all diverse and complex parts of the innovation process, but at the same time is a simple and clean space, in which light, air and natural materials create clarity and overview. Here is room for great ideas and the opportunity and ability to think outside the habit. The building was created for multifunctional use in different user scenarios. Innovation, learning and presentation.

For many years I have been working with various areas of concept development and innovation. It is only natural to use this experience and knowledge in collaboration with a school like Dalum.  "The future looks particularly exciting when we have the tools to grasp it.

The Academy of Agricultural Economics in Odense dedicates a whole week of innovation to the new innovation center designed by ARK +


With their thoughts full of inspiration, the students present their best ideas and after a rigorous selection process, the team 5-6 will have really good ideas, which will be translated into business concepts during the week. The students will use the school's external network and refine the ideas in collaboration with professional business developers and innovators. Students are pushed out of their comfort zone and challenged on their creativity, adaptability and business acumen. The week ends in Löwenhöhle, where four professional business developers and entrepreneurs choose their favorite project.
