bjarke ingels group plans faroe islands education centre

BIG, in collaboration with fuglark, lemming & eriksson, sámal johannesen, martin e. leo and kj elrad have designed the new education centre in marknagil to serve as a base for coordination and future development of all educational programs in the region. as the largest educational building project in the country’s history, the institution combines faroe islands gymnasium, torshavns technical college and business college of faroe islands in one building, housing 1.200 students and 300 teachers.

 

located on a hillside, 100 m above the sea level with a panoramic view overlooking the sea, mountains and harbor of torshavn, the project is designed as a vortex, radiating out towards its surroundings while at the same time focusing in on the school’s inner landscape. each institution is organized as a school in a school with ideal conditions for each, while creating a sense of community.
