MVRDV + COBE break ground on a folk high school as part of roskilde masterplan

 

in denmark, the collaborative team of MVRDV and COBE has broken ground on a high school that forms part of roskilde’s ROCKmagneten masterplan. student housing will also be constructed alongside the educational facility, with both new projects joining a gold-studded rock museum that opened last year. ‘roskilde festival folk high school’ is set to be completed by autumn 2018, while the student accommodation should be finalized by the end 2017.

designed by MVRDV and COBE, the 3,000 square meter high school will be situated inside a former concrete factory, maintaining its industrial shell. internally, a series of volumes will be added, accommodating classrooms and other facilities. ‘the continuous industrial interior is not only maintained but enriched, acting as a collective stage for activities for students,’ explains the design team. the boxes include an auditorium for 150 people, a tribune for open discussions, a music studio, a workshop, and architecture, dance, and art classrooms.

the school is based on the ideals of the roskilde festival, one of europe’s largest music events. the institution is the first newly-established folk high school in denmark in 45 years, and will have no curriculum or exams. both students and teachers will live on site during the school’s courses, which will place an emphasis on creative and humanistic topics.
