Henning Larsen Architects winning proposal connects all exhibition activities of the museum under one roof. The new museum will be uniquely located in the hilly landscape of Skåde. With its sloping roofscape of grass, moss and flowers in bright colours the building will appear a powerful visual landmark perceptible even from the sea.

Moesgaard Museum

The rectangularly shaped roof plane seems to grow out of the landscape and during summer it will form an area for picnics, barbeques, lectures and traditional Midsummer Day’s bonfires.

The interior of the building is designed like a varied terraced landscape inspired by archaeological excavations gradually unearthing the layers of history and exposing lost cities. The visitor can move through a vivid sequence of exhibitions and scientific experiments – like a traveller in time and space.

With its bright courtyard gardens, terraces and small cave-like “houses-in-the-house”, the museum will invite various new and alternative kinds of exhibitions. The heart of the building is the foyer with a café and outdoor service. From the foyer, the terraced underworld opens up to the light from the roof garden and the impressive view of the Aarhus Bay.
