The Danish folk high school is based on the Danish author and teacher N.F.S.Grundtvig (1872) idea of the folk high school – a school that in many ways differs from normal high schools, for example, the school has no curriculum and no exams, and both students and teachers are living at the school during a course. Further are the folk high schools often focused on creative and humanistic topics and the common life at the school. Roskilde Festival Folk High School is the first newly-established and built folk high school of its kind in Denmark in 45 years, based on the ideals of the Roskilde festival. The ideals and values are very much influenced by the volunteer engagement, the humanistic focus and creative power, that every year forms and characterise the event and the community of Roskilde festival.

The school is a first if its kind in Denmark and maintains its original industrial concrete factory shell , Image Courtesy © Christopher Malheiros Paris

Viertel Zwei Plus Mixed-Use Residential & Commercial Development in Vienna, Austria by Hariri & Hariri Architecture

 
April 11th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Hariri & Hariri Architecture 

This master-plan includes six buildings and an undulating landscape as a tray holding all the different activities, buildings, technologies and sustainable systems. Each building is unique in shape, form, and size held together by an Interlocking Wrapper in wood and stone. In contrast to the typical repetitive and contemporary residential projects of the 20th century, we have maximized the variety of apartments, views, exterior spaces and experiences. The wrapper is the element that unifies the different variables. The same concept applies to the bleacher buildings, making them part of the larger whole while preserving their historic integrity.
