Copenhagen Business School




With 4,000 students attending classes in this building, the main entrance is a broad passage way leading directly into the central hub and the 175 m long three-storey arcade connecting the building longitudinally. Adjoining the central hub are the large common facilities; a two-storey semicircular canteen surrounds a large auditorium near the hub, above which lies the semicircular library.

The arcade bends slightly at the hub, and octagonal open areas are located in each end of the arcade. Two rectangular areas decorated with 1,200 small mirrors on the walls and detached stairs, which lead up to the first floor, cut through the mall.

Along the arcade on the ground floor and on the first floor ordinary classrooms, language laboratorie and IT -equipped rooms are located. The second floor comprises 150 small rooms used for research, administration and student counselling.
