    • Art is a Great Part of Frederiksbjerg School

      At the new build Frederiksbjerg School in Aarhus Denmark, art has been integrated in the design. The students can look, touch and interact with the custom-made art pieces.

    • The artistic decorations at Frederiksbjerg School are just as diverse as the school. Sculptures, paintings, and art installations have been integrated into the building design and placed around the school.

      Rose Eken, the Danish artist who has created most of the art pieces at the school, explains her thoughts about her creations:

      “The task was to create both big extensive creations and small almost invisible pieces. I especially loved the idea about creating pieces that you might not notice at first sight.”She has created small goggle-boxes in the walls that you can look through and into a miniature parallel world. The miniature worlds show everyday situations, a birthday party and a motor-cycle repair shop.

It has been important to me that the children can relate to the situations and objects that the pieces present,” Rosen Eken states.

E.g. one of the sculptures are an abandoned school bag. The idea is that the art is hard to separate from the reality.Besides the boxes, Rosen Eken has created some big wall paintings and bronze sculptures, which pictures everyday furniture and elements.

To make sure that the art is integrated in the design, Henning Larsen Architects factor in the decorations as early in the design process as possible.
