This year’s AZ Awards of Merit in the category ‘Architecture over 1,000 m2’ has been granted to five bold and inspiring large-scale projects from all over the world. Frederiksbjerg School is one of them.
With this award, the school is honored for its emphasis on movement as a catalyst for learning.
“Travelling from one floor to the next, students can take the stairs or ascend via the adjacent climbing wall, making the school every bit as dynamic as the students who run, jump and swing through its interiors,” the jury’s description reads.
Frederiksbjerg School opened in August 2016. Since then, students from six to 16 years old have been able to learn and play both indoor and outdoor at the school. The school is designed so the students get the ideal surroundings for learning through movement.
The AZ Awards is an initiative of Azure, a Canadian award-winning magazine with a focus on contemporary architecture and design. Frederiksbjerg School has previously been awarded School Building of the Year 2016 and Building of the Year 2016 and also earned a nomination for a Danish Design Award.
