C.F. Møller, Maersk Tower research center in Copenhagen (Denmark)

 
The Maersk Tower, a research and teaching center associated with the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences of the University of Copenhagen, rises as a new landmark in the urban profile of the city. The project conceals a transparent glass facade behind a structure of story-height copper-covered movable shutters that protect the tower’s interior from heat and direct sunlight while allowing daylight to filter through. The shutters open and close automatically, depending on weather conditions, ensuring a comfortable indoor climate aside from giving the facade a deep relief effect. The open and welcoming base at street level – which accommodates the shared and public facilities and is connected to the surrounding neighborhoods –, along with this sense of depth, manages to break up the monumental effect common to a large-scale building, and makes it permeable to the green landscape surrounding it.
