How does form react to two different programs? Is it indifferent, dependent, or symbolic? This project is an exploration of form, program and the relationship of public versus private. It is a study of the sacrifice of space: how private is given to the public. The building is part of a grand scheme to revitalize a historic industrial area of Copenhagen to become one of continual activity and culture. As a Carlsberg music & soccer sponsorship center, this building must become more than just a museum, it must be a destination.
The two programs are isolated to two forms: two rectangles overlapping and reacting to each other’s geometries. The programs remain separate and independent until they intersect. The intersection is a rich fusion of angles, spaces and light. The two subjects mix at this intersection and create a high energy environment.
