Danfoss Universe, is a science park in Denmark, embedded int he agricultural landscape. It’s located next to the founder’s home and the Danfoss HQ. The new buildings are designed by J. MAYER H. Architects and opened in 2005. The masterplan for Danfoss Universe Phase 2 includes an exhibition building (Curiosity.Center) and a restaurant (Food.Factory) which extends the summer based outdoor park into the winter months by enclosing spaces for exhibitions and scientific experiments.
The buildings with their metallic facedes and tar roofs, are rising up from the ground, providing spaces which articulate the fusion of outdoor landscape and indoor exhibition. This active ground modulates according to program and location in the park. The endpoints of the buildings blur the line between building and park by offering inside-out spaces as display areas and projection surfaces related to the temporary exhibitions inside.
