Ørestad Gymnasium – The School without walls

Orestad College (high school) opened in 2007 to much acclaim. They structure, which hardly resembles a school, is located just south of central Copenhagen and was designed by 3XN.  

Characterized by open spaces, high ceilings, and of course, no walls, the building is supposed to help facilitate communication between students, teachers, as well as interdisciplinary studies. No more chemistry from 9:00-10:00 and geometry from 10:00 – 11:00. We are now living in a time of astronomy, english, and theater from 9:00 – 11:00.
