Experimentarium: The Construction work has Begun!



The construction of the future Experimentarium – The Science Centre of Denmark – has begun.
Currently, the construction site at Tuborg Nord looks quite dramatic: The first phase of extending the science centre involves the demolition of a 30 meter section of the eastern facade of the ekisting building.

This has been necessary in order to consolidate the constructive base for a new upper addition of three floors, including a 6000 Sq.m exterior exhibition area, to the existing building. Most of the demolished façade will be reconstructed.

During the period of construction The Experimentarium exhibition has been moved to Papirøen (The Paper island).

Elgaard Architecture are performing the role as employers agent on the project with a total budget of 360 million D.kr. The Project management is overseen by CEBRA Architects.
