Lightweight GRC with reference to brutalist concrete architecture
The Maersk Tower is an extension of Panum, the University of Copenhagen's Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, and houses 42,700 sqm of research and teaching facilities.
The facade consists of storey-height copper-covered shutters, that function as moveable sun screens. They give the facade a strong relief and therefore a sense of fineness and verticality.
The horizontal beams are made of GRC by BB fiberbeton. The dark gray color refers to the brutalist concrete architecture of the neighboring existing faculty building from the 70s.
