Assignment for Søren Jensen Engineers to document the construction in 2011 and completion in 2012 of Godsbanen / The Freight Yard, Aarhus, Denmark by 3XN Architects & Søren Jensen. The building is a centre for cultural production in Aarhus containing workshops, studios, theatre stages, auditoriums and a restaurant. The buildings used to host one of Denmark’s largest train freight yards and the new roof is open access allowing the visitors to walk over the building and get a panoramic view of the city including Your Rainbow Panorama and the Hothouse at the botanical gardens.

These images show the construction, as of June 2011, for a new cultural hub for scenography, visual arts and literature named Godsbanen /The Freight Yard Project that is being built within a historical framework in Denmark’s second largest city, Aarhus. The new cultural center is meant to be an inspiring setting that stimulates production of the arts and facilitates the interaction amongst the various artistic metiers, business and education.
The project design by Architects 3XN in collaboration with Søren Jensen Engineers is comprised of the renovation of the existing freight halls along with a new building with rooms and large scale auditoria. The roof of the building will appear as an extension of the green space – and will take the form of a green ‘carpet’ over the new building. The project is expected to be completed in 2012.
These photos were commissioned by Søren Jensen, the engineering firm of the project.
