Olympic Award for Harboøre

Activity Landscape Harboøre has been honoured with an Olympic award! On 7th November, the official presentation ceremony for the 2017 IOC IPC IAKS international architecture prizes took place in Cologne, and our Activity Landscape was awarded with a Bronze Award.

The jury verdict reads:
‘Harboøre recreation centre is located in a small town in Denmark. The design aims to provide sports and cultural opportunities to the neighbourhood. All ages are invited to share the facility. The shelter structure uniting the building and the landscape merges outdoor and indoor activities which include skating, bicycling, climbing, running, etc. The activity landscape can also be used for concerts or fish markets. This project is a good example of sports and culture infrastructure for a local community with low cost to build and maintain and without any energy consumption. Free admission permits complete accessibility.’

We are super proud that a low-cost sports hall in the Danish countryside can achieve international recognition!
The project was made in collaboration with AI and Lokale & Anlægsfonden.
