Maritime Youth House, Copenhagen Denmark

Julien De Smedt (JDS) and Bjarke Ingels (BIG) designed the Det Maritime Ungdomshus in Copenhagen, completed in 2004. Three challenges faced this project: polluted topsoil, facilities for a sailing club, and facilities for a youth center. The youth programs are simply thrown atop the sailing facilities with a curvy wooden deck that gives plenty of play space. Boats and sailing equipment fits finely underneath. This conveniently also covers up the polluted topsoil, avoiding the cost of a cleanup.
