Over the past months, 37 architecture students from the Institute of Architecture and Technology have been working intensively on a project dealing with the development of the old Maglemølle industrial site at Næstved. Each of them has come up with an idea for how to develop the site – with future jobs and the cultural environment in mind. The projects will now be exhibited in the Energy Centre at Maglemølle.

Head of programme, Frans Drewniak praises the students’ work on this complex task: ”This is not a site with a decisive master plan, and there are many things, which the students have to take account of –  including terrorist protection of the harbour, and the structure and infrastructure of the town. For many years I have worked in the field of environment and sustainable construction, and we have some of the most talented students here. It has resulted in some wonderful projects, and it will be a really, really beautiful exhibition.”

 

“It has been a great pleasure and very inspiring to follow the students’ work on Maglemølle. They have given us a fresh outlook on the site, not to mention the potential of Næstved. In their projects, many of the students have also thought about new jobs, the potential of the buildings and the wonderful cultural environment at Maglemølle. I am really looking forward to hearing them present their projects, and I hope that many residents will visit the exhibition to draw inspiration from the projects and to meet these passionate students.”

The students have been praised for seeing, and exploiting the opportunities offered by the use of the latest technology for used materials and consolidating the development in an industrial site like Maglemølle with its unique architecture.

The projects will now be exhibited in the Energy Centre at Maglemølle.
