Solar-Powered School In Denmark Lets Kids Grow Their Own Food

By Brian Spaen

Looking back at our childhoods, we’ve probably learned and remembered more from hands-on experiences than we did studying textbooks. A secondary school in Denmark hopes to be more engaging with students with a solar-powered building that teaches them how to grow and cook food in the rooftop garden. Not only will it boost an education, but it will also provide a number of energy-saving features.

Architecture form C.F. Møller has been tasked with creating the New Islands Brygge School in Copenhagen. Boasting a size of 105,690 square feet, this new school allows for up to 784 students with additional rooms for the staff and various activities. An additional 43,000 square feet around the building will feature an outdoor area with more gardens.
