From the architect. The idea:
Arcgency is a Copenhagen office dedicated to Resource Conscious Architecture. Based on knowledge gained from research and projects on how to assemble and disassemble buildings Arcgency developed an architectural conceptthat is easily moveable while still offering the qualities of permanent buildings. More thanthat, it is an experiment in pre-fab architecture that challenges universal waste issues and traditional building techniques; How do we minimize energy usage while adapting to the rough and dynamic Scandinavian climate? How do we implement a high level of flexibility and functionality in the creation of ideal workspaces for creative entrepreneurs? How do we create a sustainable design that prioritizes diverse and interesting spaces with great visual quality and daylight conditions? How do we make a building move?
