KuBe House of Culture and Movement, Frederiksberg, Denmark

丹麥腓特烈斯貝 酷貝文化與運動之家


The 3,200 m² Ku.Be House of Culture in Movement was designed for the municipality of Frederiksberg as a focal point for both the immediate community and also the wider area of Copenhagen; one that the people themselves could take ownership of and that would evolve its programme based on the specific wants and needs of its users. The project is a new typology, developed out of the response to a brief that solely asked for a building that would bring people together and improve the quality of life. In reply MVRDV and ADEPT answered with one that blends theatre, sport and learning into a space where body and mind are activated to promote a more healthy life for everyone, regardless of age, ability or interest; creating links between people that wouldn't otherwise connect with each other. The six primary volumes which make up Ku.Be, each with their own programme, are clad in a unique colour and material, clearly defining them within the building; from outside these shapes are hinted at in the fragmented tile façade. ''We designed Ku.Be to encourage the unexpected,'' explains MVRDV co-founder Jacob van Rijs. ''Larger volumes are suited to hold performances or public meetings, smaller ones can be for exhibitions or debates. The fast-pace rooms are perfect for dance, or parkour; and zen rooms give you the contrast of yoga or meditation. It's between these volumes where the real fun will happen though; spaces where we hint at a use, but which will become entirely user-defined.'' The route through the building focuses on developing and encouraging alternate forms of movement. The Labyrinth gets people on their hands and knees climbing through a three dimensional network of cubes from the second to third floors; or alternatively they could take the Mousetrap, a vertical maze. A net which spans several floors throughout the building, lets users climb up from floor to floor – suspended over the voids – and slides and fireman poles offer a fast way to get back down. ''In Ku.Be we tried to turn your average experience of a building on its head,'' tells ADEPT co-founder Martin Krogh. ''What would otherwise be a simple, mindless journey through the building turns into an exploration and discovery of movement. Here it's you that defines the route, however you want: climbing, sliding, crawling … jumping.'' To cater for all abilities and ages, both easier and more standard ways of moving around are provided but even then a visual connection is maintained throughout Ku.Be. The urban gardens outside form the connection between Ku.Be and the urban realm, playing an important role in expressing the eight volumes and the activities happening inside. The diverse landscape – a system of microclimates with changing sounds, lights and scents which blends seamlessly into a hill with integrated slides – reaches out into the gardens and ends in an amphitheatre outside. By becoming an extension of the urban landscape of Frederiksberg and integrating the community to such an extent, the House of Culture and Movement looks to become an incubator for further development within the neighbourhood.


佔地 3,200 平方公尺的「酷貝文化與運動之家」(Ku.Be House of Culture in Movement)是專為丹麥的腓特烈斯貝市(Frederiksberg)設計,成為鄰近社區與哥本哈根地區的醒目建築。民眾可盡情使用這棟建築,而它也會根據使用者的特定需求來調整設施。本案是新型態的設計嚐試,專注於如何打造可以聚集民眾並提升生活品質的建築。為了因應這項指示,鹿特丹 MVRDV 與哥本哈根 ADRPT 規劃了這棟特殊建築,融合劇院戲場、體育設施與學習空間。無論男女老幼、能力高低或興趣愛好,任何人皆可來此促進身心健康,同時發展人際關係。「酷貝」由六個主要體量組成,每個體量都有專屬設施並以獨特色澤和建材覆面,在建築內區分明顯。建築外部立面有破碎分離的玻璃窗,隱約透露室內設施。 MVRDV 共同創辦人雅各布.梵.瑞傑斯(Jacob van Rijs)指出:「我們設計『酷貝』,是為了激發意想不到的火花。較大的體量適合舉辦表演或公眾會議,較小的體量可用來舉辦展覽或辯論會。快節奏風格的空間適合於跳舞或跑酷(Parkour),冥想室則可讓人做瑜珈或打坐沉思。這些量體交互連結,民眾可從中發掘真正的樂趣。我們並未明確定義這些空間的功能,反而鼓勵使用者自由運用。」本建築的路徑著重於發展並鼓勵各種形式的運動。民眾進入迷宮之後要手腳並用,方能攀爬立方體,從二樓抵達三樓;他們也可攀爬垂直迷宮「捕鼠器」(Mousetrap)。另有一張貫穿數個樓層的網子,民眾爬進網子後會虛懸於半空,在樓層之間穿梭攀爬;此外,人們也可利用滑梯或消防員滑桿來快速滑回底層。ADEPT共同創辦人馬丁.克羅(Martin Krogh)說道:「我們試圖顛覆人們對建築的體驗。將原本簡單、無需動腦的活動轉化為充滿動感的探索之旅。人們可以在此決定自己的探索路徑:攀爬、滑行、匍匐爬行或跳躍。」為了滿足各種年齡層與不同能力民眾的需求,本建築同時提供簡易與標準的移動方式;此外,「酷貝」的整體空間甚至都保持視覺上的連結。連接「酷貝」與市容的各個花園可顯露八個體量與室內活動。各種地貌(亦即聲音、光線與氣味不斷變化的微氣候體系,彼此交融於有斜坡的山丘)一直延伸到花園,最終止於戶外的圓形劇場。「酷貝文化與運動之家」是腓特烈斯貝市容的延伸,同時密切整合社區活動,未來可望促進鄰近地區的發展。
