Århus Rådhus – The Town Hall, Key building in Aarhus : Arne Jacobsen
Aarhus Town Hall
Aarhus City Hall is the city hall of Aarhus, Denmark. The decision to build a new city hall was taken in 1937.

The new building was inaugurated in 1941, designed by architects Arne Jacobsen and Erik Møller. On the first proposal, the plans did not include a tower but due to massive public pressure it was later added to the drawings along with the idea to clad the structure in marble. Hans Wegner was in charge of the furnishing – uniquely designed to fit the building – and parts of the interior design.

ARoS Aarhus Kunstmuseum : schmidt hammer lassen
ARoS Aarhus
As a symbol representing art, the many-coloured halo hovers above the cubical building by schmidt/hammer/lassen architects and gives visual expression to the fact that the architectural concept of the ARoS building derives from Dante’s “Divine Comedy”: At the bottom the nine circles of Hell, the journey up from the Mount of Purgatory and finally, at the top, perfection in Paradise.
