The predominant material is of course yellow brick which is very common across Denmark. The style is clean and contemporary, perhaps the massing is slightly overpowering at times, but there are some pleasant textures and details amongst the stark forms.

The university was founded in Aarhus, Denmark, in 1928 and comprises five faculties in Arts, Natural Sciences, Technical Sciences, Health, and Business and Social Sciences and has a total of twenty-seven departments. It is home to over thirty internationally recognised research centres, including fifteen Centres of Excellence funded by the Danish National Research Foundation.

The Main Building was finished in 1946 and still stands out from the rest of the University campus as somewhat different in its architectural design.

In comparison with the original 4,190m2 floor space of the first buildings, Aarhus University now holds a floor space of 246,000m2 in the University Park alone. A series of buildings outside the main campus adds an additional floor space of 59,000m2.

Moesgård Museum Århus
In 2011, Moesgård Museum, which was already responsible for the Viking Museum in Aarhus, merged with Odder Museum – and thus Moesgård Museum is now a museum located at three sites. This was always a magic place. The museum was housed in the red brick barn buildings of what used to be Moesgård Mansion.
