Thomas Scheel is in the midst of the construction process of the Niels Bohr Building. The 50,000-square-metre
multidimensional development has cemented his belief that what is essential to a project’s success is the architect’s ability to work within the framework of an outlined proposal to create the flexibility fundamental to a research centre. “What we’ve experienced with this kind of project is that, as the world of science is constantly evolving, new requirements arise during the design process even after the construction has begun. That is something that tests the strength of the structure, which in the end has to provide the frame for a myriad of wishes and requirements.
