Surrounded by a garden, the four proposed volumes sensibly arrange to form a microcosm: a place where architecture and landscape merge as one. The scale, proportion and views between the different elements allow for a changing perception, helping to reduce the sense of the city. The composition invites the visitor to guess the importance and differences between each of the elements. Each of the four forms has their own identity and a different function; yet not one of them can be understood without the other three, or without the garden. The four elements, simple and abstract, are surrounded by a garden that symbolizes the strength and complexity of the world of Andersen. They intend to awaken the imagination of the visitor, inviting a discovery of the unexpected.
