Orestad Gymnasium, Denmark

This space is very Representative of the Scandinavian architecture, which the design presides from. Inside the buildings, in the lobby space, there are platforms that hover over the walkways. I really like this touch, its very communal, and I feel like the place has a strong sense of community. The windows have different colors on them and they rotate around during the day to direct the sunlight into the building showing the time. Not only does the sunlight that flows through create time, but the colors change during the season. This internal space is a good example of how architecture, notably the interior space, connects the external world to the internal world.
