Daily life Campus was produced to give youthful Danish students intensive engagement with a selection of finding out encounters in STEM—science, know-how, engineering, and arithmetic. Undoubtedly, nearby industry do the job and laboratory experiments are essential to scientific exploration, but Lifestyle Campus also has entire world-foremost methods for offering pupils unforgettable discovering adventures in 360-diploma immersive environments produced by slicing-edge digital technologies. The facility’s comprehensive AV methods and sophisticated control networks, made and mounted by the consulting and integration firm Stouenborg, include things like a overall of additional than sixty Meyer Audio self-powered loudspeakers.
Located in Lyngby, adjacent to the Technical University of Denmark, Existence Campus is operated by the non-gain Lifestyle Basis and was started with the mission of inspiring Danish university youngsters to grow to be fully engaged in their formative many years with inquiry-primarily based science education and learning. The new 5,400-sq.-meter facility, opened in late 2021 by HRH Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark, is positioned in an expansive natural place.

“The Lifetime Foundation is an formidable venture with the intent of strengthening younger students’ expertise of—and fascination with—the pure sciences,” reported Mogens Laursen Hastrup, head of AV operations for the campus. “Therefore, we wished to have only the very best technical aspects in our education and learning heart. And that consists of remarkable seem devices which find the money for extraordinary opportunities for auditory assistance of educating.”
For huge group discovering experiences, Life Campus gives the innovative Kolossalen (“Colossal Hall”), a massive open up house that can be divided into two separate rooms. All the partitions can provide as projection screens utilizing 11 Panasonic projectors, and to management the acoustics the wall surfaces utilize a perforated metal product that aids hold the reverb time to an intelligibility-pleasant .8 seconds.
A single aspect of the area, with a tiered floor, is termed “Auditorium 180.” Below, seem and visuals are oriented to 1 aspect with Meyer Sound’s CAL 96 column array loudspeakers—concealed guiding the perforated wall/monitor surface—using innovative beam steering technological know-how with beam-splitting capacity to exactly tailor coverage to the tiered seating spots.

The other half of the place, when divided and enclosed, is referred to as “Auditorium 360.” From an audio component, the most placing function in this article is the dynamic spatial audio enabled by Meyer Sound’s potent yet straightforward-to-grasp Spacemap Go spatial sound design and style and mixing tool. Utilizing an intuitive iPad interface, Spacemap Go enables the consumer to freely transfer sounds close to and as a result of the space, directing them to the 26 whole-selection loudspeakers and 4 subwoofers, both singly or in loudspeaker groups.
“When creating this place, we consulted with workgroups of academics and tech personnel,” pointed out Anders Jørgensen, task manager for Stouenborg. “They preferred to have 360-degree projection, and while Spacemap Go had not however been launched, I realized it was coming. I advisable we guidance the projection with dynamic spatial sound. The notion was approved by the team, and luckily Spacemap Go arrived in time.”
The Auditorium 360 procedure deploys 12 HMS-10 surround loudspeakers around the partitions, with 4 extra in the ceiling alongside with 10 UP-4trim compact loudspeakers. Four MM-10XP miniature subwoofers source deep lower frequencies.

A vital ingredient in producing the thought get the job done, according to Jørgensen, was the flat-profile of the HMS-10. “The speakers are all concealed guiding the perforated partitions, and the HMS-10s have been the only types with the electric power to challenge as a result of the partitions and still fit in the house permitted.”
The room’s capabilities have opened new horizons for understanding, according to Mogens Laursen Hastrup. “The multi-place permits us to present scientific phenomena—such as extraordinary climate, atomic structure, or lunar landscapes—in wholly new methods to get the pupils’ consideration and stimulate their desire. The aspiration is that, when they go away Life Campus at the finish of the day, they imagine science is awesome and they want to learn extra.”
Other Meyer Sound methods are mounted all over the campus, with Ashby-8C ceiling loudspeakers in the a few laboratory lecture rooms (8 in each and every), in the substantial conference space (4), and in the lobby (16). In the personal canteen, entire-selection tunes reproduction is supplied by two MM-4XP miniature self-run loudspeakers augmented by an MM-10ACX subwoofer.

“Our AV units are crucial to the assistance of educating at Everyday living Campus,” concluded Hastrup. “The projectors and seem techniques are the first to be turned on in the morning and the last to be shut down at the conclude of the working day.”
Existence Campus was created by Vilhelm Lauritzen Architects. The architecture is motivated by DNA strings, Fibonacci sequences, and other scientific and mathematical styles. The façade features 96 sound oak columns. Major funding for the Life Basis is supplied by the Novo Nordisk Foundation. At Built-in Programs Europe 2022, Lifestyle Campus gained an Inavation Award in the “Education” category.
