The project is made in joint effort with SLA landscape architects, Søren Jensen engineers, Imitio, Winnie Ricken, Max Fordham and Ducks Scèno. Earlier MVRDV and ADEPT have won the competition for the Rødovre Sky Village, currently in development. Jury statement: "The proposal has convinced the jury through its strong conceptual approach as 'an experimentarium for movement' and its spatial abundance. It proposes new sensuous experiences that challenge our conventional notion of experimenting with body and movement. A realization of this proposal will provide not only the house but also the place a unique identity." The other invited teams in the competition were: 3XN, Dorte Mandrup Arkitekter, Henning Larsen Architects, BIG, Svendborg Architects and Junya Ishigami.
