Life Campus was developed to give younger Danish students intense engagement with a assortment of finding out activities in STEM—science, technological know-how, engineering, and arithmetic. Unquestionably, local industry work and laboratory experiments are fundamental to scientific exploration, but Everyday living Campus also has world-leading assets for supplying college students unforgettable understanding adventures in 360-degree immersive environments made by slicing-edge electronic technologies. The facility’s considerable AV devices and subtle regulate networks, made and installed by the consulting and integration organization Stouenborg, contain a total of additional than sixty Meyer Audio self-run loudspeakers.
Situated in Lyngby, adjacent to the Specialized University of Denmark, Life Campus is operated by the non-profit Existence Foundation and was established with the mission of inspiring Danish school kids to become completely engaged in their formative yrs with inquiry-primarily based science schooling. The new 5,400-square-meter facility, opened in late 2021 by HRH Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark, is situated in an expansive natural region.

“The Life Basis is an bold venture with the function of strengthening younger students’ know-how of—and fascination with—the purely natural sciences,” mentioned Mogens Laursen Hastrup, head of AV functions for the campus. “Therefore, we desired to have only the best technical factors in our education and learning heart. And that consists of outstanding seem systems which pay for incredible prospects for auditory guidance of teaching.”
For significant group studying experiences, Existence Campus presents the progressive Kolossalen (“Colossal Hall”), a huge open up area that can be divided into two separate rooms. All the walls can provide as projection screens applying 11 Panasonic projectors, and to regulate the acoustics the wall surfaces hire a perforated metal substance that will help maintain the reverb time to an intelligibility-pleasant .8 seconds.
One aspect of the area, with a tiered floor, is termed “Auditorium 180.” Right here, seem and visuals are oriented to one facet with Meyer Sound’s CAL 96 column array loudspeakers—concealed at the rear of the perforated wall/monitor surface—using innovative beam-steering technological know-how with beam-splitting functionality to exactly tailor protection to the tiered seating regions.

The other 50 percent of the place, when divided and enclosed, is referred to as “Auditorium 360.” From an audio facet, the most hanging feature here is the dynamic spatial audio enabled by Meyer Sound’s impressive however easy-to-grasp Spacemap Go spatial sound design and style and mixing instrument. Using an intuitive iPad interface, Spacemap Go makes it possible for the person to freely go seems all over and by way of the area, directing them to the 26 full-vary loudspeakers and four subwoofers, both singly or in loudspeaker groups.
“When designing this space, we consulted with workgroups of lecturers and tech personnel,” observed Anders Jørgensen, project supervisor for Stouenborg. “They required to have 360-degree projection, and whilst Spacemap Go had not still been launched, I understood it was coming. I encouraged we help the projection with dynamic spatial audio. The notion was recognized by the team, and fortunately Spacemap Go arrived in time.”
The Auditorium 360 technique deploys 12 HMS-10 encompass loudspeakers close to the partitions, with four additional in the ceiling along with 10 UP-4trim compact loudspeakers. 4 MM-10XP miniature subwoofers supply deep minimal frequencies.

A crucial aspect in building the strategy function, in accordance to Jørgensen, was the flat-profile of the HMS-10. “The speakers are all hidden powering the perforated walls, and the HMS-10s had been the only ones with the ability to undertaking as a result of the partitions and still suit in the place authorized.”
The room’s capabilities have opened new horizons for studying, in accordance to Mogens Laursen Hastrup. “The multiroom allows us to present scientific phenomena—such as severe temperature, atomic structure, or lunar landscapes—in entirely new strategies to get the pupils’ focus and stimulate their interest. The desire is that, when they go away Life Campus at the finish of the day, they consider science is great and they want to study extra.”
Other Meyer Sound systems are set up throughout the campus, with Ashby-8C ceiling loudspeakers in the three laboratory school rooms (8 in each individual), in the massive assembly area (4), and in the foyer (16). In the personal canteen, full-array songs reproduction is equipped by two MM-4XP miniature self-powered loudspeakers augmented by an MM-10ACX subwoofer.

“Our AV programs are critical to the assist of teaching at Daily life Campus,” concluded Hastrup. “The projectors and sound programs are the initial to be turned on in the morning and the last to be shut down at the conclusion of the working day.”
Existence Campus was made by Vilhelm Lauritzen Architects. The architecture is inspired by DNA strings, Fibonacci sequences, and other scientific and mathematical patterns. The façade characteristics 96 good oak columns. Key funding for the Lifestyle Basis is supplied by the Novo Nordisk Foundation. At Integrated Systems Europe 2022, Everyday living Campus received an Inavation Award in the “Education” classification.
