University of Odense SDU

History - frontrunner for modern Danish architecture since 1946 

KHR Architecture was founded in 1946 by Gunnar Krohn and E. Hartvig Rasmussen - hence the three initials KHR, which have stuck ever since. Then as now, the focus is on creating functional and innovative architecture with an unwavering focus on the users and the context of the building.

It all started with the design of the Atlas machine factory, which was strongly inspired by post-war American factory buildings. KHR became a pioneer of new Danish architecture inspired by international trends, but adapted to the local context. The crowning achievement was University of Odense in 1971, whose structural expression and level of detail set new standards for the architecture of the time.
