|THE GEOCENTER MØNS KLINT
international design competition
|The project competition for a new experience centre at Møns Klint has now been organised.
The competition is about making proposals for a 3000 m2 nature based geology and experience centre, situated in the magnificent scenery at the Store Klint of Møns Klint.
Every year about 250,000 visitors guest the 130-metre-high chalk cliffs by the Baltic Sea at the eastside of Møn. Here, during the next 3-4 years, it is the intention to create a centre to support and supplement the visitor's spontaneous experience of the majestic nature of the Cliff.
The centre is to:
* tell the story of the creation of Denmark
* increase the understanding of the overall relations of nature
* strengthen the visitor's own discovery of the landscape of Møns Klint
* protect nature by increasing the general understanding of nature
The competition is organised by the steering committee of GeoCenter Møns Klint, which consist of Skov- & Naturstyrelsen, Møn Municipality, Storstrøm County, Danmarks Naturfredningsforening, Friluftsrådet, Turisme region syd and Team Møn. Danske Arkitekters Landsforbund (the Danish architects' organisation) participate in the organisation of the competition.
The competition is open to architects and engineers in Denmark, other EU countries as well as countries outside the EU. The prize amount is DKK 600,000.
The winner of the competition is given the subsequent projecting task.
The deadline for entries is February 15th 2002.
