Free-running Gammel Hellerup Gymnasium by Kaspar Astrup Schroder from BIG on Vimeo.

To celebrate the completion of the second phase of his firm's renovation of his alma mater, Gammel Hellerup High School, Bjarke Ingels commissioned a music video featuring a free runner exploring the new facilities. While we hoped the starchitect would go for a more moody, Breakfast Club type vignette, the fast-paced video seems fitting considering the curved exteriors and flowing design of the 1,400-square-meter (~15,000-square-feet) sports and arts expansion. Complete with an angled green roof that doubles as bleachers for the football fields and a concrete-and-wood interior, it's a much more stylish setting for secondary education than many of us experienced. Imagine the video BIG will make if the full Googleplex is ever realized.
