A Gym on Steroids, Designed by MVRDV and ADEPT

It’s a fitness center but also a theater, a health spa, an exhibition space, a study hall, a place to eat, and a Zen center.

The building’s expected to be completed in 2015, and a commercial structure and a second House of Movement are planned later down the line. These are pretty ambitious plans, of course, and it remains to be seen how much will actually be realized. But if anyone’s going to get it done, it’s Denmark, a place where socializing and exercising (and coed bathing) are practically built into the DNA.
