Konventum is a modern conference, seminar and education centre. And the building encompasses an exciting history of Danish design, art, architecture, the spirit of the times and personal development. When in the 1950s the trade union movement was working with the idea of a new workers’ education centre, The Workers’ Educational Association and the Danish Federation of Trade Unions arranged an architectural competition in 1958. The result was the education centre, LOskolen, which was built from 1966-69. The education centre existed 1969 – 2008 and was designed and built to encompass completely new teaching methods focussing on inquisitive and creative people, who did not want to be limited by a single classroom and on which the building’s manifold architecture has left its indelible mark. The building is refurbished with beautiful, modern facilities and has still got the unique historic framework which inspires and stimulates the senses in all kinds of ways. In 2010 the Konventum was enhanced with 34
the the title of Denmark’s most recently built listed building on account of its significant cultural and historical value and unique architecture. Conferences, meetings, courses and education continue to be the focal point at Konventum where opportunities for interdisciplinary interaction and the unique surroundings create a very special framework for professional and personal development, which is decisive in conjunction with knowledge sharing, education and development. Quality, aesthetics, originality and diversity are our values and focal points. The values are expressed through Konventum’s architecture, art, facilities and the education courses on offer – and are also the demands we will continue to make on ourselves in the further development of Konventum. Development is not over at Konventum. And it never will be either. Because time does not stand still here.
