The campus master plan competition was won in 1931 by the collaborative scheme of Danish architects, Kay Fisker, C.F. Møller, and Poul Stegmann with landscape architect C. Th. Sørensen. The design hosts a wide variety of buildings over a large space, but each building is composed of the same yellow brick and roofing tile, giving the whole campus a unified look. Construction commenced in 1932 and has continued into the 21st century. It was one of the first Danish, functionalist, public buildings and has been included in the Ministry of Culture's canon of Danish architecture. C.F. Møller and his company continued alone on the campus after 1942.
