PULSEN is the new sustainable community center in Balling. The project is the result of an open architecture competition in 2011 won by LETH & GORI in collaboration with Elkiær + Ebbeskov.  The new centre combines programmes within healthcare, culture, sports, and education organized as a small city with buildings, plazas, streets, and alleys. In addition to the building the project also includes masterplanning of the surrounding landscape with urban spaces, parking, football fields, tennis court and a new running path.

The open competition that was organized by The Danish Foundation for Sports and Culture Facilities – Lokale og anlægsfonden, had 43 participants.
