The ideology is based on the route and its different users within a program that demands a certain degree of isolation. The design is inspired by a Paternostarlift. A moving restaurant where the guests move around in small compartments creating different experiences whithin the site and the farm. The intention is to simultaniously strengthen the connection between the sea and the city and enhance the relationship between humans and their consumption of food. Erna D�gg Th. Vestmann - Arkitekt MAA portofolio - examples of work - 5th year project 2 The site is located within the St. James Ditch in Valletta the capital of Malta. Within a fortified city, the chosen site has some very interesting qualities. It�s at the same time bewildering and elegant whilst the fortifications rise 60 m above sea level as you travel through the fairly narrow space. Believing that my site actually exists on a threshold I focused my research and experiments on identifying moments along a specific route. Erna D�gg Th. Vestmann - Arkitekt MAA portofolio - examples of work - 5th year project 3 Investigations of a route and unfolding of a route in the context of my site. These are speculations about the inside and outside of a city, focusing on the fortification as a threshold between the two. The idea of the route ossolating between Inside and Outside. Unfolding of a route on to one axis, focusing on the extensions of bounderies. Erna D�gg Th. Vestmann - Arkitekt MAA portofolio - examples of work - 5th year project restaurant restaurant 4 The sea is pulled into my sight attempting to blur the bounderies between the city and the sea and creating a "semi" landbased farm, which would be making use of the salt water. The restaurant distributes verticly and creates a connection up to the bastions and the processing fascility works as a connection hub between the other functions. processing market farm- market farm processing Erna D�gg Th.

Vestmann - Arkitekt MAA portofolio - examples of work - 5th year project 6 The speculation was based on the running sushi and seeing if I would be able to translate it to a different scale. The scale of the city. Instead of looking at it as a way of presenting a type of food, the idea is stretched and and looked at as a way of presenting the city. The concept works on a vertical level within the context of the site and takes the role of a connecting element between the lower level and the the garden above. Introducing a steel structure located next to the fortification. A 190 m long rounded rectangle that is built up as a rail system for restaurant units. These "rooms" can carry up to 6 people and travel at the speed of 0,4 km /hour, which means it goes one circle in 30 minutes. Erna D�gg Th.

Vestmann - Arkitekt MAA portofolio - examples of work - 4th year project wood / additions modules / beams 9 Scale Distortion - Sarajevo Art Residency 4th year project The chosen site is next to the oldest orthodox church in the city center and in the project I�m adressing the reverence between the church and the artistic space in my archictural proposal. My reference, the holy space in the church, boxed in by layers of ,,walls", is reversed as the central outdoor area in my project. The outdoor area is a connection space between the 3 indoor spaces. This notion of the wall and the way we precieve it is important in the project. The building wall connects the three indoor spaces and surrounds the outdoor space as the walls wraps around it. The idea is that the user can inhabit the walls aswell as the space it surrounds. The project corresponds to a need for artistic facilities in the city of Sarajevo. It�s a desire to encourage bosnian artists by offering them a creative residency in a motivating location. location / attributes s Erna D�gg Th. Vestmann - Arkitekt MAA portofolio - examples of work - 4th year project appartments flexible workshop 10 A text by Robert Hill talkes about flexibility being the continuation of functionalism, where flexible spaces would be for the creative user and the functional ones for a passive obedient user. Being influenced by his writings I tried to take this with me into the design in different stages. This was adressed from the way you interprate a space, in terms of spatial distribution, to changes in visual connections and light entering the space and to double usage in a space. onion / structure mechanical workshop exhibition space Erna D�gg Th. Vestmann - Arkitekt MAA portofolio - examples of work - 4th year project A state of completion shouldn�t exist in my project, since the art and the inhabitant should complete the building with their installations. The building should look raw, with cast concrete and visible beams which are going to work as rails for the movable walls. 11 Erna D�gg Th.

After years of economic growth the planlindargata ning of urban parts in Reykjav�k has created areas of litle density and in many cases low quality buildings. final project This project is about categorizing this problem with the objective to analyze the residue area which has been a result of this sort of planning strategies. By splitting all existing green areas into five categoriz I can determine the amount of m2 per person of simply residue area which I mean could be used as a building plots instead of extending the cities outline even more. The research showed over 100m2 per person of green "residue" space. green program Green Mapping 2,0 % nature conservation areas 2,0 % nature conservation areas 16,7 % leisure & nature parks leisure & nature parks 12,8 % sport facilites sport facilities 6,9 % traffic greens 6,9 % traffic greens 61,7 % residue area residue area after looking at corbusiers ideas about urbanism i started wondering about how much green areas we had in the greater metropolitan area. in connection to the planning of the urban parts of reykjav�k, sprawling has created more land and less density.

The steam rising from the city is actually evoporating from the 100% natural traffic system. Cars are forbidden within the city limits and the citizens simply swim to their destinations in geothermal swimming lanes, some of which provide stream for faster swimming. Bicycling and visualize a health city in reykjav�k in a completely unrealistic way, was a good starting point to begin to think about the urban to walking context we in. that way transportations means in Reykjavik in a Utopian way it made me see pro�s and con�s in the urban are also means of getting between places so there liveBy looking at it�s easy to see the pro�s and con�s and it made me realize many things about our central area. i thought about connections between neighbourhood connections between neighbourhoods and looking at the flow of people is no surprise to learn that the population of Reyk- context in a different manner.

With the goal to build a dome through the use of reciprocal truss frame structures as a tectonic system. My group focused specificly on the joint design.
