Studio Leader Biography Tina-Henriette Kristiansen is a Danish architect and leader of 3 design units at Lunds University. She received her master degree from AARCH, Aarhus, Denmark in 1998. Her Ph.D. studies and research areas are on Augmented Reality and Extreme Environments and she has on several occasions been a visiting researcher and guest professor at NASA Johnson Space Center, USA and many international schools among Sasakawa International
Center for Space Architecture, Houston University, ETH Zurich, KISD Cologne, Architectural Association London, ESA European Space Agency, Rice University, Royal Academy of fine arts, Copenhagen. Julia Koerner is an Austrian architect, based in London. She has received her master degree in architecture with distinction in Greg Lynn’s studio at the University of Applied Arts Vienna, 2009. Since 2007 she has been working for Ross Lovegrove Studio in London. Julia has taught at the University of Applied Arts Vienna, the Architectural Association London as well since 2010 as guest professor at the Department of Theoretical and Applied Aesthetics, School of Architecture, Lunds University. Adam Vukmanov is a London based architect, researcher and lecturer. He has received his master degree in architecture with honours in Greg Lynn’s master class at University of Applied Arts Vienna, in June 2009. Until recently, Adam has been working as Project Architect at Acme and before that at Span-arch in Vienna where he was involved in construction and advanced fabrication of Austrian EXPO pavilion in Shanghai 2010. He has taught at University of Applied
Arts, Vienna, Architectural Association’s Visiting School in Paris and is currently a guest lecturer at the School of Architecture, Lunds University. 2. School Lund University has long and vibrant history covering almost 350 years of teaching. It has evolved from just a few hundred students and professors being paid with meat and grain into its present form, with around 47.000 students and a position ranked in the world’s top 100 universities in recent years. Lund University is the highest placed comprehensive university in Scandinavia (Times Higher Education 2011/2012 rankings). The Department of Theoretical and Applied Aesthetics, School of Architecture has around 600 students is now attending our 5 year professional program leading to a Master in Architecture. Architectural Mutations by Tina-Henriette Kristiansen is one of four current Bachelor programs. 3. Studio Description CIPHER SISTEMS are coded and encrypted structures we see in nature as a phenomenon of scale. Their fractal appearance in certain morphologies, diversifying in size, is an intriguing aspect for morphogenetic
design. The reappearing relationship of macro and micro patterns found in different states of physicality in a variety of environments, is leading to an understanding about emergence and the connectivity between systems. Thus, the MUTATING ARCHITECTURE studio analyses, evaluates and decrypts reoccurring natural patterns and explores possibilities of their application on visionary scenarios in futuristic city context. We develop and reproduce 3-Dimensional systems of selected natural phenomenons and generate an iteration of mutations with both topological and parametric modelling. Generated systems are applied in horizontal and vertical formations in the outcome of urban matrix and architectural body to study the variations, adaptation, connectivities, scale, repetitions and densification strategies for Maribor 2112Ai [Architectural intelligence] 100YC.
