Mindet 6 is an old industrial building for grain storage which were challeging the structuring of the building as a Mediahouse for DR. Since the harbor of Aarhus is going through a regeneration, it has not jet created its own part of the citystructure. The main focus at the site has been the large scale industry and having in mind that the city expands and demands public functions and spaces. The three elevations shows the transformationproposal for the building.

Concept development: Image of intent

Diagramatic concept models Development and investigations of placing different functions of the DR. The intention was to define different opportunities of positioning and systematic graduation of public, semi-private and the private within the institution. There have been investigating in different solutions of how to create transitions or borders between the different spaces. Some of them are directly connected and some are divided by a strict circulation system.

This has been a personal way to develop the concept and must be seen as an abstract way of working. This image is a workingmethod realated to the work with the roomprogram. It shows the funktions which are connected to the core of the building. The core has in the process evolved from being private for the institution to become a public square. This collage opens up for further investigation – always exploring the existing space.

Workshop 6 semester

Constructing Architecture In three weeks of May 2016, i have been a part of building a boathouse at Aarhus School of Architecture as part of the workshop run by Stefano Ciurlo Walker. The boathouse utilises the same standard materials commonly used in Aarhus harbour for these kind of structures: cement and steel for the reinforced concrete footings, 45 x 95 mm softwood studs for the pinned timber frame, and PVC woven tarpaulin tensioned with 8mm black rope. The structure has been installed in Studsgade courtyard, then disassembled and reassembled in Aarhus wood boat harbour to be utilised by the local boating community.

Archive The archive was made to cover the registrations and analyses made on a studytrip to Paris. The archive is removable, for creating different “scenes” occour in different situations or backgrounds. The archives intention is to create new insights of the material in different contexts. The archive is inspired on the ond way of making special effects for movies. The old techniqe is in french called Mise-en-scene and is translated into “staging”.

Threshold For this project i have been investigating different anchoring ground situations and used them as a way of experimenting with the threshold situation at The Institut du Monde Arabe, in Paris, by Jean Nouvel. The sound situation at the plaza in front of the building became interesting as an other typology to work with. It was a realization that the perception of the building could change along with the 4 different experiments of the threshold. The Institut du Monde Arabe, in Paris has a breathing facasde as the mechanisms behind the glass regulates the amount of sun entering the building. The plaza in front of the building is a mirroring of the gridsystem of the mechanisms. The following 4 experiments has been an exploration of this gridsystem as a way of creating a threshold which challenged the transition of outside to inside.

Capturing Daylight In 4 weeks of December 2015, I have been investigating the qualities of Nordic light at Aarhus School of Architecture as part of a workshop called “Capturing Daylight�, run by Stefano Ciurlo Walker. The carefull study of a reletively small room at Aarhus School of Architecture, a seminar room on the ground floor of Studsgade. The room has windows on two sides, facing a courtyard to the South East and a narrow passage on the North West. We have built a 1:15 model of the room, meticulously observing the slight differences in the window construction, alignment and positioning on the two sides of the space. The two images produced captured the uniformity of how daylight enters through these openings, bouncing of the slightly reflective surfaces of the window reveals towards the ceiling.

In this project themed “openings�, i have been investigating the facade of a prefabricated concrete facade. The analysed building is the Yardmasters building built by McBride, Charles and Ryan in Melbourne, Australia in 2009. For the project i have been investigating three types of typologies of lightsituations for three different bays of the pre.fab. concrete facade. The typical space of the Yardmasters Building, is the working office space where the function of that enviroment needs to fit the typology. The typology of filtrating light will create a working space with a light condition that axonometric of typical bay does not disturb.

Internship at B ureau Detours In 4 weeks of June 2016 i have been doing an internship at Bureau Detours, a part of Institut for(X), at Godsbanen in Aarhus. I have been a part of a projectdeveloping group which have been working on creating a cooperation between the new School of Architecture and the already existing Institut for (X). The project was named Gunschool and figurates as a platform for students who are working in a scale 1:1 and has a need for more space in which Godsbanen offers. For the Gunschool project, i was mainly producing communication material; mappings, plans, sections and visualizations of “grow architecture� that Godsbanen allows to happen. In that context there was exercised 3D scans of the A-Huset at Godsbanen. Other actors at Godsbanen and the municipality of Aarhus was also informed about the project.
