The black box The chosen room was the car cabin in a citroen xantia that me and my family drove on vacation in my childhood. The first drawing was drawn from the memory. Then we had to go back to the room and redraw it. In the second drawing the perspective has change because it now was me that drove the car and the way I see the space is through the rear view mirror.

Technical drawing

The development of the Black box The idea was then you saw into the box you saw the two front seats as if you where sitting in the back seat. You also saw the ‘rear view mirro’ where you could see yourself in the eye. This should have a double meaning in whose eyes you saw? The space captured in fragments of double curve surfaces.

Model of villa Tugendhat 1:100 The first part of the assignment was in a group of three where we should make a case study of villa Tugendhat by Mies van der Rohe.

Analysis of villa Tugendhat The rest of the project was individual work. 2D analysis diagrams of villa Tugendhat

Axonometric drawing The analysis should then be draw into a axonometric. Is happened by drawing all the elements in different layers of trace paper and then put it together in photoshop

Plaster models From the axonometric drawing two plaster models was made

Construction tectonics and materials - First part Construction of a beam that then should be stress tested digital and physical. Group work of 6 persons.

Construction tectonics and materials - last part Construction of a structure in tree and steel at Godsbane. The theme of the structure was to pass.

Final construction The construction was build as a truss and could carry one-two persons

Thy We got an old school that should be demolished to make some interventions in. Group work of 5 pers. Investigation of the light down to the cellar. - Documentation: time-lapse

Thy Documentation of the intervention. Time-lapse and photocollage

The Main Assignmaent on first year Individual work Photos from site on the closed slaughterhouse tulip

Analysis of site Focus on the roof landscape


Ideas for inhabitation The idea was to make some interventions through the roof structures and make a new connection to the different roofs. This evolved into a labyrinth.

Development of the labyrinth On the first day on the site, when I wanted to take a photo, I felt on my bag with my computer in it and split the screen. This pattern then became the starten point to develop the passages of the labyrinth

Development of the labyrinth The pattern was put down over the buildings to form the labyrinth. The pattern was later turn into a more straight lines with 45째 angles inspired from the pipes on the roofs and the relief.

Instant Aarhus An inflatable city. The group considst of 3rd and 2rd year students. The 3rd year students had a weak before work with an idea that we all in the group should make. The idea was that two cambers should be closed to eachother and to get the cambers you have to seperat. When the 2nd year students join the project they had to help making the idea possible to make from the materiels we got to the assignment.

The Semester project 3. Semester The project was seperated into 4 phases. Phase 1 was Induvial. Phase 2 group of 4. phase 3 and 4 group of 2 Diagrams of fog - Phase 1 From the first part of the semester project.

Case study - Phase 2 Second part of the semester project was to make a case study of The Palace of Sports by FĂŠlix Candela and The Small Palace of Sports by Pier Luigi Nervi. The focus was to understand the tectonics in the structures. To understand how the forces worked in a truss systems we made 2d trusses of wood sticks and thread.

Combine weather phenomena Phase 3. Went together in groups of 2. Some of the proberties of the fog and snow.

The Investigations The idea was to effect the wind by the shapes of the stuctures and thereby effect the snow and fog. because the weather phenomena had an effect on covering and visual connections.

Probe 1 Test of a curved and a sharp shape and the relation between these when put together in different situations.

Probe 3 From the results of Probe 1 two configurations where set up. One that inclosed and one that exclosed the snow. Each shape in the configuration was formed after the function in the configurations.

Probe 4 After Probe 3 it was decided to only work with one type of shape. The shape that was investigated and chose was asymmetric which gave it different properties depending on its direction to the wind.

Probe 5 When the shape of the stucture was found the investigation of how the configuration should be begain. It ended with a more long configuration that lay across the wind because not only was the wind effected by the structures themselves but also the relation between them.

The structure When the shape of the structures was found the development of the the steel structures begain.

Architecture Theory Investigation of time and how it can be documentated. The collage shows the intensitet of sound and surroundings and the velocity of the movements in five focus locations around the crossroad with Thorvaldsensgade and Vester Alle. The focus locations were chosen because of change in the intensitet and velocity.

3. Semester 2013/14

What is your assessment of the weaknesses of work processes and assignment solutions? In what ways would it be possible for you to improve on these solutions? One of the greater weaknesses of the semester project was the shortcoming of material. The project was there and a lot of thoughts was thought but it never came down into the material. So instead of showing the project we had to tell the project which is not the optimal thing to do because you lose the overview and the details of the project. Another weakness in the the semester project was that we went stock in the development of the investigation about snow and wind. We was too focus to get the formation of the structures right that we made a lot of experiments just to specify a outcome we already got and that could not be more precise in the real world because of the winds variation. This investigation took too must of our time that we did not have the time to go deeper to some of the other aspects in the project. The reason why I use the term ‘we’ and not ’I’ in the description of the weakness above is that our group work was very close. We did most of the project together which did that we talk a lot about the project and made a lot of thoughts but then we did not materialize it because we both knew what we has talking about. We both had difficulties to take decision because we were worry to lock ourself which actually was what we did by not making a decision. A thing that could had been done was to spilt up sometimes so one of us did one thing and the other another thing. In that way we could have produce more, because we have to show the other one about what we had work with. It was first in the end of the semester project that we split up which got us further in the process. What is the most important thing you have learnt from these assignments? How can you build on what you have learnt? One of the things I have learnt is to be more independent and have easier to make self studies. It was in the end of the semester project that I decided to make a digital 3d model. I was familiar with Rhino and could do some few thing but I could not make organic or complex forms. But then I just began to search for tutorials and learn it by myself. This has showed me that it not so difficult to do self study and find the information you need. What were the main challenges in relation to these assignments? What aspects might you develop and become better at? First of all I have to better to produce materials both to presentations but also as a process tool. Of cause there should be a reason to make the material and not just to produce more. I have to be focus on what I produce, be aware of what I will tell and what the material tells. I have to be more experimental in models and drawings, and not only have it all in the head. Also this can in an earlier stage in the process show if the project has another potential then first known. This is Also a thing I have to work with to accept that not all mistakes are bad but can have a great influence on the project. I have to be more open to mistakes and not be so controlled that I overlook a potential. therefore I have to reflect more on in the process to see if it is going the right way or if there are other opportunities Also I want to continue to improve my skills in digital and analog drawing and be conscious of combine those two.
