Main Project - Stockholm One, New Mårtensdal, SNM In May, the office won an architectural competition to build a new landmark in Hammarby Sjöstad, Stockholm. The location is next to the bridge between Skanstull and Gullmarsplan, by the southwest entrance to Hammarby Sjöstad. The project is a Highrise Office building that consists of two buildings. The120 meter high tower that houses offices, a restaurant at the top and shops at street level. The second building, the lowrise building, is built into the hill and connects the different ground levels with a corridor that houses shops and restaurants. Other features of the lowrise building are offices and parking garage. The idea is that the building should promote a better link between the travel center at Gullmarsplan and Hammarby Sjöstad. By creating a urban park that surrounds the lowrise and with a stair/ vertical park as it´s main focus point thit project aim is to really connected Gullmarsplan and Hammarby sjöstad. A connectiont that is missing today. The buildings are a total of 66,000 sqm. The project is done in collaboration with the Swedish architectural firm Scheiwiller Svensson Architects, and the client is Skanska AB.

Abstract What I mainly learned in my internship is how to work smarter, -in different programs, how to better plan the work and that everything takes 3x as long as you think it does. It is very important to have good leadership in the working process , particularly when working with architect competitions, because the work is often under high pressure and you work with tight deadlines. The City planning Competition (BKM ) that I worked with is an example of good leadership, Marieke was direct, well organized and extremely calm which affected the team positively. I almost didn´t experience that we were working with a competition. So if I were to compare my BKM experience with ETB and APA , I would say that leadership is crucial to how the workflow is working, which is the same as how the staff are feeling mentally. I have learned that the creative work process is important, one should not forget how to work with your hands, how to build and draw. It is inspiring to work with interesting projects and a luxury to be able to choose which projects the office would like to work with, like Sauerbruch Hutton. BUT I do not want to become an architect who only work without having any life outside the office, as so many do in this SH. It’s not worth it even if it is very fun and rewarding.
I also learned that I can work extremely hard, which also means that I probably can work myself to death. I am very grateful to SH see their trainees and students who should grow into the architect role. You really get the time to learn different programs to find things that you are curious to learn more about, and space to create your own identity in the office and to find your own specialist area. My main role was to create atmospheric images and all other work to be done in Photoshop. I have always enjoyed working with images but during the last six months, I’ve really gotten the chance be developed in that area. After the time at SH I realize that the repetition of the same work you do (building a house in 2D, then in Rhino, and after that in some bad 3D version of the 2D program and so on. ) it makes me very frustrated. I only intend to put in some extra energy and become good at a 3D program. 2D is extremely frustrating and time consuming and I really don´t see the point of learnig it really good. I think that you need to. I believe you have to choose your software as an Architect. You can not be the best in all of them.
WEEK 1 - 23
01 Monday 12/08/2013 First day at the office and almost my first day in Berlin. Nice. The day begins with a tour together with my supervisor Jonas Luther and information about the project that I will work with the next few months. The project known as the Stockholm new MĂĽrtensdal (SNM) is run by a working group consisting of three people. ItÂ´s led by Jonas Luther, and besides me another intern is also included in the group. After I completed all the formalities, familiarized myself with my new workplace, managed all new logins, and read my welcome email, I felt ready to take on my first tasklearning MicroStation V8i. The rest of the day is spent in front of different tutorials in Microstation. How come all Architect office are working in different programs? Feels good that I have time to learn the sofware.
Tursday 13/08/2013 09.30-18-30 Working in Microstation. Bring headphones!
01 Wednesday 14/08/2013 The unfolded elevation. Todayâ€™s task will be to make an unfolded elevation of the low-rise building which then can be used to test different options for facades on a physical model. It turned out to be harder than I thought because I was not fully aware of how the house looks on all its sides. One difficulty is that the house is part of the terrain where the parking garage is underground from one side, (the east side) and the building thus has more floors on the west side. Have managed to learn the essential tools and immediately realize that I have worked unwise when I made the plan the day before. Well, now I know better.
Thursday 15/08/2013 Documentary filming at the office. Continuing with the elevation and adds an elevation showing floor levels and stairs. Are interrupted in my work and pulled into a documentary filming when Matthias Sauerbruch comes by and introduces himself. Will later hear that there apparently will be a film about green architecture, I hope that Iâ€™ll be cut off from the film. Just my luck. I manage to finish my elevations during the afternoon, I get the task to find a smart system for facad modules. The facade is a low bearing facade. The idea is to design a facade which can be assembled from modules that can be combined in different ways. I get three different types of facad as a starting point but I`m also encouraged to make suggestions and new ideas for the facade.
01 Friday 16/08/2013 Continuing with the facades, and I can really see that I probably will work on the same task for a while.
02 Monday 19/08/2013 Monday, proceeds with the facades of the low-rise building. Iâ€™ll start with the color scheme for the facade to test different layouts. Facade modules should probably be 2.40 m wide, to give a uniform expression.
Tuesday 20/08/2013 Still working in Microstation with the facade modules. Having huge problem to make the facades work without special solutions on every side of the building. Working until 9 pm.
02 Wednesday 21/08/2013 Starting my day by finishing the unfolded section, the moduels are still everything but perfect but overall it looks ok for now. Printing my work in scale 1:500 for the meeting with Matthias Sauerbruch. 12:00-13:15 Process meeting with Project managers Jonas Luther and Juan Lucas Young, the other intern, Mari Paz Agunndez and Matthias Sauerbruch. It´s like having a review for a project back in school with posters, a booklet and a model in scale 1:200. Mattias Sauerbruch is critical towards everything. Almost. Things that needs to be addressed according to Matthias: Lowrise buildingHow to make it more interesting from all it´s sides, how can we change so that the building don´t have a backside that is just flat and straight forward?
Bridge discussionThe client have reasintly demaned a bridge between the Tower and the lowrise builing, couse they belive that it will be easier to find a buyer if they could sell the wole project as one building. How do you connect the buildingings? How would the connection look like, volume, facade treatment-as a separate thing or as a contination of lowrise building? Public stairTo connect the green park from Gullmarsplan and the lower part on Hammarby sjöstad side they made a stair/green area/ vertical garden. According to Matthis there will be a vindtunnel on the upper side of the stair created by the buildings so they/we need to come up with a solution, maybe a glass wall? And make wind studies over the stair/ the gap.
Small tower, lowrise-buildingChange the shape of it, make it go out more on the back side in order to create a more interesting facade? Introduce the same stair like facade that exists on the Tower on the smaller towers (lowrise-building) facade that is facing the road cross. FacadesHow to make the whole volume more to come to gether? Seems like it is a vertical gap between the elements in the facade, how do we deal with that? - Work with collouring vertical element with similar colourChange the grid for the parking in order to get another grid system, sise and/or change conrer angels. And think at the project as a whole, dont focus on the details! Back to the drawing board. We need to add the bridge and solve the new connection between the lowrise and the tower, change the shape for the backside of the lowrise and
change the shape og it´s tower. So, my unfolded facade wont work anymore. The rest of the day is spent by testing new colors for facade modules-in general this time. 14:00-15:00 Planing meeting with all interns, dividing the to do list for Sauerbruch Hutton Summer Party that will take place on the back yard this friday.
Thursday 22/08/2013 Working hours 10.30-21.30 Working with the facade on low-rise building in Microstation again.
02 Friday 23/08/2013 Working hours, 09.45-19.00 09.45-13.15 Client meeting at the office with a group of five persons from Skanska, Sweden. Jonas and Juan Lucas made a Powerpoint presentation-showing the new connection between the Tower and the low-rise. Discussion continues at the physical model, how should the bridge look like, do we have to have a bridge, how should the facade look like etc. Really interesting to be a part in the meeting. 14.00-19.00 All interns prepares the Summer party that will start at 7pm.
Saturday 24/08/2013 Working hours, 10.00-14.00 Cleaning up after the party.
03 Monday 26/08/2013 Working hours, 9.40-21.00 Change the layout for floorplans in the low rise building. Working in Microstation, still not a fan of this program.
Tuesday 27/08/2013 Working hours, 09.30-21.30 Doning new outlines for every floorplan due to canges in the main grid baset on the grid system for the parking space on floor 1-4. The new grid system is 2,4m wide. Everything is being done in Microstation.
03 Wednesday 28/08/2013 Working hours, 09.30-21.30 and 23.00-03.00 Keep on working with outlines, starting to define the new conection between low rise and tower. Putting in furnitures in plan for the bridge plan and learn how to use patterns in Microstation. Finnished by lunch time. Starting to work with images showing different view points from the site with the project. Working in Photoshop with rendered images from Rhino as a base. My first view point is from The bridge ( Skanstullsbron) Looking towards the site with the Tower in the foreground. I think that working with images is one of the most fun things to do, so far.
Sauerbruch Hutton normaly use a external firm for all ther images, Bloom Images. This triggered me to make better images than them, and luckely I succeded to do that. Feels good to work with a program that I do know for a change. And itÂ´s also fun to have some time to actually lern more tips and tricks in a program and feel that IÂ´m getting better. Left the offive at 21.30 and kept working from home, too ecited to stop when having some ideÂ´s that needed to be tested
Thursday 29/08/2013 Working hours 10.30-23.30 10.30-17.00 Working with the Bridge view in Photoshop. 17.00-23.30 My boss like the final result and gives me a new image to work with, a street view showing stores, the restaurant and so on.
03 Friday 30/08/2013 Working hours, 10.30-20.00 We are suposed to hand in all atmospheric images from the project to Skanska at 3pm today. IÂ´m already done with my task so I start on a new view showing the bridge/stair and the lower part of the low rise and the base of the Tower. My aim om this one was to try to make a night render with rain. Watching a lot of different tutorials on youtube for how to do nght renderings, light renderings, rain and rainy streets. Learning a lot and I really like the result even though we probably canÂ´t use ithis image for the exebition. People in general seams to prefere sunny images with happy people without a soul and showing a place that is nothing like Sweden. Maybe that makes sense. Total work in August: 133h
04 Monday 02/09/2013 Work hours, 11.00-19.30 Monday, proceeds with the Photoshop and the street view-day rendering with sun, summer and a lot of people eating ice-cream.
Tuesday 03/09/2013 Work hours, 12.00-20.30 Jonas ( my boss ) is in Stockholm for a project meeting with the client. Not so much to do at the office today. Working on my night rendering in order to learn more tips in Photoshop and to try some cool effects.
04 Wednesday 04/09/2013 Work hours, 10.00-20.00 Doing the night render and finishing the day render from the street view that appearently had some small mistakes, l made one road too much.

05 Monday 09/09/2013 Work hours, 10.40-21.00 Scaling all facades for the lowrise in Illustrator in order to print them and then glue them on to the model that is in scale 1:200. The problem was that the physical model and the Rhino model had different measurments. What to do, measure the model and then change all facades in Illustrator. A lot of extra work. Just like in School.
Tuesday 10/09/2013 Work hours, 10.00-19.00 10.00-15.00 Being the only Swede in our office and working in a project with a Swedish client, my task is to translate everything from all meetings and, a lot of other things regarding the work that is going on in Sweden. Everything, like meeting protocol etc. is written in Swedish. Makes no sense. The positive thing for me is that i can follow everything that is going on in the project, and see what they discuss on meetings. I feel up to date. The bad part is that it is really hard to actually understand what they are refuring to in there protocol when they ( men that work at Skanska) cant even wright proper Swedish and talk in a verry internal language. 15.00-19.00 Scaling facades for print in Illustrator.
05 Wednesday 11/09/2013 Work hours, 10.20-20.30 Scaling facades for print in Illustrator. This job takes for ever. Everytime we think that we are done, we need to change something that was wrong when printed.

05 Friday 13/09/2013 Work hours, 10.30-00.30 I was looking forward to a short day at the office, becous we were done with almost everything we needed to to for the moment. Never do that. Instead of a short and calm friday they put me on the competition team that had a deadline next monday. The Project is Montage du Parc (BNP) a Bank in Brussels, Belgium. My part was do make some different diagrams based upon plans from Microstation- putting them in to Illustrator and then create nice diagrams showing the grid system of floorplans and the parking garage.

They say that they are feeling inspried after walking around in the building and after a visit to the model workshop. I know the feeling. Major problems with my computor- my log in dont work, so I cant work on anything regarding the project. Doing some tutorials in Illustrator. Jonas is late, and almost the whole office is on vacation. Jonas tells me to go home early. Love this Friday.

New things to be studied further after this meeting: New entrance solutions in the lowrise, mirror the stairways due to evacuations, High part retraction- of the corner of the lowrise, levels for terraces and levels for floor hights on Hammarby backen, Placement of ventilation rooms in the lowrise. 16.00-20.20, working in Microstation with the file 130724.lowrise_facade. Update the plan towards a new grid system, place all the functions such as cours ( stairs, elevators ) and functions.
Tuesday 08/10/2013 Work hours, 10.40-20.10 (8,5h) SNM_2D_131027_plan_7.dgn. Working with adjusting the plans in Microstation so that they will correspond to the new grid system that is 2,4 m wide - based upon the parking grid.
09 Wednesday 09/10/2013 Work hours, 10.40-19.45 (8h) SNM_2D_131009_facade_plans.dgn. Making facade modules and placing them on all plans in the Tower, 31 floors. A basic facade module are 2.40m whide then there are special ones in the center of the Tower and the corners. Starting with adjusting everything in an unfolded elevation of the Tower in 2D then making changes in plan on every floor. The system is that after every 8th floor the modulas are repeated again wich makes the job a bit less timeconsuming. I hope.
Thursday 10/10/2013 Work hours, 10.30-20.00 (8,5h) Keep on working with placing facade modules on all floor plans in the Tower.
09 Friday 11/10/2013 Work hours, 10.40-19.40 (8h) Keep on working with placing facade modules on all floor plans in the Tower.

Tuesday 15/10/2013 Work hours, 10.00-19.00 (8h) 10.00-12.00 Making some smaller changes for the Tower plans in Microstation. 12.00-19.00 Saving all plans as a PDF and inporting them to Rhino. My new task is to make all the same changes for the facade modules but this time in the 3D-model in Rhino so it will be updated. Hate Rhino, and I guess this is more a way for me to learn the program than to actually do something good and to contribue to the project.
10 Wednesday 16/10/2013 Work hours, 10.15-20.10 (9h) 10.15-11.00 Keep trying to learn how to work in Rhino, still not convinced that I ever gonna use this program after my internship. Why work in 2D and then do the exact same thing in another 3D program insted of working in just Revit from the beginning?

After printing 3 options for the site layout I head down to the work shop in order to start producing models. Love this work shop, all this materials, the smell of creativity..you could make everything here. Ok, but this site models are just supposed to work as working models so IÂ´m doing them in foam material. Firts step is to spray gluing my printed sites on to thick carboards as a base, then starting to cutting foam buildings and trying to figure out what kind of material to use for making the arena shape. It is kind of hard to make a good shape for a Arena in scale 1:1000, the arena will be something between 2-3 cm high in this scale.
11.00-20.10 I just got the opportunity to be working temporary with a really short Competition. Feeling exited, this can be interesting and fun! The Competition is a conseptual task called Appassionata Park (APA). We need to create a Arena and a surrounding Park for Appassionata horse show in Munich, a Arena for 2000 visitors. The budget is 18million Euro, so the arena need to be kind of easy to build and in a cheap material. Everything need to be presented in a A3 broshyre at 12am on the 28th of October. What to show in the broshyre? The main concept shown as a program for the site, a site plan in scale 1:1000, floor plan of the Arena in scale 1:200, one section, elevations, Images showing one inside/outside perspectivs, details of the construction and cost calculations. Tom Geister, one of the assosiates at sauerbruch hutton start by introducing the site for the APA project and telling me about his main ideas regarding the program for the site.
Im going to start by making 3 proposuals for the park in models in scala 1:1000. I should also make sevaral different volumetrical options for the arena in the same scale based upon fast sketches made by Tom. This models shuld be done before monday when we will have our start up meeting for this Competition. Architects who will be working on this project are: Tom Geister, Marina Stoynova, Bettina Magistretti, and me. This project will be supervised by Matthias Sauerbruch.

Work hours, 09.40-21.30 (11h)
It is relly hard to make this small Arena models with a tent like construction in foam. Im test other materials such as clay but finding that gipson bandades are the best ones to use combined with steel thread for making the frame of the building. I´m down in the work shop building several models the whole day.
10 Friday 18/10/2013 Work hours, 09.40-20.20 (10h) 09.40-11.00, Finnishing my models. Made 8 different options for the arena and 3 proposuals for the park. Tom looks happy. 11.00-20.20, IÂ´m responsible for making the site plan in Microstation. Starting my new task by taking a Tutorial lesson called Microstation 2D for Competitions. Learning the basics about how to start a roject.
11 Monday 21/10/2013 Work hours, 10.10-21.10 (10h) 11.00-11.30 APA meeting. This is going to be a long week, our APA group has been reeduced and we are now me, Marina Stoynova-working in Rhino and doing everything in 3D and Bettina Magistretti -doing plans for the arena in 2D. And well yes, Falco will still do all the calculations, Juan Lucas will do the text and Matthis will still supervise the project. The good thing is that the deadline is moved from the 28th of October to the 30th! So 3 persons (me included) doing a kind of big arena project in 9 days. What to do? Main focus on the Arena and its roof construction made of wood covered with a PVC membrane .The client wants an Icon Building-like a theater that need to be dark inside, have a foayer, a stage for horses, seatings for 2000 persons, a black box for tecnical equipment, and a backstage. Program for the site-Beer garden, bathrooms, office, stables, hages, one Building for a mini Show, parking and a public park/garden. I kept on working on the site plan in Microstation after the meeting.
Tuesday 22/10/2013 Work hours, 09.30-20.45 (10,5h) My Big task for this day is to do some test printings of the site plan in different scales and paper in order to see which scale is best suited for the presentation. Site plan printed in scale 1:1000 (A3), scale 1:2000 (A3), scale 1:500 (A1), scale 1:500 (A0). The site fitts on a A3 paper in scale 1:1000 but you cant see the connections to the site, like the train connection with s-bahn and how the main roads are connecting to the car park. But my guess is that thatÂ´s not that interesting due to the fact that the client knows the area and gave us a conceptual layout for the site and what he wanted. After printing I start with collecting material for making perspectivs in Photoshop. Googleing horses, Appasionata Horse Show, and lights.
11 Wednesday 23/10/2013 Work hours, 09.30-20.20 (10h) Marina have made som kind of interior roof in Rhino so that I can start working with the Interior perspectiv in Photoshop. Creating a dark room with a bright spectacular horse show. Well that is what IÂ´m going for. Need to test different tecniques for how to create some good and realistic spot lights for the show in the Arena.
Thursday 24/10/2013 Work hours, 10.10-22.00 (11h) Keep on working with the Interior perspective. IÂ´m also making an conceptual exterior perspectiv in Photoshop of the site based upon a fast sketch of the Arena made by Tom. Starting to put everyting in and organizing the layout for the booklet in InDesign making a package so it will be ready when we need to print it on wednesday.
11 Friday 25/10/2013 Work hours, 10.10-20.00 (9h) Printing everyting we have for now-Meeting with Juan Carlos, Matthias, Bettina and Marina. According to Matthias and Juan Carlos- We need to lower the roof for the Arena and make some smaller changes in the shape of the roof and cover the â€œboxâ€? on the sides, place it closertoward the entrance from the train and make a separation made by hills from the public park and stables in order to turn the site in to a interesting park. Bettina also made some changes for the layout of the inside of the Arena, the seatings are only on one side of the stage-for a better viewing of the big screen and in order to make the roof smaller and to create a better curved shape. After the meeting I keep on working in Photoshop with the Interior perspective, making this new changes for the audience seatings.
Work hours, 14.30-03.15 (12,5h) Starting with making a elevation of the Arena in scale 1:500 and 1:1000, putting in peoples, trees and horses. This elevations will have a lot of information in them so that they also can work as a outside image insted of a perspective if needed.
Work hours, 15.15-00.15 (9h) Working with the elevations and also on the layout for the Booklet in InDesign.
12 Monday 28/10/2013 Work hours, 10.30-01.30 (14,5h) Crating the rest of the elevations in scale 1:500, updating them with the new Arena using rendered images made in Rhino by Marina. I start making outline peoples/horses in Illustration so that they can be used later in the section. Working some on the Booklet in InDesign-updating it with the new material.
Tuesday 29/10/2013 Work hours, 10.30- Wednesday 13.00 (26 h) Bettina wants to put in some diagram showing how to use the site, flows and so on. I start making some diagram in Illustration based upon some fast sketches from Bettina. We have a meeting with a Ingenear about the roof and a landscape architect regarding the park and how to program the surrounding aroud the Arena. After the meetig Marina need to make some new roof changes and she also need to change tha shape by the entrance. Another change is the shape of the mini show, and the Beer garden. This means that we need to change everything again exept from my interior perspective. The good thing is that the landscape architect is doing a nice looking site plan that will be done tomorrow morning at 10.00. 20.00-Matthias calls and let us know that we should do a night/dawn image-showing the outside perspective of the park and looking toward the Arena, the mini show and the Beer garden. I start with the Image in Photoshop right away, knowing that this image probably will take me the whole night to do in order to make it look good. So this arena is suposed to â€œglowâ€? in the dark, and Matthias would like it to be green..the whole arena look like an gowing insect so I decide to make it torquois/white instead.
12 Wednesday 30/10/2013 Deadline for APA Copmetition at 12:00. The outside perspective is done at 07.00. Making some final changes in all diagrams in Illustration. At 11.10-Juan Lucas sends an email telling us that he want us to change the pavement for one of the paths in the park in the outside perspective, and to make the gloving Arena a bit whiter..starting to feel some stress and I make the decission that I still have time to make a fast change of the colour of the Arena but no time to change the pavement. We need to print everything at 11.30 in order to make it on time. We manage to hand it in on time and I can finally go home and have some sleep. My first Competition at this office is over, leaving the office at 13.00.

IÂ´m doing some Microstation tutorials, trying to get better on using layers and patterns. APA Presentation -Arup Bettina, Juan Lucas and Falco had the Personal presentation for the client Arup, and presented our proposual for the APA arena. Sauerbruch Hutton where the first ones to expose, and the client really liked our design and the approach with the park around the main arena accoding to Juan Lucas. They also had a model made by our brilliant model maker, JĂśrg Albeke. The client will decide who to work furter with next week.
Tuesday 05/11/2013 Work hours, 09.45-19.00 (8h) Working on a new version of an unfolded elevation for the lowrise in Microstation. They made some changes in tha layout for the plan which means that I need to correct the facade elements so that they are accurate. Next step is to put in all the colours on the facade modules and arrange them in separate layers. After working on correcting facade elements for a while I notice that nothing is perfect in this elevationwhen zooming in. This means that I need to redo everything. This will take me a week or more...this is really time consuming and kind of frustrating.
13 Wednesday 06/11/2013 Work hours, 09.50-20.50 (10h) Doing exactly the same as yesterday-changing facade modules in Microstation so that they have the same hight and fits perfectly together.
Thursday 07/11/2013 Work hours, 09.50-19.00 ( 8h) 09.50-12.00 Working on the unfolded elevation in Microstation.. never ending work task. 12.00-19.00 I have a new task, donÂ´t reallt know what to think about it.

Tuesday 12/11/2013 Work hours, 09.45-20.00 (9h15m) New task from Juan Lucas- I´m gonna join the Copetition team and work with Mareike, Marina and Caroline. My main task will be to produce images for the Bayern Kasserne project. This project is a competition, the hand in is 26 of November and the assignment is to create and develop a new Cityplan in an old military area in Munich. I just need to finish up the unfolded elevation for the SNM project before joining my new team. Working in Microstation the whole day. Starting to hate this elevation- it has to many problems and it´s impossible to make it perfect in this program. Sound strange but it´s true, even Lina agree with me when I showd her my problems with this elevation.
14 Wednesday 13/11/2013 Work hours, 09.45-20.00 (9h15m) 09.45-10.30 - Finnishing up my work on the elevation until it makes sence and itÂ´s good enough to hand over to someone else. 10.30-20.00 - Collecting materials for making Photoshop images.

The meeting is about the perspectivs, what to show and what style we should make them in. The problem is the we are not suppose to design the buildings just the layout of the area and the environment in it. So Mathias want some scetshy and vage buildings. So how to design without designing? 11.30-12.30 - We all have a Skype meeting with a landscape architect, Andrea that lives in Munich. The meeting is in german so I don´t follow but i get that they are talking about how they sholut think about what to show in this perspectivs. We sholud make before and after images, showing the area today and with our project. The thing is that we only have really bad photos from the park, taken in october or something and showing a forest in bad condition. So Mathias woud like me to create a image showing this new area in summer time, keeping the old trees from the photo and just putting in the new project. Really trickey task and I don´t think that he really knows what he is asking me to do. But let´s try to make it. Why not. Starting to work on the before and after image of the park view in Photoshop.

Printing everything for a meeting at 19.00 with Mathias and Marina to talk about how to proceed with the perspectives. After the meeting Mathias decides that we should design the buildings and just make 3 perspectives insted of 7, and then use Bloom images for doing some fancy renderings due to the short time we have before deadline.

My task is to read it, correct it and see that the text descriptions correspond to our project. When I´m done I discuss with Lina about the text and fill here in on what is missing and not. 15.30-19.30 - I´m back in Competitions again. This time I will be working with Tom as project leader and then the team is me and Carolin Franke another Intern. The Project is called Estrell Tower Berlin, ETB. So the task is to make Berlins tallest buliding- a 176m high skyscraper of 50 floors and around 700 hotel rooms over its existing 33,000 sq.m convention hall, parking garages and with an underground connection under a road to the existing Estrell hotel in Berlin, Neuköln. I start with google maps in order to get a feeling of the site and to see the location. Preparing some maps and images over the site in order to make a sitemodel.
Tuesday 03/12/2013 Work hours, 10.00-23.00 (12h) I´m going to start with making 5 versions of the tower and it´s surrounding buildings in scale 1:500. I will make everything as volumes in green stereofoam. My first problem is that we don´t have material enough so i need to start with gluing pieces together in order to be able to make 5 towers. This will take a while.
17 Wednesday 04/12/2013 Work hours, 10.15-21.00 (10h15min) Keep on working with some of the towers. IÂ´m done with all versions of the lower buildings. Start making the existing Estrell Hotel and some of the main important buildings on the site, making them in white stereofoam.
Thursday 05/12/2013 Work hours, 10.15-22.15(11h) Today is all about volume-now itÂ´s time to make the site pop and start to build it up and create the topography. Starting by printing the siteplan from Microstation in scale 1:500 in order to use it as a guide and save some time. Making the topography in white cardboard. After creating a base for the site model IÂ´m placing the 5 versions who now are done on the site model and taking some quick photos with my Iphone. Organizing my photos and adding a black background in Photoshop before sending them to Tom so that he can see how the different versions look like in model on site.
17 Friday 06/12/2013 Work hours, 10.15-00.30 (13h15min) Keep on working with the site model. The hard thing is that I only have a not so perfect 3D model to use for messuring the hights and the whole site is surrounded by infrastructure, a river and sloaps. Well nothing is perfect. 11.30-12.00 - Bettina is stressed as always and she asked me if I could help her to rebuild a box for her models. The issue was that Mathias is presenting them to the Client at lunch time and he refused to go in a cab with 2 differnt boxes for the models. So I need to make them all fit in the same box. Sounds fair. Cutting some of the corners in the big box and addig an extra layer then fixing some models on top of that layer so that he just can take the whole layer out and place it on a table. Problem solved in 30 minutes. Keep on working with the site model, adding infrastructure such as bridges and roads. Tom ask me if I think itÂ´s possible to make a presentation model for the client meeting if he give me the new version of the Tower on monday morning. The meeting is at 2pm. I told him NO, ItÂ´s reaaly hard to make a nice looking model based upon triangels in 4 hours!
18 Monday 09/12/2013 Work hours, 10.00-19.00 (8h) So when I arrived to the workshop at 10 I got a message that I should call Tom. I knew it! Tom comes down to the workshop and tell me that we need to make this new version og the tower in 4 hours, so Tom is taking some mesurments from the Microstation 3D model. Carolin me and Jรถrg is cutting, running and gluing parts together. Stressful but nothing is impossible. We finnish the model 2 minutes before the Taxi arrives and Tom,Mathias, Bettina and Carolin is off to have the second client meeting and to see the site. 15.00-16.00 - cleaning the workshop 16.00-19.00 - The team is back from the client meeting and Tom is informing us about it and explain the project in a powerpoint presentation. Then he show us how to work in Microstation 3D, just the basics. Microstation 3D look like a really old and bad version of SketchUp.
Tuesday 10/12/2013 Work hours, 10.00-23.00 (12h) IÂ´m going to make sections of the site with our building in it and show how it connects to the existing Estrell hotel. I also need to put in hights on the siteplan. Working in Microstation 2D.

Tom will have a meeting with a traffic ingenier and a landscape architect on the 18th to talk about how to solve the connection from the existing road to the new site and the bus square infront of the Hotel complex. Some of the problem are: - Shared spaces- pedestrians/busses/cars/bikes. - Entrance to the Hotel - Bus dropoff/ Taxi dropoff - Entrance to parking garage x2 - Taxi in waiting position - How to fit 60-80 buses Tower - Need to have a inner square where you can see all the functions - A inner city street in order to make it easy to orientate yourself in the building - 55 meters span for the roof - 4 m high ventilation floors/ technical floors x 3. Located on ground floor, in the middle and at the top of the Tower. - Lowbearing facade ( construction in the facade ) - Preefabricated bathrooms

Everything is “almost “finished, so now it only remains to polish the final things on everything so I’m working with my two elevations, one from the canal and the other one from the street, roof plan and site plan. Carolin has taken over the layout and I am very pleased about that.

Change the colors of the roof plan, looking at examples from our landscape architect-make the colors softer. Print 9xA0 posters on normal paper-rolle them and pack them.
