Goal:

I want to take a year of internship after my first three years of architecture studies. I am eager to see and learn what the profession actually is all about. The exchange of experience an internship gives would really develop my understanding for architecture. Graphic design is something that I want to study to improve my ability to communicate my ideas.

Why AT?:

My interest in architecture was born when I first played the computer game The Sims. I always liked building the house better than actually playing the game. In high school did I read sciences with a special orientation towards mathematics and computer science. I also added the courses in architecture that the school provided. Here I learned many of the programs we use at Architecture and engineering. I did understand during these three years in high school that I really wanted to study architecture. After a two-year break from the studies I needed to refresh my knowledges and therefore studied some mathematics and physics at Chalmers before applying to Architecture and engineering. I like the mixture of artistic architecture courses and more definite engineering courses even though I feel more like an architect.

Skissprocessen började med att skapa 10 enkla konceptmodeller i skala 1:500. Vi valde ut de två modeller som vi ansåg hade störst potential att vidareutveckla och gjorde nya, mer detaljerade modeller av dessa i skala 1:100. Förslaget ovan till vänster var det som tilltalade oss mest redan från början, då vi fann stora kvalitéer i rumsligheterna som skapades mellan stålvajrarna i hängbron. Det fanns dock invändningar mot brons konstruktion och vi var tvungna att kompromissa i utformandet för att gå vidare med idén. Kvar fanns nu egentligen bara den stora, bärande limträbågen i annan utformning och överflödiga detaljer hade försvunnit till förmån för en konstruktiv smäckerhet. Till höger är den slutgiltiga modellen i skala 1:50.

Concept:

The main concept was to create an unpretentious building available to everyone. To achieve this the roofs are tilted and accessible directly from the urban parks ground level. A special silent asphalt is applied to the entire site, including the roof. The asphalt open up for people to use the park for skating and cycling. In the winter the roof acts as a slope perfect for skiing or sledding.


Site

Social space

Split in two

Break up the ground

Asphalt is dominating the urban environment, concealing a enchanted place beneath.

We make room for various activities on the site for all the seasons.

Public and private

Noise reduction

Rubberized asphalt

Enter the magic

Creating one public roof accessible for everyone and one private roof accessible to the opera visitors during breaks.

To face all directions the site splits in two parts, a north side and a south side.

To reduce the street noise and the vibrations on the roof a rubberized asphalt is applied on both the street and the roof.

The rubberized asphalt reduces tire and engine noise with 50-75%, resulting in a lower noise level for the entire site.

By breaking and lifting up the ground the opera gets exposed, creating a sloping roof that can be used for various activities.

To enter the enchanted place of opera you have to go below the urban asphalt.

n

Soundscape

The traffic along Rue Peel and Rue St-Jacques generates most of the noise in the surroundings. With noise levels of 60-70 dBA with some peaks at +70 dBA from the airplanes.

Urban furniture

Like the building is pushing through the ground so does these obstacles randomly over the site. They are perfect to lie down on and reading a book, sit down and just relax or why not just make a sweet pop-shuvit of the ledge to impress your friends.

Entering the magic

The arrival to the opera begins with a descend into the bright shining light under the black asphalt. Well inside you immediately get the feel of the visual connections between the different levels. To give the visitors a clean and clutter free lobby the doors are concealed behind large screens reaching all the way from the bottom floor all the way up to the roof. To guide the visitors where to go the back of the screens are shining with a guiding red light. 8

Green room (v)

The Green Room is a two-story room with a more private space in the lower room and a public space in the upper room. It’s a room that can work not only as a ordinary green room but also as a multipurpose room during different venues. Operas: Pre/post events on the upper level where the performers and visitors will have a visual interaction. If the performers want to be more private they can enter their dressing rooms. Rehearsal room Performance: When there is a smaller performance in the rehearsal room the green room will work as a lobby with direct access to the exterior. Other days: The green room can be used separately from the lobby so there could be different workshops, exhibits and ensembles in different parts of the building at the same time.

Secondary stage

The rehearsal room designed for multipurpose. It is capable of hosting small performances as well as rehearsal for a full opera orchestra. The rehearsal room functions as a secondary stage with its own separate entrance. The balconies are for the audience mainly and provides the visitors a good view. The acoustics of the room are designed for flexibility. The reflective panels covering the double glass walls can be tilted to increase the scattering and exposing the back part of the planes that is covered with heavy absorbing material.

Double Shell

The hall and the main stage are built using the “box in a box� approach: a concrete room contained inside a second concrete shell. The physical connections between the two structures are kept to a minimum to avoid flanking transmissions. The inner room is suspended on springs with rubber foundations. The space between the roofs of both shells is filled with elastic absorbent material for structural purposes.


Reflection

It was a big and complex task at a challenging location. We had to consider lots of noise generating sources such as car traffic, an underground highway, railroad and airplanes surrounding the lot. The task was to create an opera for the university and therefore we really wanted to make it a public space available for everyone. I think the idea with tilting planes and asphalt make the building and its environment unpretentious and inviting for the public. The tilting roof made it hard to draw a good plan and we struggled a lot with it. The outcome is okay but there are still room for improvements. In regard of multipurpose use I think we really succeeded. Especially with the green room that functions both as a green room for performers when there is an ongoing play, and a second lobby when there is an event in the rehearsal room. Overall I am glad that we chose a such strong concept and managed to complete it despite all the challenges. One can see that the concept penetrates most parts of the building. I am satisfied with the final result and the work we did.

The sluices in Trollh채ttan is obsolete and needs to be expanded. In connection with this expansion a visitor hub is planned to span over the sluice built in 1800. A complex and challenging task but really interesting to design.

Examiner:

Morten Lund

Tools:

SketchUp Adobe Ps, Id, AutoCAD

14

Concept:

My main concept was the views. I wanted to improve the existing viewpoints as well as create new ones. I also wanted to make sure the sluice became accesible to the public without being exploited too much. I chose to create a floor of glass right above the sluice. The glass floor reaches up half a meter on the walls framing the entire sluice and focusing the visitors attention towards it. If one want to get real close to the sluice walls one can walk the footbridge hanging down into the sluice.


The entrance to Stranna is located at the highest point around the sluice. The walk there offer a limited view over the sluice to not reveal too much of what is to come: the spectacular glass floor that frames the entire lock while standing in the middle of the building. If one continue straight through the building one are met by a large panoramic window with magnificent view of the lake and the lock built in 1916. If one strives for even better view one can either take the elevator up to the roof terrace but you can also take the ramp that runs along the building’s facade to get there. The terrace is the highest point in the area and offer a 360° view of the entire sluice and event area. The terrace is covered with grass and is the perfect place for picnics, sunbathing or other summer activities. To get to the promenade hanging in the lock, one can either take an elevator down at the head of the sluice, or one can walk on an existing rock path that connects to the bridge a bit down in the sluice. The promenade is illuminated at night and those who are bold enough to visit are in for an exciting and dramatic sluice experience.

In this drawing one can see how the southwest part of the hub is supported by a huge concrete pillar. This pillar also functions as a elevator shaft and can bring visitors from the ground level underneath the building into the hub and even to the roof terrace. One can also see how the glass floor is situated right above the sluice.

Reflection

I did find this project really hard because of the limitations in the program. The sluice is a cultural heritage so we could not use the wall or the bottom of the sluice for our construction. This limitation made it hard to make the sluice accesible to the public without touching it. I was slow started in this project and could not come up with an appealing idea. When I finally found a concept I liked, things went pretty smoothly. I focused much on sightlines and viewpoints and allowed the building to take form from this. I was especially pleased with the glass floor that I think turned out great. I am fond of the idea with the low windows framing the sluice. I received great critique on the parts of the project that I had put most effort in. I did not receive equally good critique on the plan and some other minor stuff. Although I did not expect it either when I actually put most effort in the concept. Despite the slow start and lack of good ideas the proposal turned out good I am fond of my concept. Overall a nice project.

Concept:

To create new meeting points and increasing the people flow to Kungstorget. The simple construction provides the visitor to focus on the variation in details such as the special railing. The urban space is lower and wider on the park side than the higher and narrower space at the city side. Therefore the bridge is designed to be more open towards the park. The widest part of the walkway are on the park side, the railing is constructed to be more open at this side as well. The asymmetric catenary arch has its lower side towards the park.

“As hangs the flexible line, so but inverted will stand the rigid arch.”

- Robert Hooke, 1660

The inspiration for our bridge’s final design came from an inverted catenary curve – the ultimate shape for a stable arch. But to be able to apply this to our concept of visually linking the two city spaces together, we tilted the arch. By doing this, we had created the asymmetrical shape of the glulam arch.

The two sides of the moat that the bridge connects are very different. The city space is narrower and higher on the side of Kungstorget and the spaces below the trees of Kungsparken are lower and wider. It was with this observation, the idea of an asymmetric shape as a translation of the city spaces came to be. The high part of the bridge faces the city and the lower end spreads out to the open park. To the right are two pictures illustrating this translation through spatiality emerging on the bridge.

The main purpose of a bridge may be to connect two sides together, but we value a bridge’s possibilities to also connect people. This is why the deck of the bridge varies in width throughout its whole span. The deck narrows on the very middle of the bridge to almost force people to meet. On the side of the park, the deck widens more than on the city side, to help create the spatiality we’ve been striving for in our concept.

Process of concept 28

In the picture above the lighting of the arch and the bridge railing with its specific characteristics is shown. The railing consists of 362 pieces on each side. In total, they rotate 90째 from one side to the other to visually open up by the side of the park and become more closed appearance by the city side. Every single piece rotates as little as 0,249째 in relation to the one next to it.

CONCEPT 29


During night time, Catenary Bridge really shows its true self. The lighting by each foot of the arch emphasizes the silhouette of the bridge’s catenary arch as well as gives it an almost levitating expression. Where each cable is fastened in the bridge, a fixture is placed to light the deck from the outside. The light filters through the railing and throws a comfortable and varying glow on the wooden bridge deck.

Reflection

Once again a group project where I really learned a lot. It was for me an unusual structure in this course. An investigating process with models. A rewarding process which gave me new perspective on models. The concept we worked with turned out impossible to build so just a few days before hand in we had to change the entire concept. Despite this setback the final outcome was really good. A clean and solid construction which received good critique. A good extra course and experience to work entirely with models.

The task was to plan row houses with passive house standard. In the engineering course parallell to this one, we were able to calculate the energy uses of the construction to make sure it met the standards. This project was part 2 in a three-piece project and is reality-based. The architecture office White did the first part and it is already built.

Tools:

SketchUp Revit Adobe Ps, Id AutoCAD Matlab

34

Concept:

We have designed three different house units partly to create a variation in the urban space but also to fulfill the different concepts we worked with. To achieve energy efficient houses we made them narrow and deep to minimise the façade area. To prevent the houses from being too dark we created an atrium in the center of every house type. This was our main concept that we tried to implement throughout the entire project. We also wanted a balcony and a garden facing south for every house type. Our goal was to create a standard Swedish house with a luxurious touch.

The houses

The houses are located along a main road. Generous openings against the already built block Äppleträdgården and the next-to-be block creates a sense of community with the surrounding neighbourhood. Meanwhile, the houses are placed to overlap each other to reduce sight lines penetrating the block. This give the street a more intimate feeling.

Our neighbourhood is located in a sparsely built area with high tower blocks consisting of cheap rental apartments. We therefore thought the neighbourhood needed larger homes create a better mix of people. All residences are therefore projected to be around 130 square meters. The main target group that is supposed to live in the area are families consisting of both young children and teenager.

All apartments have a private garden where one can enjoy breakfast in the summer sun. Every house also have a terrace facing south. This creates a more private space.

35


House 1 stands out with its carport and its adjacent narrow kitchen. In the residence there is a clear division between public and private spaces. The ground floor is the public space with the living room and kitchen. On the second floor there is a second living room with a more private nature and three bedrooms.

In House 2 the atrium is located in the center of the housing body. It becomes a bright pearl that lights up every room in the home and is the first thing you encounter when you step through the front door. It gives the ability to have a completely open plan on the more public ground floor and visually binds together all rooms. The atrium also creates a visual connection between the two floors.

It has good audiovisual contact between the ground floor and central parts of the second floor through the atrium and a slab opening next to it. The bedrooms are located by the two faรงades and are shielded from the public parts.

Energy

Due to the atrium the passive house standards felt out of reach so we chose to aim for a mini energy house. We succeeded to reach the mini energy house standard. BBR:s demand on energy use for heating up a house built in Gothenburg is a maximum of 110 kWh/m2year. The houses in the lantern is calculated to use 62 kWh/m2year. This mean that every home will save ca 6000 SEK/year.

Reflection

This was our first project that we did in groups. I really liked to be able to discuss architecture with someone who cares as much as I do about the project. Because these houses were about to be somebody’s home it was much focus on the plans. I like the idea with atrium and am very pleased that pleased that we managed to succeed really well with three different kinds of house units. I think the relation to the existing neighbourhood Äppleträdgården works really well. The mixture of an old standard Swedish house and modern angles and colours. I liked working in a group and I am really happy about the result that we produced. The critique we received was really great as well. I think I learned more in this project than any of the other ones.

Concept:

I worked with two main concepts. One was strong directivity that cuts through the two house bodies and continues out on the long jetty. The other concept is that one should have sea view regardless which room one is in.

Reflection

I am pretty satisfied with this project and kind of impressed by some of my ideas. I like the journey when you arrive in the evening. How you round the tree barriers and are met by two convex walls. How the setting sun shines straight through the gap and drag you out on the jetty. My strive to achieve both of my main concepts caused some problems like narrow stairs to the sauna. If I would have redrawn this project I would probably solve it in a different way.
