SLEEPING MODULES IN SHEET STEEL 2nd semester // Experimental housing using one material. The sleeping modules in sheet steel were inspired by paper-folding. The sheets of steel (6x 1500x 5000mm) are cut to give three different shaped triangles and no left over waste. The construction is strengthened by welding the triangles in angles. Every module is bolted to the next and the foundation with steel rods. The modules can be repeated and re-organized to house many sleeping places and be placed anywhere.

HOUSING ON AN ALLOTMENT PLOT 2nd semester // Experimental housing in a narrow, sloping plot. Housing for four in a narrow plot with sloping terrain at the Telthusbakken allotment. The whole plot is activated by the amorphous shaped foundation that slings downward. The foundation creates plateaus at different levels in the terrain, orchestrating a sequence through the house, and out into the garden. Solid wooden walls follow the foundation, curving around the rooms and straight glass walls enclose the living room and the kitchen where the curves are open towards the surrounding garden.

VISITORS CENTRE FOR BIODIVERSITY 4th semester // Public building B

Visitors Centre for Biodiversity in the North Harbour of Copenhagen. The area is flat and low, and stretches from beach to marshy fields. The design of the building is inspired by a path meandring discretely through undisurbed nature. Built with sloping ramps 1:20, the building moves with the landscape. The building protects and opens into a variety of areas. The green surroundings can be experienced from different angles and levels.

Building B 1st floor

Although a large area in the centre is designated to the public, most of the terrain remains undisturbed to retain a healthy environment for plants and animals.

The centres functions are integrated in the path by using a construction of trusses. The centre unfolds itself with trusses in the outer wall. A double layer of trusses in some places increases the headroom, and several levels and spacial trusses bridge the long span between the outer walls.

CREATIVE PRODUCTION IN MOSS 5th semester // Urbanism: future cities

G OG G BL LOG GG B LO B

The City of Moss lies 50km south of Oslo and tends to be thought of as “just a crossroad”. We want to brand Moss as “A CULTURAL CITY THAT IS LIVELY AND PULSATING” Concentrating on the theory that groups of creative people bring economic growth to an area, our vision was to trigger contrasts in user groups and activities, creating both friction and diversity.

PARTY

Guerilla Culture: A group of highly initiatory people are invited to establish themselves in key buildings in the area. They will perform various stunts (free cinema, concerts, light shows, temporary installations, dancing etc.), with the goal of creating publicity for the area, engaging and leading onto more symbiotic interaction between different user groups.

The area was characterized by poor public availability, heavy traffic, a poorly utilized seafront and large empty spaces. A new bridge for bicycles and pedestrians will provide a better flow and connect the area to the city.The heavy traffic is diverted to the back, along the rock edge.

The pink areas are specific zones for establishing creative productions and the preservation of characteristic buildings. The zones would be regulated by the municipality to protect against exploitation from private property development. So as gentrification gradually condenses the city and area around the zones, the enviroment in these lungs of creativity will be retained, protected by the municipality.

THE SPECIFIC ZONES

FOOD AND ART PASSAGE:

Food and Art Passage

The existing butcher and fish shop are expanded into a farmers market with a restaurant. The passage has changing exhibitions, and the open space provides room for temporary installations.

Music and Metal:

This zone also composes different artistic expressions.The hall with a vaulted ceiling is for metal and glass workshops. The brick building on the waterfront is a rehearsal hotel for musicians. The brick building behind the Boat hotel is the headquarters of Momentum, the Nordic Biennial of Contemporary Art. The large open space allows for monumental sculptures. There are also studio dwellings connected to the various fields of artistic enterprise in this zone.

Literature and studios:

Audiatur is a publishing company already established in the area. Printing facilities fill the old brick building. The enormous white hall is used for studios, exhibition hall and storage. The north end of this zone has many studio dwellings. A house of literature opens directly out to the promenade.

SNOW SCULPTING Hovden Snow and Ice Sculpture is an annual event in regi of Agder Art Centre: http://prosjekt.agderkunst.no/ The sculptures are up to 3m x3m x6m and are made from tightly packed snow cubes. Every sculpture is made by a team of three to five people working for a week with saws, shovels and rasps. The snow sculptures have a life span of about six weeks depending on the weather and it is estimated that 150 000 people view the snow sculptures every winter. Hovden 2009 (left page) Leading artist: Piet Siig. Participating as a beginner artist. Hovden 2010, (right page) Leading artist: Elisabeth Kristiensen. Participating as an intermediate artist.
