Course content

The course goal is to introduce the students to a dynamic design & build process where collaboration, decisions and architectural development are essential in an intensive and contextually complex environment. The students can develop their understanding of how context will frame the architectural development and how different external and internal factors will affect the results.

Learning methods and activities

The course will only accept 15 students. The course is organised as an intensive, obligatory, workshop including travels. The workshop will last approximately 7-14 days and result in a full scale build project in wood, most likely for an external client. In addition, the students will work with a preliminary task before the workshop, documentation of the results and a reflection on their practice. The work will largely be done as single team.
