Follow me through our studio called architecture and daylight! I promise you that there is no boring day in the school of architecture…
We spend most of our time here in the new architecture school, which has very few corners and 90 degrees angles! Only being surrounded by curvy spaces is exhilarating an you never know what’s around the corner!
You can choose from 10-12 studios focusing on various topics and themes every year. So this year, I decided to master light and shadows in studio architecture and daylight! We make lots of models, especially sketchy ones, testing and exploring light and shadows. We are assigned tasks varying from individual to group projects, giving you an opportunity to learn from each other.
At the present time, I have met an exchange students from ETH school in Switzerland, and we are doing a project together! It is always thrilling to hear how things are in other parts of the world.
The school of architecture provides an incredible wood workshop for students. It is not only well-equipped with machinery and tools, but the layout of the spaces and light coming from the courtyard creates an amazing atmosphere to work in! In the photo above, you can see the workshop is located one floor below the ground floor and has easy access through the descending staircase in the courtyard. Trust me; the magic happens down here!
Our studio space is sometimes transformed into a ‘performance place’ for presentations and discussions! We pin up our produced work on the white movable panels and discuss it all together. Artists and external architects from Stockholm are invited to participate in the presentations and express their points of view! The space becomes quite theatrical when students start moving the panels on wheels and change the whole set!
I am looking forward to seeing you around the open-plan architecture studios next year!
