Course information

Content and learning outcomes

Course contents *

Through deeper studies in different contemporary artistic disciplines (film, literature, dance, music, art) and discourses of immediate importance – the foundations of design theory and practise will be questioned and furthered. The students will study and use different artistic interdisciplinary tools and methods in order to develop architectural projects for a new Center for Art in Sandhamn; a beautifully located island in the archipelago some two hours by boat from Stockholm - or in Högdalen; a dynamic suburb 20 minutes south from the city center with many problems but with a big potential. What´s the function and meaning of an Art Space today? Who are running the Art Centers and for what different reasons? Important to discuss is how to relate to the existing nature, buildings and physical context.
