Practical Information
  • DIS Architecture + Design Summer 2014 6 Study Tour Objectives The study tours of the Architecture and Design Program at DIS form an integral part of the learning process. We go to places to learn through experience and through analysis. We go to places to understand and ultimately, to become better architects and designers. In the semester programs and in the summer sessions, we aim to prepare students for their study tour by carrying out a cross- disciplinary group assignment prior to departure. This assignment deals with an academic analysis (research/study) and a physical analysis (making of a model). The academic analysis takes its cue from a model of interpretation, developed by Danish architectural scholar, Erik Nygaard. It describes four ways into the work of architecture, one based on the conception, one based on the form and a formal study, one based on the reception of the work, and finally one based on the broader socio-economic determinants surrounding the former three. The students get introduced to the model in a lecture before the assignment commences. The second part, the making of physical models, is a classic architectural and design based way of understanding works of architecture and design. It gives students direct and three- dimensional insight into the formal aspects of the work, allowing them to understand materiality, light, massing, scale, etc. Furthermore, the use of the sketchbook/journal – the very classical way in which architects throughout centuries have kept track of their experiences and learning – is something we aim to maintain an understanding of among the students. We have the so-called journal courses, which gives students access to ways in which to sketch, note down, and annotate experiences and learning drawn from the study of buildings and places. And we have introductions to journal taking for those students that chose not to enroll in an actual journal course. As such all AD students
  • DIS Architecture + Design Summer 2014 7 Study Tour Objectives get exposed, in one way or another, to the very important element of visual note taking. On the study tours we have built in sessions, where students and tour leaders look at the developing sketchbooks, to both share and learn from each other. The IEC study tour is intended to give a small taste of all of this. We will focus on the journal and sketching elements, and provide the participants with an introduction to journal taking as well as encouraging participants to maintain a journal on the tour. The tour ends with a journal sharing and wrap up session – elements that always form part of the final part of any AD study tour. The Grand Tour was the study tour of the 18th and 19th centuries. Artist visited important cities and sites in Europe to study, learn, and socialize. Here it is a classic Danish painting, by Constantin Hansen, of Danish artists gathered in Rome in 1837. Most are painters, but the man wearing the red fez is architect Gottlieb Bindesbøll, who among other buildings made the Thorvaldsen Museum in central Copenhagen. The Painting hangs in Statens Museum for Kunst in Copenhagen.

  • DIS Architecture + Design Summer 2014 11 The Trelleborg in Slagelse is one of 6 Viking ring fortifications in Denmark and Southern Sweden. The site was excavated from 1934 to 1942, and older datings put the fortifications near the year 1000. The Trelleborg was designed as an exact circle with two roads that crossed at right angles in the center and led to the four gates. Each of the four quarters housed almost identical longhouses arranged in a square. The fortress accommodated 1,300 people. Trelleborg Trelleborg Allé 4, 4200 Slagelse 1000 AD
  • DIS Architecture + Design Summer 2014 12 Just as notable as the collections of modern art and furniture within, is the building that houses them. The wall acts as a datum from which the spaces unfold. The landscape is read though the wall and the attached corridor, leading the spectator from the narrow entrance to the cafe opening onto the view and the fjord. Sketch focus: integration of building with landscape and terrain, building and site sections, strategies for day lighting interior space, modularity in building elements.

Of particular note is the exposure of cultural layers including the contemporary, and sometimes symbolic, reference to parts of the building as it was. Sketch focus: adaptation of historical fabric, style and technique in contemporary and medieval material detailing.

Three wooden churches were on the site originally, the first of which was built by Harold Bluetooth when he erected the second Jelling Stone and buried his father, King Gorm, under the church floor. After a series of fires, demolitions and additions, the church stands as it is today. Sketch focus: find and note the location of larger, older brick; in section, depict the proportion of the spaces.
  • DIS Architecture + Design Summer 2014 19 Jelling Burial Mounds The Jelling burial mounds and one of the runic stones are striking examples of pagan Nordic culture, while the other runic stone and the church illustrate the Christianization of the Danish people towards the middle of the 10th century. Located in central Jutland, Jelling was a royal monument during the reigns of Gorm, and his son Harald Bluetooth, in the 10th century, and may possibly pre-date this era. The complex consists of two flat-topped mounds, 70 metres in diameter and up to 11 metres high, which are almost identical in shape and size and construction, being built of turf, carefully stacked in even layers, with the grass side facing downwards.
  • DIS Architecture + Design Summer 2014 20 Aarhus Rådhus 1(2) Rådhuspladsen 2, Aarhus Arne Jacobsen, Erik Møller 1937-42 The Aarhus Rådhus is one of the most important pieces of modernist architecture in Scandinavia. The original furniture was designed by Hans Jørgen Wegner. The original design did not include the now iconic tower: Jacobsen reluctantly worked this into the coherent functionalistic composition. Sketch focus: modularity and adaptability of interior spaces, movement of people in section, day lighting strategies, materiality and architectural detailing, function within the urban fabric.

  • DIS Architecture + Design Summer 2014 22 ARoS Museum Aros Allé 2, Aarhus Schmidt, Hammer & Lassen 2004 The largest art museum in the Nordic countries, this museum’s form was inspired by Dante’s Inferno, with hell in the basement swirling through the building to heaven on the roof. The building takes up a regular city block and incorporates a central ‘street.’ The design accommodates people’s need for natural light while keeping pieces of art from its harmful effects. Sketch focus: in diagrammatic section, depict interior-exterior and private-public space, approaches to daylight and artificial light.
  • DIS Architecture + Design Summer 2014 23 Århus Å Aarhus Aarhus City Architect, Ole Østergaard 1994 Aarhus creek was the waterway that led to the location of the city of Aarhus in 900 AD. During the Industrial Revolution, the creek became an infrastructural obstruction and in 1930 it was piped and a road took its place. In the 1990s, the need for urban recreation spaces led to the reopening of the creek. Sketch focus: site section of the creek as an urban feature, social space, include the relationship of bridges, steps, and water.

  • DIS Architecture + Design Summer 2014 26 Møntergården 1(2) Møntestræde 1, 5000 Odense C, Denmark Architects (2013) : Frank Maali og Gemma Lalanda The old Møntergård building is one of the finest Renaissance properties in the city of Odense. It was built in 1646 by the nobleman Falk Gøye. The building itself is a two-storey half-timbered house with carved rosettes facing Overgade and Møntestræde. The walls are brickpainted as bricks were considered superior to halftimbering. The roof is covered with handmade tiles. Inspired by the city’s original structure the buildings are shaped as two clusters of longhouses. Their scale and offset location in harmony with the area’s historic buildings. The building’s load-bearing structure of dark steel columns and steel beams with masses of golden brick is a reinterpretation of the Coins farm’s old half-timbered buildings. w The new museum houses a permanent exhibition on the history of Funen. It is a richly choreographed exhibition. The spaces and all surfaces are in use in a sensuous, historical exhibition. Sketch focus: Relations between old and new buildings. Relation between exterior volumes and interior spaces. Graphics in the exhibition.

  • DIS Architecture + Design Summer 2014 28 While travelling through the Danish landscape there are several features to notice which tell a great deal about the history of the country. These features are both natural and man-made and can be described chronologically. The basic contours of the Danish landscape were shaped at the end of the Pleistocene Epoch (i.e., about 2,600,000 to 11,700 years ago) by the so-called Weichsel glaciation. This great glacial mass withdrew temporarily during several warmer interstadial periods, but it repeatedly returned to cover the land until it retreated to the Arctic north for the last time about 10,000 years ago. As a result, the barren layers of chalk and limestone that earlier constituted the land surface acquired a covering of soil that built up as the Weichsel retreated, forming low, hilly, and generally fertile moraines that diversify the otherwise flat landscape. Large mounds are prominent features in the landscape across all of Denmark. They are typically man-made burial mounds dating from the Nordic Bronze Age (1800-600 BC). Over 50,000 of these dome-shaped barrows have been found in Denmark. They are typically located along historic military routes and are placed high in the landscape so as to be visible from great distances. The mounds contain burial chambers in various sizes and configurations depending upon the time period and prominence of the chieftain who was originally buried in the mound. These mounds have all been excavated and valuable archaeological finds have been made despite the loss of many of the contents to theft over time. Another prominent and consistent feature in the landscape is the medieval church. Denmark was proclaimed a Christian country by King Harald Bluetooth towards the end of the 10th century. The first Danish stone church was built in Roskilde in 1040. Between 1100 and 1250 alone 1700-1800 churches were built. Many of these buildings still exist today, albeit added to and altered many times. The church was the central element of a village thus visibly marking the presence of the community within the landscape. The most characteristic element of these buildings is the bell tower with its crow-stepped gables with blank windows. These towers were typically added to the churches during the Gothic period of architecture in Denmark. Denmark: Cultural Landscapes 1(2)
  • DIS Architecture + Design Summer 2014 29 The land reform of 1789 is an event which had a tremendous effect on the Danish landscape. Up until this time the settlement pattern had been based on the village as the center, with fields radiating out from it. These fields were further divided over time so that farmers often had several unconnected plots to farm. The abolishment of serfdom in 1788 opened the way for the Reform of 1789 which redistributed the land into more cohesive plots. This meant that many farmers moved out of the villages into the characteristic, four-winged farm houses which were ‘free- standing’ in the landscape. Where before the landscape had been dominated by wide, unpopulated plains with meadows, fields and woods, the land was now covered by farms demarcated by hedges and dykes undulating through the landscape. This is the pattern still evident today, though with the addition of modern highways and railways. Another prominent feature in the landscape is the extensive amount of reclaimed land. This is evident through the many dikes and wind mills used to drain the land. There were approximately 2500 wind mills in Denmark by 1900 which were used for pumping and milling. In the 1890s a Danish scientist, Poul la Cour, constructed wind turbines to generate electricity, which was then used to produce hydrogen for experiments and light and the Askov Highschool. His last windmill of 1896 later became the local powerplant of the village of Askov. Denmark has remained at the forefront of the development of commercial wind power for electricity and in many places the landscape and the sea are dominated by large wind mill farms. The modern Danish landscape is distinct in that every square centimeter is planned. This is a combination of historical and contemporary planning. The landscape can be considered as ‘designed’ as any Danish modern piece of furniture from the 1950’s. Denmark: Cultural Landscapes 2(2)

  • DIS Architecture + Design Summer 2014 37 Guide to Visual Note-Taking The following categories are broad and you need to consider which apply in the case of each location you analyze. For each location choose 4-5 categories to focus, and touch briefly upon the remaining categories. All drawing types are suggestions and must be supplemented by written notes. Site: illustration that captures the essence of site and surroundings. Use drawings such as: plans, section of open space around the building, or quick serial visions. Concept: conceptual drawing that illustrates the main idea. Use drawings such as: diagrams in plan, section, elevation, axon. Context: illustration of what surrounds the building and possibly how this has influenced the design. Use drawings such as: sketches of details, concepts of surroundings, quick diagrammatic perspectives (serial vision), plan. Sequence: description of the sequence of space that the user of the building experiences. Use drawings such as: diagrammatic axon, quick diagrammatic perspectives (serial vision). Structure: conceptual drawing showing the structural main idea. Do any of the structural choices relate back to the context? Use drawings such as: diagrammatic plans, sections, exploded axon, detail sketches. Space: description of the main spatial quality of the building. Use drawings such as: sections, perspectives. Skin: description of the skin of the project. How has the surrounding context influenced the choice of material of the facades? Use drawings such as: details shown in section, axon, sketch perspectives. Detail: Description of how building components/ materials are put together. Use drawings such as: axon of detail, section, plan. Material: Various materials can be used to differentiate or define an idea graphically. Document how different materials can influence ones visual understanding of a space. What you hear you forget What you see you remember What you draw you understand

  • DIS Architecture + Design Summer 2014 39 cuttouseasviewfinder To use a viewfinder 1. Cut out the square 2. Look through the viewfinder. Note what you can see at each of the corners. Flick your eyes from corner to corner and look carefully, so that when you take the viewfinder down, you can still see the parameter of the image that you will be working on in your mind’s eye. 3. Roughly draw the same proportions as the aperture of the viewfinder on your sketchbook paper. 4. Divide the space into quarters. Quarter it vertically and horizontally, so that it is split in half both ways. This breaks down the complexity of the image that is in front of you into four smaller elements that are going to be easier to control. 5. Draw with ease!
