  1. 1. “Typically architects are more aware of the differences that seperatethem, giving their work an aura of novelty and originality. This leavesbehind the common references and goals that contribute to the long-term relevance of their work.” Dalibor Vesely in Architecture in the Age of Divided Representation, 2004Common GroundA Tributarium for Danish Rowing at Islands Brygge SydAssignment 3Faculty: Henning Thomsen
  2. 2. DIS Architecture + Design Fall 2012Assignment 3: A Tributarium for Danish Rowing The Theme “Can single buildings contribute to the formation of common ground?” Thus begins David Leatherbarrows contribution to David Chipperfields critical reader, Common Ground, that was prepared for this years Venice Architecture Biennale - which incidentally Chipperfield is curating. This will be the theme for the third assignment. The theme is also the theme David Chipperfield chose for the Biennale. About it he says: “I chose this theme in order to question the priorities that seem to dominate our time, priorities that focus on the individual, on privilege, on the spectacular and the special. These priorities seem to overlook the normal, the social, the common. I was concerned to encourage a more critical examination of what we share, with the awareness of what seperates us and how we are all unique. To consider our common influences, concerns and visions may help us better understand the discipline of architecture and its relation to society.”Islands Brygge Syd - the site The Commission In 2012 The Danish Rowing Federation celebrates its 125th years anniversary. Denmark has a strong tradition for rowing and has won many medals in international championships as well as in the Olympics, beginning with the first medal in London Olympics in 1912. To mark the ocassion, it has been decided to build a ‘Tributarium’ for Danish rowing. A ‘Tributarium’ is a place to study, enjoy and pay tribute to the strong rowing tradition as well as to raise the interest in rowing in general to keep the tradition alive. The building will house a collection of important rowing paraphernalia as well as more contemporary forms of interactive and digital media supported exhibitions. The Municipality has granted the Rowing Federation acces to the site on the condition, that the Tributarium will also work as an urban attractor for the new development in the area in general. Thus the Tributarium must be thought of as an inviting and inspiring place in this part of the city, a destination and a place to go to and a place where people should also be given the opportunity to hang out without necessarily going through the exhibitions.Islands Brygge Syd - the site The Area Islands Brygge is a neighborhood situated at the north-westerly part of the island of Amager. Bryggen, as it is also often referred to, was created by landfills carried out in the 1880s. The landfills were carried out to create a harbourfront and piers on which new industries were located, most prominently the Danish Soya-bean cake factory. This factory exploded on July 15 1980, killing 23 people. This was the beginning of the end for the industrial areas on Islands brygge. Since then the harbour front has been transformed from industry to residential and recreational use. Islands Brygge Havnepark (Harbour Park) featuring the harbour bath by Plot/BIG and the citizen lead park development, have transformed this area to a higly attractive location in the city. New developments further to the west are the next step. The area is very close to Amager Fælled, the green commons situated to the south - an expansive recreational area with paths for walking, running and cycling. The Plot The Danish Rowing Federation has acquired a plot in the southern harbour of Copenhagen, just across from Denmarks oldest rowing club, Copenhagen Rowing Club, established in 1866. The site is called Islands Brygge Syd and there is a local plan for the area, that stipulates a mix of residential, cultural and commercial activities. A masterplan has been created for the area that suggests a new artificial creek in connection with the existing harbour. The creek works as the divider between the two different areas in the masterplan, one being the continuation of the block/courtyard structure to the north, the other being the more free layout of towers, rowhouses and individual buildings to the south. Currently there are ideas to have two connections across the new creek, one a path and bridge to the front at the very edge of the harbour, and the other, a road and bridge that will connect to the existing Islands Brygge road. The site itself is on the southern part towards the harbour front as indicated on the drawing to the left.Islands Brygge Syd - proposed masterplan
