Om emnet

This studio is closely linked to the practice of the office mopo ( www.mopo.no ) and our extensively experience in researching small scale housing transformations. The studio relates to AHO´s Re-Store series, with its focus on the history and possible futures of housing typologies from the mid 20th

century.

 

The most common dwelling in Norway is the detached house. Most of these houses are old but built for a long life span. However, the conditions of the dwellings very often do not match today´s use. Rather than demolishing these houses we need to investigate their origin, intension, and how they can be developed into a sustainable home for tomorrow.

 

People live in houses planned for a past generation, and many have an urgent need to make physical changes to their home. Our aim is to bring past typologies into our time without losing their inherent qualities.

 

Can an old house designed for people that lived a long time ago suit our contemporary lives?

How should this big building mass be altered, and can this housing mass be relevant for the future built environment? What is the historic value of these housing typologies?

Læringsutbytte

Knowledge of tools and methods on how to approach existing structures

Experience how to develop and formulate an individual architectural proposal

Understanding how to develop architectural drawings in detail

Gaining understanding of tectonic design

Knowledge of the theory and history of Norwegian housing typologies from the mid 19th century

Engaging in discussions on resources, qualities, and possibilities in rehabilitation projects

 

Praktisk organisering og arbeidsmåter

The studio is practice based, where developing projects in a detailed scale will be the focus. Projects will be developed through architectural drawings and models. Lectures and visits to building sites, transformation projects and relevant practitioners in the field will be arranged during the semester (according to any C-19-restrictions). The working tools used in the mopo practice will be part of the Course´s teaching method. The students will be assessed to «pass» or «not passed».
