STUDIOKURS

INSTITUTT FOR ARKITEKTUR:

TAP Building in Landscape


The brief for the spring 2021 semester will be to design a small to medium sized project in a specific landscape. Some framework for the project will be given the students as objective constraints concerning site conditions and building function, however the work of the semester will begin with further development of individual design criteria through subjective investigations into landscape qualities and programmatic potential.

Architecture of Sports: Downhill


Play is an essential feature of humanity, and sport formalizes this play in a social space. This series of courses is an examination of the spatial and architectural features of sport. Sport is a central aspect of our society, as it has been for millennia. Both the ancient Egyptians and Greeks afforded a prominent place to sport, and throughout history, it has provided a space for both participation and spectatorship. From the most casual of games to the cutthroat world of professional sports, it provides its participants with excitement, confrontation, competition and personal challenge. For the spring 2021 semester, the topic is downhill skiing.

In Balance - Arctic Cycles


In Balance studio aims to equip the student with a knowledge platform where architecture is examined within a context of ecological sustainability. The studio’s main assignment spring 2021 is to design and build a community greenhouse in Vardø, a small coastal town on the Norwegian Arctic mainland. The design strategies applied will emerge from an understanding of natural cyclic systems that form and shape our physical environment. The studio will through three introductory sub-assignments investigate the relation between these systems and the architectural design approach. The learning outcome from the course should be applicable to other design tasks where a minimal climate footprint is part of the ambition.

Positions - Coexistence IV: LOVE


COEXISTENCE IV: LOVE is the fourth and final semester in Studio Position´s course series Coexistence. In the spring of 2021 the studio will continue the discussion on coexistence and how it can be investigated and materialised in architecture - architecture understood as both an autonomous structure and as a social space related to a particular site – fictional or real.

ACDL: computational design of an in situ restaurant


The assignment is to design a restaurant, approx. 600 m2, with outdoor areas and landscaping. Site: Hukodden, Oslo. The studio is project-based and the ACDL studio (advanced computational design laboratory) places a strong emphasis on computational tools as part of the design process and communication of ideas. The studio is not about the tools per se, rather about an experimental approach to architectural design, design processes and methodologies.Our ambition is to investigate fundamental architectural topics by means of analog and computational tools in an iterative way. This focus on process and methodology throughout the semester allows the analogue and digital to be considered together as part of a holistic approach. Therefore, all material produced by the students during the semester will be considered in the final evaluation.

INSTITUTT FOR URBANISME OG LANDSKAP:

Out of House - Nationalteatret- Staging temporalities, circularities and the city


A strategic building block of an emerging national identity, The National Theatre of Oslo  – also known as the home of Ibsen with the Enemy of State as its opening act – was already too small at its inauguration in 1899.  After discussions of expansion and upgrading since the 1930ies, governemntal support is finally in place and a feasability study on planning and programming is currently in process. The overdue rennovation and rebuilding is set to start in 2022. As a consequence; the National Theatre will soon be out of house in need of a temporary stage - estimated to last for 6 years or more. A period just long enough to question; at what point and to what degree can the temporary become the new permanent? The studio will use this pocket of opportunity to investiate the notions of temporality, circularity and the city.  This new theatre, its position and the public interior as idea and large scale project will be our area of study, experiments and architectural manifestation.

Make-Do: Water: Make-Do. Water-sensitive urban development within “Oslo Hydropolis”


Both modes of action – passive and active – require an aesthetic position along with the functional and performative imperatives. Make Water Do is finally a call for projects that support an environmental imagination in which urbanism and ecology are informing each other. In sum, the studio explores landscape-based, water-active urbanism within the Oslo Metropolitan Region. In face of climate change with its increasing risks of draught and flooding, and continuing urbanisation pressure the studio proposes blue-green infrastructure at the very basis of new low density settlements. It engages the functional requirements of adaptation to changing environmental conditions as much as the spatial and environmental aesthetics of flowing and cycling water as an agent of urbanism. The studio is thus an inquiry into future cultural landscapes beyond perceived city/countryside or culture/nature or planned/unplanned dichotomies, and how these contribute to an idea of dwelling within urban nature.

Feminism in Architecture


The course is divided in two parts. The first part is focused on critical discourse analysis. Through the study of poststructuralist discourses such as feminism, queer theory, post-colonial theory, disability studies and animal studies, traditional power-relations will be challenged.   The second part of the course is aimed at bringing the theoretical material to life, and actualizing it in relation to an architectural discourse. In this part, the students study fictional texts related to the topics studied in the first part.

INSTITUTT FOR URBANISME OG LANDSKAP:

Urban theory: Current theories in urbanism


The course focuses on current theories in urbanism, with a special emphasis on how to understand the contemporary city in terms of urban design, urban living and new technologies. The overall emphasis of the course will be to read and discuss a selection of texts that present new theoretical perspectives on the current urban condition.

Future urbanism: Planning for Autonomous Vehicles


The course is a part of ongoing invention and research processes concerning AV – automatic vehicles and mobility. Future low-carbon mobility systems will influence settlement structure, environment, and urban design with the promise to radically change the way we move in and around metro areas.The course links to the networks of the European research project PAV (Planning for autnonomous vehicles) that deals with challenges related to urban planning and design, and its possible spatial impacts. Professor Alan Berger from MIT has for years been working with spatial design and environmental impacts of AV. Professor Karl Otto Ellefsen is part of the PAV project. The course aim is to identify specific situations and establish alternative scenarios in discussion noth Norwegian partners and the network partners of PAV.  A municipality in peri-urban Oslo, will be chosen for case-studies and scenarios.

INSTITUTT FOR FORM, TEORI & HISTORIE: 

Speculative Ideation


The course adresses the capability of the student of architecture to think with and through drawing by hand. "Speculative Ideation" contains three main components: Individual study: The participants choose a subject to pursue through the period of the course. The subject to investigate and explore can be related to ongoing or earlier studio-courses, but this is not a requirement. Notes on intentions and reflections over past work in the course will accompany the practical work serving to clarify guidelines and the revision of these. Individual exercises: Intend to invigorate foundational skills and knowledge and introduce new ones. These exercises draw upon analytical and intuitive approaches familiar to art and architecture. Keywords: Materiality, gesture, composition and expression, formal analysis. Exercises in this year’s course will explore more thoroughly the principles and conventions of architectural representation in drawing and their potential in ideation. Talks & discussions: Talks and subsequent discussions intend to cover best practice within architecture and art.

Reversing Thresholds


The course attempts to redraw attention to thresholds that derive from relations and interrelations between built space and its natural surrounding environment. The course  consists of comprehensive reverse readings of  selected thresholds together with the reinterpretation and reconstruction through the learnings gained from the reverse readings. We will be working on various techniques from photography and drawing to model making and a well-crafted short descriptive text, as complementary to the scaled model, for the final review. The elective is organized around a set of analytical and critical readings. The readings consist of a selective number of texts from literature and theory of architecture that successfully capture the significance of the notion of threshold and transition. The analytical works include investigations on selected thresholds that span from critical analysis of an integral experience of the threshold to studies on the spatial and structural elements which constitute  it (i.e. materials’ properties, positions, and relations). Through the understanding gained, students will  investigate  the tectonics and atmosphere of that threshold through collage visualization and scaled models.

Re-store - Values


In a time when architects have to reorient towards the reuse of existing buildings, there is a pressing need to discuss the premises upon which the discipline operates. We need to rethink our methods, working techniques and terminology, and raise the question of how we evaluate our cultural heritage. This elective course on experimental preservation aims to interrogate the theoretical and conceptual frameworks used (historically and contemporarily) to approach the preservation and reuse of buildings, cities, and landscapes.

From the archives. The theory and history of Norwegian Architecture 1945–1980


Through archival studies, dissemination and exhibition curating, the course will provide a structure for understanding the development of Norwegian architecture in the post war period, when the Norwegian welfare state was constituted. A high building activity included numerous built and unrealized architectural ideas and projects, related to among other things, housing reforms that provided higher standards for most people, new typologies for agricultural and industrial development in rural districts, and the need of new institutional buildings locally throughout Norway as well as in the Global South, as part of the country´s aid agreements with newly liberated nations. Architects took, and were given important roles in a way in which is hard to find in earlier or later period. Based on existing research,  publications and new archival studies, the aim of the course is to unveil undiscovered or forgotten architects, projects or ideas of the period, and to add new layers of knowledge to its historiography.
