This semester's brief was to design a
multifunctional, public structure at Youngstorget, reflecting the ever-changing
needs of public space. It should support existing activities bringing them together
with additional proposed functions manifested as built architectural
structures. The projects should consider the wider context of public spaces and
urban fabric of Oslo, and importantly, contemplate the influence of space on
the experience of time passage and the importance of time for the subjective
experience of architecture.
The ACDL studio places a strong emphasis
on computational tools as part of the design process and communication of
ideas. Through an iterative process, students test and evaluate performative
aspects of designs in relation to changing spatial and functional demands.
Based on the focus of each design project, the students use a range of
computational, as well as analog, methods and tools.
The intention is to help students develop
their own design methodology, while bridging analog processes and digital
tools. Our aim is to equip the students with the knowledge, skills and tools to
achieve their architectural design.
