Nordic Architecture (ARK079) has two main aims: first, to give a brief introduction to Nordic architecture. Second, to research Nordic qualities like site adaptation, space, light, and materiality, as well as social characteristics such as collectivity, flexibility, and critical praxis. Students worked in teams on a concrete analysis of one particular building through research, model making, and discussion in seminars.
The 2023 theme, NORDIC WOMEN, is a continutation of the theme from the year before. It engages six projects designed by women, individually or in collaboration with others, broadening our perspective by illuminating contributions from designers more likely to be hidden in the architectural canon.
