Architecture and Design 

Teacher(s): Marietta Kolind

Lessons: 4/week

Architecture and Design is for the students, who want to be able to recognize and understand aesthetically, functional and sustainable architecture and design. Understanding architecture and design opens a world of experiences and this can be tools to a prosperous, healthy and sustainable culture.

Focus will be on architecture and design from Scandinavia in the 20th and 21st century. Students will learn about different phases of an architectural work, space planning, classical and new Danish furnituredesign, and the designers behind. Get insights in what makes a special atmosphere in a room and the geographical location of a building in relation to the use of light and colors. 

The subjects will draw parallels to their contemporaries, historically and culturally. We will try to understand the idea behind and relate to it, in the present we are in. We will work with different methods that promote abstract thinking and help to understand and decode:

  • Welfare Design / Design for the Common Good
  • Style history from the Vikings up till today
  • Space, form and flexibility.
  • Design that improves life (3. world)
  • Ways to build sustainable houses
  • Design in recyclable materials
  • UN’s 17 goals
  • Design by Hans Wegener, Casper Salto, Louise Campell, Kerstin Kongsted a.o.
  • Works by architects as Arne Jacobsen, Jørn Utzon, Lundgaard and Tranberg, Henning Larsen, Bjarke Ingels a.o.
