Simple volumes: - Spatial complexity

Abstract [en]

In this thesis project, I have explored ways to reach spatial complexity through the use of a simple system of volumetric building elements. The ambition has been to draw an apartment building with emphasis on a variety in the apartment layouts as well as to let the functions of circulation, which I define as both shared and private functions such as stairs, elevators and passages, become an integrated part of the architectural expression. The volumetric building element, with proportions derived from our infrastructural norms as it requires transformation on a truck, is today an ubiquitous object or even an architectural typology of its own. When they are assembled, it can both become a system of similar parts or one new, larger object. The project has then also been a search for an architectural ambivalence between hiding and exposing the fact that a building is the outcome of a system.
