Translation From Image to Building
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
After the fire accident, KTH school of architecture is no longer in its best performance. The school indeed need an extension. However, through out this thesis project, I attempt to take one step further. It is not only to construct a functional school, but reconsider the meaning of architectural education. I am interested in three aspects, which all of them has being driving forces to this project. Firstly, I was interested in memory of the old architecture school in Stockholm, which was accommodated in a 19th centry wooden building. It was old and small, but students loved it. One’s memory of certain places would shape his thinking and values as an architect. Therefore, my design attempts to bring back such a memory by study some of the details in the old building and bring them back into the new extension with a twist. Secondly, in terms of working method I am very much resisted to ‘Graphic Architecture’, models always come together with rending images. They are offered to read side by side. The rending images are not trying to present the final products but also used as a development tool. Overall this project was developed from the inside towards the outside. The aim was to make an ordinary building with some thoughtful touches.
