For the last three weeks, 1st year students have designed and built 78 unique building fragments for the workshop “House of Fragments” by BENANDSEBASTIAN.
The 78 different fragments will, when connected to each other in the end, form one single house – a “house of fragments”. Each fragment is associated with a particular body part, a person characteristic and is designed for a specific home or user of interest. Come and see the final result!
EXHIBITION STARTS FRIDAY 30/03/12 IN MOCKUP
As a part of a project called Waking the dead houses, 150 1. year students went on a study trip to Thy (West Jutland) to execute real life sections and light studies on empty abandoned houses, while documenting every step in the proces. This lead to an archive of photos, drawings and time-lapses, and here are shown some highlights from the students’ work.

Autotile is the physical result of a collaboration between Aarhus School of Architecture (First year 2011/2012 + Digital Experimentation) and Egernsund Tegl.
The students were through the assignment introduced to parametric design and the use of cellular automata – a matematic principle for selforganizing systems.
In the video above, the students has documented the building process through video and time-lapse. The soundtrack is developed together with René Middelhede, student at The Royal Academy of Music, Aarhus.
The A3-sheets below is the result of an individual assignment, were students with a given techinque and individual focuses represented the work.

The first assignment for the 1st year students was this year called (Re)Making. The students were working in groups, and each group was to design a piece of furniture with storage space for the studio. Each group was given a specific site, an existing piece of furniture and an existing object that together would be transformed, combined and re-designed to the new function and site.
After the design was completed, the students drew their new pieces of furniture in section and plan through analogue drawings. The final step was to scan the drawings, and digitally rework their drawings and layout an A3-sheet to present their furniture.
In the autumn, first year students created a new piece of temporary urban furniture – a brick wall on the Officerspladsen square between Ridehuset, Aros and Musikhuset. The brick wall was designed using the latest IT technology in cooperation with the new IT department of the school.
The opening ceremony took place during the Aarhus “Night of Culture” on 14 October. Autotile was sponsored by Egernsund Tegl.
