46 architects graduated from Aarhus School of Architecture, the 29th of June 2012. A selection of the projects are displayed in the exhibition Hall, Noerreport 22, 8000 Aarhus C – Monday-Thursday 10:00 to 15:00; Friday. 10:00 to 14:00.
Studio Digital Tectonics has been working with the temporary and permanent aspects of the city of Aarhus. They have provided suggestions for how adaptive architecture can qualify the way we use the urban space and city plans.
More specifically, they have been carrying out projects in which the situation, special material properties and the possibilities provided by new production technologies create a background for interventions in the city, interventions which rethink and discover new potential in different everyday situations.
4 Studio Parable Architecture
Studio Parable Architecture has been working on developing methods of transformation which respect the existing areas and its qualities – based on the architectural intelligence of the location in question.
They have been working on developing Fiskerihavnen (the fishing port) and the projects are supposed to provide a contribution to the debate on the upcoming development of the area.

Studio Digital Tectonics has worked intensively over the past 2 weeks (more than 1800 Man Hours) designing, prototyping and even small scale testing to present a pavilion that was originally inspired by Gaudi’s Principles of Invertion. Based on a script designed in Processing by Dave Pilgram, we began a form finding interrogation of what we wanted to achieve. After which we used Rhino, a NURBS program, with the aid of scripting in the language of Python, in order to logically unroll; tag and modularise each element.
Thus began the process of: laser cutting, folding, casting in concrete, joints, scaffolding and building. Just to give you an idea of the pre-built testing, we did a 24 module test, 5 different joint mechanism test and 6 piece prototype. (more…)
