NORDNES MINI URBAN UTOPIAS_3rd year blog_fall 2012

The primary focus of the fall semester 2012 is on the urban conditions of the Nordnes peninsula in Bergen.

Delineated by concise periods of studies and activities, the semester permits a wide array of approaches, permitting the students to toggle between various aspects of urban, architectural, artistic and socio-logic positions, enabling a wide range of small-scale urban studies.

The semester includes a study trip to Barcelona, with special focus on urbanity of various scales and qualities, to act as didactic grounding and inspiration for the semester work.

The architectural approach aims for a finely tuned blend of APP, DAV, VS, TTA set to achieve genuine creative work-flows while testing neo open-form approaches.
