Department 5’s primary field of interest is habitation, building, and space. Habitation defined as the basic condition of human existence. Significant parameters constitute context, tradition-based values and potential, a conscientious relationship with resources, flexibility in relation to dynamics, mobility, and modern technology. This also includes a reinterpretation of potentials, as seen from a future architectonic perspective that simultaneously preserves and renews building culture.
Future requirements pertaining to flexibility in relation to dynamics, mobility, modern technology, and conscientious usage of resources are interpreted as seen from a general artistic overall view, forming the basis for proposals and visions.
The Department focuses on special competencies within the following fields of interest: Habitation, building design, and Nordic building tradition.
