A Fiction in Wood and Concrete

Abstract [en]

This thesis results in an architectural fiction, represented in a site-specific full scale installation, and a section drawing through the School of Architecture building and through the narrative. The possibilities of matter to inform architecture are explored: surface of material samples is captured and translated into form and structure, following the underlying material logic – the granular logic of concrete and the fibrous logic of wood. In contrast to a common practice of applying material to a previously designed form in architectural discourse, material is a protagonist in this architectural fiction. By introducing new elements into the recently built School of Architecture, architecture as context and impetus for fiction in various forms is questioned. The digital tools, such as 3D scanning and CNC milling, enable the narrative to become tangible and take part in the processes of translation.
