Abstract [en]

In architecture, wood and concrete are often implemented as two separated materials with little interaction. With normal procedure, the concrete is harden before another material is attached to it. This project explores the possibilities of merging wood and concrete in unconventional ways. How can these materials interlace in a stage where they normally don’t? How does this effect the design?  

The initial research comprises study modells with several iterations on how these ideas can be implemented. The main idea is that both materials have the same value which enables them to share functions. For instans can a seat or an aperture be inserted in the concrete as well as in the wood - or in both materials simultaneous. By consequently using massive tree trunks the two materials obtain an equivalent expression which results in an ambiguous structure that raises the question whether it’s a concrete or wooden building. 

Concepts and qualities are applied on a underground structure for ceremonial events, also serving as a recovery space from the hectic every day life - an urban disconnection.

Abstract [sv]

Inom arkitektur används trä och betong oftast som två separerade material utan någon interaktion. I normala procedurer har betongen härdat när ett annat material fästs in i den. Det här projektet undersöker möjligheterna att kombinera trä och betong på okonventionella sätt. Hur kan materialen flätas samman och växa ihop i ett stadie då de vanligtvis inte gör det? Hur påverkar det designen?  

Den initiala studien innehåller en mängd materialtester som utforskar hur dessa idéer kan implementeras. Grundidén är att båda materialen har samma värde vilken medför att det kan dela funktioner. Till exempel kan en sittnisch placeras i både betongen eller i träet - eller i båda materialen samtidigt. Genom att konsekvent använda massiva trädstammar erhåller de två materialen likvärdiga uttryck vilket resulterar i en tvetydig struktur som lyfter frågan huruvida det är frågan om en betong- eller träbyggnad. Koncepten och kvalitéerna är applicerade på en underjordisk byggnad för ceremonier, men som också tjänar som en tillflyktsort från det hektiska vardagslivet - en urban frånkoppling.
