Exhibition: Acquired Techniques II

11. December 2013 When: Wednesday 11th, 6.30 pm
Where: Mock-up, Aarhus School of Architecture
What: Collection of models, collages, drawings and beers

Workshop: Acquired Techniques II

- Unfolding spatial mechanisms

By forensic investigations of machines this workshop unfolds the spatial mechanisms
of the tools and techniques related to the architectural working process and methods.
The after-school workshop will focus upon architectural production as a conglomerate
of various analogue and digital methods, and provide the basics, the tips/tricks - and
how the tools themselves become operational for spatial/thematic investigations.
Eventually, this will become an interweaved spatial machine, exhibition and pamphlet
produced by the (by-)products of the trials and errors, tests and victories.

Tue 3/12: Machine Forensics as Spatial Potentials; Collage as an Operational Tool
Wed 4/12: Re-tracing Space; Exploring through Drawing
Thu 5/12: Emerging Stereotomic Spaces; Investigating through Casting (Model I)
Mon 9/12: Versatile Systems; Model as Three-dimensional Drawing (Model II)
Tue 10/12: Chronotopic Conditions; Photo Documentation and Camera as tool
Wed 11/12: Spatial Machine(s); Presentation lay-out and Exhibition

Arranged and conducted by Karianne Halse, Mika Friis, Espen Lunde Nielsen,
James Martin, Jakob Ingemansson, in collaboration with SpArk and
Aarhus School of Architecture.

Workshop: Drawing narratives

04. November 2013 Drawing Narratives of Sustainability
1 week workshop, Unit 1C, Aarhus School of Architecture.

Co-teacher. Arranged and conducted by Prof. CJ Lim,
(The Bartlett School of Architecture, London)

Excerpt from brief:
'For this workshop, through the techniques of photoshop, collage and hand-drawn,
students are encouraged to investigate the reinvestment of narrative form in architecture,
depicting cities from the text of Italo Calvino's 'Invisible Cities'.
Students will appropriate ideas, tropes and characters from pre-existing critical
thinking to propose sustainable architecture within the given narrative structure.
Speculative propositions allow us to question the way we experience and engage with
our urban environment, and definition of sustainability.'

Workshop: Aarhus Reconstructed

01. November 2013 - approaching spatial relations through photographic narration

One-week workshop,150 first year-students at Aarhus School of Architecture.
Led by Rikke Jørgensen, Laura Mazanti and Karianne Halse.

The city consists of a manifold of different layers – material and immaterial
accumulated over time, constantly shifting in an eternal state of flux. The city and
this constant process of transformation was the starting point of the workshop.

Through a series of operations – collage, drawing, positioning, spatial construction
two-dimensional photographic captures of the city was translated into a
three-dimensional spatial reconstruction of the Aarhus in 1:1 – carrying within itself the
traces of each of the steps.

The students were only provided with the operation for each day, encouraging an
intuitive approach and a receptiveness of the material. Continually challenging their
conception of the produced material, by asking not what the material was, but what it did.
Making it possible for unpredictable connections and spatial relations to occur.

At the given site, Mock-up, the students operated in three sub-groups, generating a
web of contextual connections, densified by structural entities and tale telling details.
Special care and attention was placed upon the positioning of the elements and how
the emerging relations became significant, emphasizing the entire field of the site and
not merely viewing the elements as independent objects. Working in Mock-up gave
a premise for the workshop to operate in an ever-changing context, incorporation whats
was there, reinforcing characteristics and negotiating initiatives. Allowing all of it to
become part of the process and the story it unfolded. Not unlike the city itself.

Workshop: Intermediate Vessels

14. September 2013 Start of KA-startup workshop for 200 candidate students at the AAA, led by Shin Egashira
renowned architect, artist and teacher from Architectural Association School of Architecture,
London alongside: Nat Mosley, Espen Lunde Nielsen, Anders Kruse and Karianne Halse.

The workshop takes its starting point in its physical site at Aarhus Havn. The harbour
has traditionally had a role of handling and exchanging goods, where a mobile
infrastructure of cranes and vessels facilitates the exchange between terrestrial
transport on train and trucks, and the transport by boat at sea. The harbour is also
associated with an immaterial exchange of stories from the sea and know-how of the world.

Today, the harbour is in a phase of transition where the industrial programs are
being relocated in order to make place for housing, education and commercial
programs. This development facilitates a new exchange of narratives and knowledge.
The workshop positions itself in the middle of this transition, proposing public facilities
– where found stories and structures is deployed, generating a physical living archive.

The students have investigated given elements from a 32 feet wooden boat through
drawing, followed by progressive deconstruction, cutting and fragmenting into a
taxonomy of parts. These components are together with narratives and press clippings
from the harbor and findings at site, triggers of the final construction of 26 vessels -
a total collection of related constructions functioning as urban furnitures or
inhabitable devices.

Awarded grant

19. April 2013 No38 louboutin schuhe are honoured and delighted to be awarded a grant from
Esther og Jep Finks Mindefond to explore the potentials of peripheral
Denmark and the terrain vague, through studies of the Rust Belt of the US,
serving as allegory and field of experimentation.

The grant was awarded at a ceremony at the Aarhus School of Architecture.


01. March 2013 Co-founds No38 - a shared platform and laboratory for research and
experimentation - with Espen Lunde Nielsen.

'No 38 is an old worn-out stairway in dark, varnished wood. It is the spatial
structure of events and spaces and the people inhabiting them. Its windows facing
all directions and rooms with kinks and notches. Its build-in furniture, old heaters
and the sound of the neighbors' loose floorboard. It is a physical and mental workshop.
It is the multidisciplinary collaboration between architects
Karianne Halse and Espen Lunde Nielsen.'

Workshop: Acquired Techniques

06. February 2013 Leading workshop, Acquired Techniques - a Leap into the Archive, at AAA
in collaboration with Espen Lunde Nielsen, James Martin and Mika K. Friis.
Following the footsteps of past travelers this is a journey into tools and techniques
of the architectural process. The after-school, cross-year workshop will focus upon
architectural production as a conglomerate of various analogue and digital methods,
and provide the basics, the tips/tricks - and how the tools themselves become operational
for spatial/thematic investigations. Eventually, this will become a city, exhibition and
pamphlet inhabited by the (by-)products of the trials and errors, tests and victories.
