The school is facilitating an academic professional network that connects architectural practices with activities at the school. The network’s primary purpose is to provide a framework for the exchange of knowledge and to establish new types of partnerships within architecture, design and planning.
The network includes professionals from local practices as well as teachers and researchers from the school. It organises various types of events with the aim of discussing opportunities for cooperation and sharing professional challenges. The network is also used for discussing new educational programmes and activities, e.g. internships.
The network is open for all practicing architects, and you are most welcome to arrange an event or an OpenRoom meeting. If you want to register in the network, please send an email to Teaching Associate Professor, Anne Mette Boye.
The primary setting for knowledge exchange is the OpenRoom seminars, where particular subjects related to the field are discussed.
In 2016 PUF has hosted OpenRoom Lunch Sessions where a researcher presented her work at a practice for discussions in their lunch. Upcoming meetings will be advertised on the school website. This spring, Professor Thomas Bo Jensen gave a lecture on brickwork to CF Møller Architects, Professor Mogens Morgen lectured on modern danish architectural heritage for Friis & Moltke and Marco Poletto on bio-digital architecture for SHL architects.
Former sessions about technology, export, production, co-creation and workspace is being published in a book series. See the previous publications:
If you are interested in hosting an OpenRoom Lunch session please contact Anne Mette Boye.
The Bachelor Corps
Aarhus School of Architecture has a team of volunteer local practising architects, who are sometimes present for critiques and discussions on the Bachelor’s degree programme. This dialogue is to our mutual benefit and a source of inspiration. It also creates many valuable connections.
The initiative was inspired by recollections of how we enjoyed having external critics from architectural practice present at the school when we were students.
