A path and a memory in & of the landscape and its change
Working with the topic of instability, ephemerality and impermanence in the fall of 2019 the design assignment finds place in Lønstrup, a small village on the west coast of Jutland. With constantly changing conditions we were to design a dedicated site for architects. A retreat for them where they live, work and deal with future challenges and changing environments.
Our physical conditions change, and scientific predictions tell us that the general climate emergency, is the most current future. As our global society goes on producing, selling and building, the aim is to point to materials that we do not have to reinvent, but to recapture in their basic qualities. Earth materials, as clay, bricks and minerals, can be implemented in our present building culture as well as make us capable of transforming and maintain old buildings, in a more logical way than seen in the last 60 years. This does not exclude new technologies or methods, but allow us to look back and get inspired, for moving forward.
