Using robots to create knowledge
At Aarhus School of Architecture, we are employing the latest robotics technology; our researchers use this technology to learn more about materials, develop new technologies, as well as for many other things.
At the Danish Science Festival, you can take a closer look at the many robots; robots which can, among other things, do concrete casting according to particular patterns, cut asymmetric pieces of wood along curves, or pulverize marble while following the veins of the material. The robot exhibition is organised by the school’s Research Lab 2 – Technology, Building Cultures and Habitation and is located in the school’s mock-up area.
History surrounds us
Does heritage have an impact on us as individuals? What is cultural heritage really and is there something unique that binds history and people together? Does it even make sense to talk about cultural heritage? – and can we discover a shared relationship through cultural heritage? #Fælleshistorie
At The Danish Science Festival, we will raise these questions; questions which are based on the research project Screening of Cultural Environments, which presents examples of areas of cultural and historical interest in Denmark through specific cases.
The exhibition, which is based on research reports, highlights three cases from the screening (a malt factory in Ebeltoft, Nakskov, and Frederiksø near Svendborg). These cases are presented and communicated visually in the library of Aarhus School of Architecture.
The exhibition on cultural environments has been organised by the school’s Research Lab 1 – Territories, Architecture, and Transformation and will be held in the school’s library.
Towards a sustainable future
No one dares predict the future anymore. We are too busy to actually think about it. This is the claim on which the exhibition presented by the school’s Research Lab 3 – Emerging Sustainable Architecture is based.
During a study trip to Cuba, students have collected several objects to start a discussion about a sustainable future. This is intended as a reverse time capsule that allows us to reflect on how we can improve the world of today. The many objects are presented along with texts explaining why the students believe precisely these things are important for the future. The exhibition is located in Laden Syd, at Aarhus School of Architecture
In the school’s canteen we will be showing a video by Anders Gammelgaard. It demonstrates how the atmosphere of architecture has changed over time.
We look forward to showing you many facets of doing research in architecture.
