It was possible for Allette Lærke Marcel Hansen and Símun Louis Jacobsen to turn up and perform their final task as students of architecture. For Simon, in particular, the has been far from normal.
‘I was supposed to have attended my exam at ten past nine on 12 March; that is, the very day the lockdown of the School was imposed. The night before the exam I was then told it had been postponed. My boards and models had already been set up in the exam room. They have now been waiting for me for two months until I was finally able to graduate yesterday’, he explains.
His project was entirely finished when the lockdown was imposed. For which reason, he primarily spent the intervening period with his family, which includes his girlfriend and their two young children. They are both from the Faroe Islands and plan to return home at some point. But first Símun hopes he can get some experience working as an architect in Denmark.
