Barcelona, Ilulissat, Seoul, Aarhus, Wuhan, Randers, Kolding, Hunsfos, Ebeltoft, Nissum Fjord, Fredericia, Budalen, Frederiksberg, Thy, Hyttå, Detroit. These are just a few of the locations the new architects address in their final projects.
More than 80 graduating students have spent months scrutinizing and critically examining their graduation projects. Now, finally, the projects are presented to a broad audience in the curated AFGANG Exhibition Addressing Architecture.
Diverse and relevant projects
Through the investigation, comprehension and finally realisation of such diverse projects as a kindergarten made out of stamped moraine clay, a space for spiritual resilience in the city, a youth prison, integration and diversity, a critique of modern society, a new mosque, and empowerment of abandoned spaces in Detroit, the graduation projects demonstrate the ubiquitous relevance of architecture within today’s society.
The new architects
The new architects master innovative and sustainable thinking. They know how to cast, to run a robot, and do 3D prints. They know how to make a cool graphic design for a written critical reflection. And whether they express themselves through delicate hand drawings or hardcore digital tools – or use both to add personal and artistic style – the projects within this exhibition are of a liberating, visionary and ambitious character.
Despite living in an unbelievably tumultuous time, moments of turmoil often prompt creative minds to make extraordinary things. So, please welcome the new architects, still in the shaping, ready to address architecture.
The exhibition opens Friday 1 July after the graduation ceremony. The exhibition is closed during the rest of July, but reopen from 1 August – 16 September.
