Stine Dalager Nielsen Architect MA, MSc, PhD-fellow, Aarhus School of Architecture, Lab-03 Radical Sustainable Architecture Stine Dalager Nielsen, Architect MA, MSc, ARB, is a Danish architect and PhD-Fellow with the Aarhus School of Architecture. Before starting her PhD, she spent ten years in practice as a conservation architect in London, England, Copenhagen, Denmark and Tranquebar, India, with practices such as Avanti Architects (UK), Feilden & Mawson (UK) and Elgaard Architecture (DK). Projects include high-profile conservation projects in Whitehall and The Natural History Museum in London and transformation- and design schemes for the Jewish Museum in Denmark, the Roskilde Cathedral School and parts of the royal estates in Denmark.
Stine’s research interests and PhD regard a relational understanding of building as a practice and object. With this, the thesis argues that when referencing the growing relational thinking within sustainability discourse, sustainable building cannot be a question of quantifiable solutions and material results only but must also address intrinsic aspects of building – the connective tissue which interrelates the human, the material and the environmental into practice and structure, which have done so for centuries. Her thesis explores potential overlaps from the perspective of self-build practices in which anthropological methods form a practice-based view of sustainable architecture rather than focusing on fabric only.

The Unsustainable Practice – the oratorio of a house
Abstract / summary
Climate change, the global pandemic and ensuing political upheavals have laid bare systemic inequalities across the world. Kate Raworth’s Doughnut Economics suggests a socio-economic-environmental pathway to sustainability. Can site-specific examples offer lessons for education, research, professional practice, and policy that will encourage better Design for Resilient Communities? How could global initiatives, such as the SDGs help address regional disparities and specificities?
