SPATIAL RELATIONS

An investigation of the spatial qualities in nature


A 3RD YEAR ASSIGNMENT AT THE ROYAL DANISH ACADEMY OF FINE ARTS

SEPTEMBER - OCTOBER 2012

This assignment was an introduction to the area of Amager Fælled in southern Copenhagen. This area was the site of all of the assignments on the third year at my department at The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts.
The project is an interpretation and staging of the spatial qualities in the area. The project is a course through a number of walls. The spaces defined by these walls, constantly change and contrast their predecessors.

The installation is placed in the borderlands of three types of nature: Field, path and bush. For that reason, the spatial characteristics of the installation match the surrounding nature’s features.
If a master plan of the area will eliminate the spatial compactions of the nature, this intervention will stand as a memorial of Amagerfælleds earlier spatial qualities. But the intervention might also be an indicator of how to plan a city.

This assignment led to the theme of a following assignment: A masterplan on the same part in Copenhagen. Later, the master plan became the site for a student dormitory, my concluding bachelor project.
