Resumé

In August 2014, the structure and curriculum of KADK was re-organized. The bachelor study at the school of architecture is structured around six different subject fields, one for each semester: Settlement, Organisation, Materials, Aesthetics, Practices and Project.

Every semester starts with a transdisciplinary six-week course. The involved lecturers for each course are representing all institutes in terms of their daily research. Instead of only promoting their individual field of knowledge, the lecturers are now asked to contribute to an integrated ‘universe’ of knowledge. The ongoing discussion about how to educate for applied construction at an academy of fine arts is a central issue for this paper.

The course for 3th semester under the heading MATERIAL-assemblages, makes explorations and synthesis in models and material visualizations of building elements scale 1:1 and 1:10. The intention of the course is to examine the materials in their interaction as it unfolds in the building element. Materials interact not only with each other but also with the conditions they work under, thus the building element can be perceived as an assemblage. In order to be able to maneuver in such complex situations, it is essential to know how materials relate to each other.

The transdisciplinary platform might threaten the integrity of the research expert, but the interpretations of the assemblage-models seem to create coherence between otherwise isolated fields of knowledge.

The 6-week course MATERIAL-assemblages, unfolds a way to create research platforms and education in integrated design.
