RESEARCH AND EXPERIMENTS



ITINERANT PLATFORM

SCI-Arc











Itinerant Platform, a research and design workshop co-produced by students and faculty from three participating universities: SCI-Arc, Abaarso Tech University, and Copenhagen University.

Director of Itinerant Platform

Itinerant platform is a digital educational platform between architectural institutions in the Global South and North, combining research on housing from three continents and three distinct urban conditions in Los Angeles, Copenhagen, and the Horn of Africa. Workshop participants conducted collaborative research and engaged in a collective discourse and design process. This project is initiated by Emil Seehusen, in collaboration with SCI-Arc’s Research Department and partially funded by a grant from the W.M. Keck Foundation.

The ongoing research project explores new forms of planetary scale architectural collaborative research.

COMBINATORY DESIGN PROCESS’

Royal Danish Academy

Co-program and teaching responsible

The student-driven research project explores collaborative form generating processes through contingent forms and rules. Each of the three 'layers' operates semi-autonomously and is developed by three groups of students. The compositional configuration is built on simple rule-bound variations, construed through collaborative dialogues between student-researchers.







FIELD CONDITIONS

Royal Danish Academy,




Third year, module lead responsible for month long field exploration in Maputo, Mozambique

The informal city around the Mozambican capital Maputo has long outgrown in size and significance the older and colonial Portuguese port city it enshrouds. Operating on a different paradigm than its European appendix, the informal city is a study of new forms of urbanism.

The publication is the summation of collected data and conclusion to a one-month-long field study trip to Maputo, Mozambique, with students from the Royal Danish Academy. The research questions how such places can be represented while challenging conventional tropes of eurocentric representation forms.

The 21 students emerged in the city without any agenda. This was followed up by daily afternoons, in which student-researchers began to develop a drawing language amongst themselves. The dichotomy between notions of mapping and lived experience became both the issue at hand, as well as the proposed and developed methodology.
