This studio is a collaboration between Aarhus School of Architecture and GXN, the innovation unit of 3XN architects. The studio will focus on contemporary and traditional sustainable building praxis and investigate how contemporary science and theory, as well as the traditional materials and techniques can inform and enrich architectural design at any scale.

With inspiration from Cradle to Cradle and research into new materials and building technologies as well as regional traditions and considerations, the studio will develop a regenerative design methodology, where integration of material metabolisms, renewable energy, water purification, active climate and increased biodiversity are part of the architectural means and aims.

Learning from Nature The studio finds inspiration in the world of biomimicry and is focused on designing manmade ecosystems in the built environment. Furthermore the studio will investigate how well- known materials and techniques from vernacular regional architecture can affect the green architecture of tomorrow. The teaching will be based on parallel assignments and interdisciplinary knowledge from science in order to create innovative project specific solutions.

Teaching language: English and Danish
