Heidi Svenningsen Kajita, The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts School of Architecture, on "Fragile Possibilities in the Big Plans."
Date: 5 February 2014
Balconies, extensive and robust asphalt surfaces, ground floor flat windows and toilets, sand, back and front gardens, occupied basement air-raid shelters, doors - these are some of the material and spatial dimensions that residents appreciate and care for in three Scandinavian Post-War modernist housing estates.
Revolving around such details, this lecture explores architectural strategies and theories of fragility that may contribute to the redevelopment of big plans by motivating engagement with place and change over time.
