Et hus i Store KongensgadeSkrevet: 7. februar 2014
Af Elena Caroline Anker Wong, kandidatstuderende, Afd. 5:
In the historically dense Store Kongensgade in Copenhagen, this street remains bound by its strictly gridded layout and rococo facades, whilst the true secret of the city is found in the backyards of the city blocks.
The brief called for a residential/mixed use structure situated at a cornered site, to rejuvinate and lift the feel and experience of the area. My project aimed to create a transparency between the inner and outer world of these streets, and seek the irregular in regularity; to find a way to bring the backyard chaos in the ordered streetscape, and mould it into one entity.
The concept developed in the merging of the inner and outer space, there is a pattern that is trembling. Where the shell meets the torsoe, a new network of space is formed, where the ireggular melts into a new form of regularity; where the chaotic gains its order. The gap between the physical and the abstract is broken down where autonomy claims its role.
