Content

The course is an educational experiment project between the university and a technical college. The students produce the necessary architectural and construction drawings for a small (10-20 sq. m) wooden building and make a model of it. They participate in the course during the summer, completing it in September with an exhibition. Students from the technical college then take over the project and commence production in full-scale around November, competing the construction during the remaining autumn and spring terms.
The architectural students have the opportunity to monitor the construction and participate in the required construction meetings.

Literature
