An urban apartment building
MetadataShow full item record
For my diploma project I will make a proposal for an urban apartment building in the city of Oslo. The proposal will be a synopsis of my thoughts and built upon the values that I find the most important regarding life in the city and architecture. It is my understanding that the quality of life in a city context is closely related to the quality of architecture. It is the building’s presence that make up the character of our cities which in the end affects us and our everyday life. Therefore, the quality of the buildings; their façade, their identity and contribution to the city is something I believe need to be addressed with great importance. My diploma project builds upon my two main architectural interests: the plan for living and the role of the façade, in relation to the program urban apartments. I will explore issues within these two architectural tools, as well as look at how the façade and the floor plan relate to each other on equal terms.
