Manner & Method : observing Oslo’s Ambiguous, Modern Enigma
MetadataShow full item record
What will the Deichman be? Hold the speculation! Should not we be first asking the fundamental question: What is the Deichman? Observing is an act essential for piecing the present state into an intelligible frame of reference. However, the act of observing slides so instinctively into day-to-day life that it is easy to take for granted. Architectural sites are documented at the outset of a project, but how conscious are we of our manner and method of observation?To decipher the ambiguous, modern enigma –the Deichman Library building -this project prioritises primary observation as a means of (re)constructing its architectural portrait. This portrait seeks to shift the frame of reference for observing the Deichman and depicts its likeness through a series of discussions and studies.
