SPACEPLATES PB43
SPACEPLATES PB43

  Prags Boulevard 43 is a remarkable initiative. It is located just south of Copenhagen City Center on a 6400 m2 site made available free of charge by the landowner Azko Nobel. Since 2010 the buildings have been filled with creative entrepreneurs, artists, musicians and many others, housing in total about 150 people and hosting […]

Underwater SPACEPLATES
Underwater SPACEPLATES

We are working on an underwater version of the SPACEPLATES project. Lloyd Godson, marine biologist and Australian Geographic Adventurer of the Year will live underwater in a self repairing underwater habitat on Queensland’s World Heritage-listed Great Barrier Reef to inspire young people to conserve Australia’s biodiversity, especially in the marine environment. The structure is designed by N55 and […]

Winter in Prag’s Garden
Winter in Prag's Garden

While at Prag’s Garden this morning to take photos for another job, I found the SPACEPLATES Greenhouse Prototype beautifully covered in ice.

Site-specific sound installation
Site-specific sound installation

The SPACEPLATES Greenhouse Prototype was used for a site-specific sound installation by Swedish artist Cecilia Jonsson at the LAK – Festival for Nordic Sound Art, at Prags Boulevard 43, 2012. The installation was called “A dome can be thought of as an arch, rotated around its central vertical axis”. Photo credits: Cecilia Jonsson and PB43

SPACEPLATES models
SPACEPLATES models

A collection of models done as part of our research for the SPACEPLATES building system. They are all examples of pure plates structures: structures where all loads are carried by plates only. They are made of white PVC and cut on our small CNC router.

Greenhouse at Prags Have
Greenhouse at Prags Have

The SPACEPLATES Greenhouse Prototype has been moved to Prags Have. Until a larger structure has been build, hopefully this summer, the prototype will serve as Prags Have’s greenhouse. Straps used for transportation has not been removed, but tomatoes and other plants have settled in.

In collaboration with N55, Jon Sørvin. The test assembly of the first module of the SPACEPLATES greenhouse. We have performed structural tests today (satisfactory). There is still a lot of work remaining, but we are very happy with this first large SPACEPLATES structure. If you have a chance, please come by Kulturfabrikken on Amager to […]

The SPACEPLATES greenhouse at the South Bristol Skills Academy in Bristol, UK, is in progress. Schematic design has been completed, and soon we will be building a full scale prototype here in Copenhagen

ONE CITY CAMPAIGN
ONE CITY CAMPAIGN

The land which is now occupied by single-family houses in the suburbia surrounding Copenhagen (and all Western cities) was once farming land for the production of food for the city. As the building of the suburbs pushed farming land further and further away from the city center, our food production has become increasingly industrialized. Today, […]

SHELTERS
SHELTERS

A project proposal recently developed in collaboration with Ion Sørvin, N55. SHELTERS is a low-cost, highly durable system that provides basic shelter for persons against rain, sun, cold and wind. SHELTERS can be placed both in cityscapes and landscapes and can be used by any person that needs a break from the weather conditions, needs […]

Sea Urchin Geometry
Sea Urchin Geometry

This tessellation technique mimics that of the sea urchin. It consists of evenly distributed, uniform hexagons, which decrease in size towards the poles. The animation suggests that a user could customize their own shell by choosing the resolution of the tessellation. It is part of our work toward a “Print your own house”-system for your […]

SPACEPLATES geometry
SPACEPLATES geometry

  Plate structures principally consists of hexagons joined along their edges without any supporting structure underneath. The resulting Y-shaped vertices between three hexagons meeting in any given joint result in an ideal distribution of forces along the edges of the structure. The hexagonated tesselation of a given doubly-curved surface can be based on a range […]

SPACEPLATES plywood prototype production
SPACEPLATES plywood prototype production

This prototype was developed in collaboration with Ion Sørvin and N55; the first full scale test of our SPACEPLATES building system. It was produced at The Danish Art Workshops in July-August 2010. 3D-software generated precise drawings and measurements for the cutting of 176 (15 different kinds) plywood pieces. We used the table saw at the […]
