SUNDAY 13 SEPTEMBER AT 13:15 – 14:45
Organiser: Anne Hagelskjær, Library and communications at Aarhus School of Architecture, DK.
At Aarhus School of Architecture the Library is an essential part of the overall fabrication environment. The library is seen as just as important for the education of the architects to-be as the wood workshop or the robot lab.
But how did we manage to integrate something as academically oriented as a research library into a school of architecture, where the weight quite often is put on other skills than the academic?
How did we manage to make these opposites attract?
First of all we established that the concept of “material” have many other connotations at our library than just written resources, and therefore we established MLAB in collaboration with the academic staff.
Second of all we got more involved in the academic environment at the school and learned when the library could be of value during specific courses.
And thirdly we recognized that academic studies come in all shapes and sizes, and that there is no such thing as a “correct” mode of library-use.
This break-out session offers you a guided tour of the library, MLAB and the fabrication labs at Aarhus School of Architecture. We will share the details on how we worked together with the scientific staff in creating a mutual understanding of the library’s tasks, and thus avoiding becoming an isolated academic island at a bustling creative school of architecture.
This is a break-out-session: this means that you will get out of Dokk1 and visit the Aarhus School of Architecture. It is a 10 minutes walk from Dokk1.
