Island Workshop

During the last summer weekend of 2022, our students participated in the ISLAND WORKSHOP on the Baltic Island of Rügen. An experiment on vernacular insulation techniques was organised by Studio Susanne Brorson & RISEBA FAD and was inspired by traditional "winter wrapping" from materials such as birch bark, seaweed or fern, and green summer vegetation.

Students got to weave, bind and tie knots to create original textiles for a building enclosure while getting inspired by lectures from artist Timo Pitkämö & architectural semiotician and urban sociologist Madli Maruste.
