I am learning a lot from Interior Architecture at DIS. Johan, my instructor, is very passionate about his work, and very open-minded when it comes to our projects. My studio is a blend of Pre-Interior Architecture students (most of which come from a studio art background in their home university) and Interior Architecture students (who come from an Interior Architecture program at their home university). I am an unique case where I come from neither; my program in the States is Environmental Design, where I have enough architectural knowledge to no longer be pre-interior, but where I have never really tackled an interior design assignment before. I really enjoyed this combined studio so far. While Johan doesn’t inherently lecture, he helps create a functioning studio environment where we can learn from each other. One major thing I’ve picked up on are sun diagrams. Our current project is the design of a subterranean portion near Frediks Bastion in Christianhavn. The path and accessibility to natural sunlight is increasingly important. I’ve learned by talking to my peers how to understand and use online sun diagrams by plugging in the latitude and longitude of the location in question.
