Spring ends here

140506_ADSocialSP14_008

It took a while for the rain to stop, but when all of the Architecture and Design presentations were done, all students had had their time in the limelight, explaining their project to faculty and guests, all grades been turned in, the rain did stop and we all were able to gather in the beautiful courtyard of Skindergade to celebrate the end of the spring 2014 semester at DIS.

Free ice cream and beverages served by the awesome interns, academic awards handed out, speeches made and memories from a great semester shared.

I want to thank each and everyone of the 152 students for making Spring 2014 a fantastic semester. I want to thank each and everyone of the 27 faculty who taught in the AD Program this semester for their fantastic energy and dedication. I want to thank my awesome interns, Greta Rasmus, Dani Hill and John Welsh for a fantastic job all through this semester. And I want to thank my two assistant program directors, Eva Frederiksen and Ann Yust for fabulous teamwork and great collaboration.

I my view all students excelled this spring. But to celebrate students who not only did great in studio and made great presentations, but who also took active part in studio discussions, in the academics as such, and who contributed to making the study tours a great experience for everyone, DIS hands out Academic Awards, one in each of the four disciplines the AD Program has: architecture, interior architecture, urban design and graphic design. The recipients this semester are:

Architecture: Quinn Wilcox from University of Vermont

Urban Design: James Ross DeVault from Kansas State University

Interior Architecture: Haley Haugland from Pratt Institute

Graphic Design: David Ellis from Villanova University

DIS also sponsored a student competition for a color scheme for a new building DIS acquired in 2013, a building which will house new student residences as well as an architecture and design workshop. Three winners were chosen and currently the building committee is using the student designs in a dialogue with the Copenhagen Municipality about the renovation of the building.

Holmbladsgade 70B in its present state. New insulation will have to be put on the exterior of the building, and will constitute the 'background' for a potential new color scheme - the basis for the student competition.

  1. You caught me at a rare moment, it probably won’t ever happen again! Great pictures though and the social was awesome. Jeg kommer til at savne DIS næste år.

      Ryan, we will be missing you. Make sure you keep in touch. I am sure I will also find my way to SLO sometime near.
