Parental leave projects

27.10.2018

I am currently partly on parental leave. Cocking, feeding, cleaning, changing diapers and pushing a trolley around town makes one calmer, cooler and happier. But it also have some more unexpected effects. This part time leave confirms a theory I’ve been pondering on for a while. When you perform monotonous no brain operations during longer time spans your brain starts working in the hidden and begins to solve problems and create ideas without you asking for it.  The brain is like a volcano, sooner or later it needs to  erupt.  Arriving at the office most puzzles are already laid, new Ideas has been born and the only thing left to do is to put things on paper. I might I actually get more done in a half work week than I usually do in a full one. So don’t be angry if I don’t answer the phone on a Monday or Tuesday when I call you back your project might already done in the hidden for free .

Another side effect of this leave is that when my son is sleeping for two hours a day, I can stroll around and tinker with things. Last week on the country side already resulted in two small animal like projects. The ”Windsurfing dragon wagon” and ”the pig looking spruce root”. The first one is a wagon for my windsurfing board built on a steel frame I found in the woods. The second is a project in the making, a root from a fallen spruce tree I debarked and sawed that right now looks like some kind of  wild boar. What will happen with the pig like root is not decided yet. The windsurfing wagon however has already been used for transporting my board towards windy shorelines. Even though it just took some hours to build it works great and looks cool so please enjoy my latest built project by clicking on the link below.

B-Sides

07.11.2016

We like to do projects that raises questions often found in the specific need of a client, site, situation or global issues that needs an architectural answer. The questions and how we answer them becomes the backbone of our architecture and the given stories when we present our projects. Although we often deal with multiple questions and answers we try to boil down our process into one narrative that explain the overall design concept. We take pride in being straight to the point and clear about why and how we do our architecture, not only for the sake of presentation but because we know it helps us develop our project further when we know the logic and aim of what we are designing. Although we like this way of communicating, the reduction of narratives do have its downsides. It often exclude fun detours, thrown away sketches, discussions, excursions, episodes, sly tricks, processes or ironic turns and background stories. Things that sometimes from an architects perspective can be even more interesting to hear about than the actual finished project story. These detours and side stories are hard to showcase and would just be confusing to include in our presentation of a new project. However they can be fun to read about in another forum. Therefore we added the feature B-Sides. The home of the less developed outcast cousins to the well-produced good prospect A-Sides. You will find this extra material at the end of some of our new published projects and future ones. As a premiere don’t miss the B-Side of ”Eldklot” a bonus track named ”Erectus Grande”  one of our best detours so far that transformed into its own parallel project, a project that frightened and gave hope to the citizens of a midsize Swedish town.
