The Comprehensive Studio class from Roger Williams University taught by Roberto Viola Ochoa traveled to Copenhagen to get acquainted with the sites currently under study in the southern district of Sydhavnen. The visit allowed the students to become aware of the qualities of this emerging neighborhood with a very particular urban structure in which building, water and parks are in perfect balance.
The students also had the opportunity to visit different sectors in the city and develop a better understanding of how it grew and developed over time.
In addition, the group visited the church in Bagsvaerd by Utzon and the Mälmo Cemetery by Lewerentz, in Sweden. These visits were informative to generate discussion on questions related to ritual, procession, context, symbolism among others being studied in the current semester.
