Final project at DMJX: done

The view from Store Hus

I finished my studies at DMJX last week. My final project was a portrait of the suburbs west of Copenhagen called Vestegnen. The housing in the area was rapidly build in the latter part of the 20th century using newly accessible industrial building techniques and grand ideas about equality, rationalisation and “the modern welfare city”. The world has changed since the architects and city planners drew out the expansion of Copenhagen and today Vestegnen is not like they had anticipated, but still the inhabitants enjoy life there. The story is online here (text in Danish).

UPDATE, January 28th: The Project was awarded with the Scanpix Prize at the graduation ceremony from DMJX.
