This master thesis is engaged in the transformation of a 1950’s transformer station in Copenhagen, renewed to accommodate living quarters for temporary settlements, and a public communal space.
The transformation incorporates theoretical discourses on both the topics of altering architecture, and structuralist tectonic ideals trying to encapsulate a framework of working towards adaptability and durability. The project investigates the reprogramming of the original building, with the implementation of two new structural components- each with their own temporal and adaptable character. These components facilitate and initiate the renewed life implemented in the building, while working towards enabling future alterations of a less irreversible character. This is fused with structural analysis using FEM software and with detail studies investigating assembly and functionality. The general building is upgraded towards meeting building regulation standards using the IDP methodology.
