This master thesis acts as a response and comment on today’s urban development, being an effect of the prosperous city - the welfare city’s success.

The thesis focuses on the transformation of Frederiksberg Hospital, seen as an opportunity to create a link between past and future, while turning towards a more social approach. As such the thesis seek to acknowledge architecture’s effect on its surrounding, using an approach of sustainable-tectonics to catalyse social relations and a sharing of resources.

Presenting a new typology, a place of (ex)change house people with other resources than wealth, staying temporarily, while being able to exchange resources with other inhabitants and the city of Frederiksberg. Through this, along with compact communal housing adds to inhabitant’s self-awareness, allowing these to be re-introduced to society and the city.
