Søren Nielsen has - with a team including architect PhD Majbrit Hirche and architect Katrine West – been granted DKK 360.000 for the project Edelfäule. Edelfäule is a phenomenon in German winemaking. It means 'noble rot' and is used to describe the fungus Botrytis cinerera's affection of the grape surface. The affection results in increased vaporisation from the ripe grapes and an amazingly concentrated taste.
The project investigates in scale 1:1 the aesthetics of building materials' surface changes over time. The experiments will be relatively playful, and yet we have a ulterior motives: We would like to demonstrate the difference between age and technical decay. If architects can learn how to control and plan for weathering, tear, and invasion from the biosphere, age might become a value – provided that its beauty is recognised. Through that a large amount of toxic surface treatment and costly maintenance operations might become redundant.
The project is deeply indebted to the creative explosion of the New Nordic Kitchen. Hopefully it will enable us, on request, to serve technically perfect architectural dishes as in the menu example below:
- Cultivated surface mold on fir boards used for patterning and black dying by means of fermentation of leaves.
- Nervous larch-laminate generated by enforced wrenching of knotless larch strips by repeated moisturising and drying. Assembled into a mechanical laminate by means of dowels.
- Shag, silvery, wooden cladding of spruce, scratched and sandblast.
- Curtain-like shingles of deep-cracked, dried-out boards clamped in larch profile with ondulated steel strips.
- Fluted wood cladding made of sandblast, fast-growing, radial cut fir planks, smeared with falu-sludge. Mounted horizontally for stimulating algae growth in the troughs.
- Burst concrete, red and rough, made by iron filings strewn in the form and exposed to acidic water and numerous freezing and thawing.
- Concrete with mask painted algae-graffiti in red-green sodium-potassium palette, enhanced by smearing with manure.
- Concrete panel with forced weathering by means of gutter muck. Stripes of rust and cleansing water.
- Concrete panel with granite aggregate and surface vegetation of lichen grafted from fieldstones.

in the evaluation special attention has been given to the teams’ technical capacity and experiences with planning of buildings and recreational areas for people with special needs and development of social senior and daycare housing. In that regard vandkunsten has fresh experiences from both gyldenrisparken and diakonissestifelsen.

vandkunsten wins green establishments on bornholm
vandkunsten win hjortegården
vandkunsten has, with team members wissenberg, møllen and kuben management, won the competition for the transformation of hjortegården in herlev, a suburb to copenhagen.
our proposal aims at providing a green identity - in a quite literary sense - by an unusually strong integration of building and landscape.
we suggest a reorganization of the open common space in such a way that an intensive plantation of facades, roofs and front yards can be financed through privatisation and extensive maintenance of the open area.
we are looking forward to develop the project further in collaboration with the residents of hjortegården!

2012 in exhibitions: vandkunsten in MOMA, louisiana and the venice biennale.
2012 was a great year for exhibitions.
vandkunsten's cohousing communities travelled to MOMA in new york, while our cohousing project for handicapped youths was invited to the louisiana museum of modern art.
at the biennale in venice, we showed our proposal for a new arctic building practise, a project which has since moved to greenland, and which is now generating all the debate we had hoped for.
thank you to all involved from vandkunsten!
vandkunsten project honoured in karlsruhe, germany
vandkunsten's housing scheme in kirchfeld, karlsruhe, has been honoured by the architektenkammer baden württemberg.
the 56 units form a 'siedlund', itself one of six such groups that make up the masterplan for the former kirchfeld barracks. the masterplan was developed by vandkunsten after a competition win in 2003.
the project was honoured for its careful articulation of the transition between public and private, between the neighbourhood and the individual house, and for the consistent plans that create great spatial qualities in relatively small flats and houses.

vandkunsten wins the competition Viborg Baneby
'Hærvejspladsen' - a new bridge constructed like a town square - will create a connection across the railway. A green academy form the motivation in the quarters sustainable development. A water culture house as meeting spot by Søndersø. This is some of the proposals that will develop Viborg into a livning, ground-breaking and sustainable town.
The project's main idea is two new axis consisting of the urban Hærvejssti and the green and recreative Søndersøsti, that has to bind together the town area and connect it with the historic town centre, the surrounding landscape and Søndersø.
- Viborg both has a dynamic business community and is a large service provider. At the same time there is a nearness to scenic surroundings and an attractive historic urban environment. The winning team has in the best possible way been able to transform these qualities and the railway area's special potentials into a visionary masterplan for the quarter. I'm convinced that we, based on this plan, can make Viborg Baneby a fantastic place to live and into an asset for the entire Viborg Municipality, says the Mayor of Viborg Søren Pape Poulsen, who is the chairman of the jury.
project manager Karen Skou, Realdania, praises the winning proposal and expects that the project in Viborg will be in other town's favour.
- The proposal is inventive and has a fine balance between the visionary and the realisable. With a strong main idea the proposal succeed in creating convincing connections between Viborg Baneby and the surrounding town. Also the winning proposal's bet on how the plan can be realisable can be of great use and inspiration in the further work with the town development - both for Viborg and other municipalities working with development of similar areas, says Karen Skou.
the proposal is designed by Tegnestuen Vandkunsten, RUM, Tyréns AB, Professor Claus Bech Danielsen, SUBTURB, Lise Gamst and Sadolin & Albæk.
four teams participated in the competition about Viborg Baneby.
the winning proposal has to be developed further, and make up a masterplan for the area and form the basis of the municipality- and district planning.
the town development project is supported by Realdania and Viborg Munipality with eachr 2,1 mio. kr.

"Buildings that care about the living.."
In the March issue of the Swedish magazine ARKITEKTUR, Thomas Lauri comments on Vandkunsten's houses in Laröd, north of Helsingborg:
”...the atrium houses 'Laröd Hage' in Helsingborg by Danish architects Vandkunsten are in many ways its opposite. There is no doubt that empathy is the most important thing. The houses are found at the brink of the development, right where the edge of town turns into nature. The architecture starts off somewhat restrained along the narrow access street, leads you inward through a courtyard and a centrally placed kitchen and then abruptly lets nature wash through large window openings. It is a sensitive reading of the site and its conditions.
With their bag-washed, yellow brick facades, the houses provide a tactile experience and have impressive details. No sloppiness. You are taken care of. In a psychologically intricate way. It is as if the dwelling reads you. Observes you. It could have been eerily controlled, but it isn’t, on the contrary. The residents have already begun to arrange their courtyards in different ways. It looks as if they care. I understand them. The houses care about them.”
