A-building — take a look inside

For those who are preparing to come in August or just consider studies here, it might be useful to know a little about A-building.

It looks quite reserved from outside, like many other university buildings in Lund, but after a short look one discovers surprisingly cool interior spaces. After a year one can say for sure that it is a smartly organized structure — the right scale, nice ratio of public zones to more intimate ones and a masterful use of materials. People like spending time there, even home persons such as I.

Entrance hall. This is where most of the small exhibitions occur. Hanging out / gathering area. Sometimes presentations are held there and then you need to be quiet.

The big hall is actually a covered gap between the blocks. Bright and airy, it hosts bigger events like lectures, fairs and semester exhibitions. The staircase leads to an entresol, which is a continuation of the dining area connected to the kitchen on  the first floor. Normally the space is crowded, unlike in the pictures I show, these were taken when the summer break had already started.

Wood and metal workshop.

Computer lab. There are computers in this room as well as in the studios upstairs in case you don’t bring your own laptop. Most of the architectural software is installed.

Design studios. Each student has his own desk and a locker. End-of-term mess.

This atelier is equipped to work with plaster and clay but is also used in many other ways. Next door there is the paper workshop where we usually cut posters.

A-building is linked to the Design Centre. Mostly architecture students book 3d printers and laser cutters. Things are a bit more complicated with the rest of workshops — I would recommend to manage all the modelling stuff in advance, but this is a theme for one of my next blogs.

Looking forward to meeting you at school,                                                                     Tamara
