ESTAR Aarhus Boathouse

Aarhus Boathouse

Over the last three weeks of May we have been building a boathouse with the students of the Aarhus School of Architecture as part of the workshop run by Stefano CONSTRUCTING ARCHITECTURE. The boathouse utilises the same standard materials commonly used in Aarhus harbour for these kind of structures: cement and steel for the reinforced concrete footings, 45 x 95 mm softwood studs for the pinned timber frame, and PVC woven tarpaulin tensioned with 8mm black rope. The structure will be installed in Studsgade courtyard until the end of the month when it will be disassembled and reassembled in Aarhus wood boat harbour to be utilised by the local boating community.
