01 / Internship at COBE

 

This blog is dedicated to documenting my 6-month internship at COBE Architects in Copenhagen, Denmark starting in January 2017. The content of this blog will be a live account of my observations relating to design, culture and the Danish lifestyle. I plan to contribute an assortment of material to this blog, ranging from photography, mapping, hand sketches, diagraming, as well as experimenting with new mediums and graphic styles. The themes I hope to delve into are general urban design fundamentals, the attention made to integrating old and new, public space in changing seasonal conditions, climate change and alternative energy infrastructure, and the traditional craft of furniture making in Scandinavia. All of which are subject to change as I explore.

I will attempt to publish at least one post per week, work schedule permitting. I am looking forward to experimenting with content and different mediums to record my stay in Copenhagen and build a catalogue of Danish design and cultural references. I can be reached by email at connoririck@gmail.com while I am away.
