PROJECTS AT STUDIO OLAFUR ELIASSON
RESEARCH TEACHING PROJECT COURSES
Fredrik Skåtar has created a series of courses that stretch over one or two academic semesters. These follow his design philosophy of striving for a symbiosis between artistic expression, technology and function/application. Additionally, they aim for taking all scales into account.

Comments from students
TOWNHOUSE DESIGN
architecture project for bachelor and master students
LIGHT
exploring geometry, technology and materials for novel light ideas
OASIS
a course / project where one small scale engagement automatically brings about discussion about a larger scale. In order to revitalise a forgotten corner in the city, students create a catalyst which has a positive effect locally and city-wide.
ELEVATOR PITCH
mediating your idea fast and clear: This workshop teaches its participants how to assemble the best pieces of a project into a simple visual and verbal presentation, primarily using Photoshop and InDesign
It has been part of the curriculum at LTH School of architecture.
VIDEO TUTORIALS
- online repititions of workshop lectures
FORM WORKSHOP
a goal-oriented course designed to be given weekly, over one semester. The main focus is parametric design, integrating Grasshopper into the design process.
It has been part of the curriculum at LTH School of architecture and at the faculties of design and architecture in Dessau
AUTOMOTIVE
workshops on Grasshopper parametric design, custom-made for the automotive industry
Until now, it has been given at Hyundai and Volkswagen
FORM / TRANSFORM / TRANSCRIBE
a one week crash course on geometry and digital design (primarily using Rhinoceros). Students transform platonic solids into their own polyhedral design and finally put these into a context
It has been part of the curriculum at LTH School of Architecture, the Departments of Design and DIA in Dessau

WORKSHOPS
Fredrik Skåtar has created goal-oriented workshops that can be given weekly or as a crash course over 5 or 10 days. The main ambition is to integrate digital design methods into the participants' design processes.
