Jul '09 - Oct '09
I hope everyone had a fun 4th! DIS definitely did - by the early evening a mass exodus to Øresund beach had begun in celebration of Independence Day. We wiled away the night playing ultimate frisbee, swimming, and chilling around these really cheap $4 disposable grills trying to cook hot dogs. I'm guessing there were 50+ DIS students who came and went throughout the night.
Here's an image of the beach [little_cuv].
In addition to those windmills, you could also see the Øresund bridge in the distance. It's a 5 mile span connecting Denmark to Sweden - it seems like a very impressive structure, and I've resolved to bike across it when I have a free weekend in Copenhagen.
Well, as far as school goes, I'll be working on a project involving Myyrmäki Church, done by Juha Leiviskä. The group assignment calls for a model that illustrates the building's character, attributes, concept, etc. Here's an image of the church interior - I think the most recognizable feature of the church are those hanging light fixtures.
But, anyways, from my research I've found that the church admits light in a variety of ways, creating a very dynamic menagerie of conditions throughout the day and seasons. Eventually DIS will be visiting the church, so I can't wait to see it firsthand!
I'll check back in before this weekend's study tour to Finland. Later!
