Mathias Dührkop

Copenhagen, DK



I am 29 years old and have received my M.Arch from The Royal Academy of Fine Arts Architecture in Copenhagen, Denmark. During my three years long master I have been enrolled at the department for Culture Heritage, Transformation and Restoration.
During my master I also completed a semester at UNIFE, facolta di Architettura in Ferrara, Italy.
My educational background means that I have great insight in construction, history and phenomenology.
My working method consist of working in 3 scales, landscape, still life, portrait (context, object and detail)
this method helps one get a insight in all the building aspects.
I believe in making research based architecture and have done comprehensive surveying and field work including a mosque in Istanbul and a church in Rome. Surveying plays an important part in the process of building and gives an understanding of context and a precise drawing underlayer.
Good architecture for me is to create safe and recognizable environments for the individual, where awareness and refined use of materials, light, construction and proportions plays a big part in the effort to for fill this.
