During one week Stonezone was the host for 28 students from BAS
. This private funded architecture school in Bergen (Norway) has a special approach. The 5 year study program does not only investigate the technical or esthetical parts of architecture, but also involves environment, durability, and the human as a whole. And it's important for the students to experience.
This is what Stonezone offered. During one week, accompanied by teachers Asbjörn Andresen
, Lukas Arons
and Hans Leutscher
they worked together, or individually. To mention some spectaculair results, please have a look at the construction of l'Arc de Hällevadsholm
or the building of a traditional stone wall
They made visits to several industries, like Jogra AS (Norway)
, Hallindens Granit AB (Sweden)
, looked at some old 1600 and 1800 century granite bridges, and a very modern one, the spectaculair bridge over the Örekilsälv
This one week gave the students the opportunity not only to see how a modern granite quarry produces some of the finest building materials, but they also experienced working in the same material them selves. And with the visit to the bridges and a stone church with origins that go back to the 9th century they could see how in the days of old the craftsmen worked.
