    Tekstiler Kvartal

    Chris Dove / Thesis / Post Graduate Diploma / Mackintosh School of Architecture, Glasgow School of Art / Glasgow, UK / July 2014

    The Tekstiler Kvartal of Nørrebro  is located in the centre of a large urban block in Copenhagen. The blocks of Nørrebro are of an unusually large proportion, and used to contain industrial buildings at their centres which would provide work for the district. These centres were completely lost in a series of over zealous slum clearance in the 1960s. The thesis looks to reintroduce the idea of industry in the centre of a block, to form a new urban strategy for Nørrebro.

    The Tekstiler Kvartal creates a situation in the centre of a block, consisting of two large industrial components that occupy the territory in the centre. These large glass and concrete components contain the spaces for recycling and making of the textiles into raw material in which young designers can use. An archive of textiles is established. The introduction of glass and concrete, into the centre of the block, acts as a new typology of architecture in the centre of the block. These industrial spaces are contrasted by a layer of smaller scale, studio spaces, which connect the industrial centre with the retail and residential edge of the block. The studio components of the Kvartal are of a solid brick construction, reminiscent of the traditional Danish typology in which it sit. The studios look to act as an intermediate element between the centre and the perimeter through the use of scale, materiality and the introduction of outside shared spaces. These exterior spaces act as a common ground between the industry and the residential edge, encouraging the integration of the public into the industry, and with it the reinvention of Nørrebro.

    Gloria Steinem and Dorothy Pitman-Hughes, 1972 and 2014

    Both by Dan Bagan

    Wanna see my cry like a baby? Ask me who these women were.

    Hughes’ father was beaten nearly to death by the KKK when she was a kid, and what does she do? Become an activist to try and stop that from happening to other people. She raised money to bail civil rights protesters out of jail. She helped women get out of abusive situations by providing shelter for them until they got on their feet. She founded an agency that helped women get to work without having to leave their children alone, because childcare in the 1970s? Not really a thing. In fact, a famous feminist line in the 70s was “every housewife is one man away from welfare.”

    Then she teamed up with Steinman to found the Women’s Action Alliance, which created the first battered women’s shelters in history. They attacked women’s rights issues through boots on the ground activism, problem solving, and communication. They stomped over barriers of race and class to meet women where they were: mostly mothers who wanted better for themselves and their children.

    These are women are who I always wanted to be.
