HÅNDVÆRK Bookazine – Number 07: Construction
Craft, craftmanship, makersmovement, artsandcrafts by Rigetta Klint
HÅNDVÆRK takes you behind the scene of crafts, artisanal production, architecture and design in respectful and in-depth interviews accompanied by beautiful photographs and complemented by top-quality printing and paper.
HÅNDVÆRK bookazine no. 7 invites you on a visit to an architect, a design firm, a blacksmith, a brazier, a bricklayer, a carpenter and a thatcher, among others, and shows you how bathroom tiles can be made with a high content of crushed discarded bricks. You can learn about painting with egg-oil tempera and get updated on textiles, glass, ceramic, food and drink.
From editors’ letter by Rigetta Klint:
‘Perhaps you might like to scale up in a future issue of HÅNDVÆRK?’ asked an architect who attended a talk I gave a few months ago about my work on the HÅNDVÆRK bookazine.
She added, ‘As I’m sure you know, climate accounts are going to be mandatory in construction from 2023. Initially, there will be a cap on CO2 emissions per square metre per year for new builds over 1,000 m2, and from 2025, the requirement is going to apply to all new construction.’
Indeed, I had heard about it, and yes, I was interested in scaling up and taking a look at architecture and construction; in fact, I had already begun.
At this point in the process, it was quite clear to me that there are many interests at play in construction, refurbishment and renovation and that dealing with architecture and construction is about much more than just scaling up. Above all, construction is big business – and a huge factor in relation to the above-mentioned and increasingly ubiquitous climate accounts.
Where there is a will there is a way, and not just when it comes to reducing our carbon footprint.
In my interviews we take a broad look at materials, aesthetics, working processes, working life experiences, lived life experience and education.
