The course examines the finishes employed in a large-scale development project south of Copenhagen in a rapidly growing area. A complete overview of the project is provided and the technologies and materials discussed. Course material includes an explanatory text, many pictures and a series of technical and construction-detail drawings of the envelope and construction system accompanied by legends.
