Why the (x) in Utzon?
Among the possible ways to reconsider Utzon legacy, one can look at his strategies
for variation and repetition in the light of the recent development of computer
software, parametric modelling, computational techniques, digital fabrication
and their application in architectural design and engineering. The Utzon(x) projects
and summer school is a hands-on learning environment, where theoretical
knowledge is coupled with physical and practical assignments related to specific
design themes. During the two weeks of The Utzon(x) Summer School, twenty-
five Danish and international students have worked on creating the project
displayed in the Utzon Center court yard which has been unfolded as a working
process and method in the exhibition space.
